Hello all, Im just looking for first hand opinions on a 2008
Chevy Silverado. I am looking at buying one this week but would like to know
what some owners think of them and if there are any major issues with them.
Thanks[cheers]

When you say expensive , how bad. I believe it is having one replaced as I type this.
I think its basically the same as the 05 but different body style

The 08 body style has the active fuel management. Shuts down 4 cylinders etc. People have had oil consumption issues with the 5.3 in them. Lots of people get the AFM disabled. Not sure about the 4.8s.

we have a 2010 and have no problems with the afm or the truck at all really..... had some oil leaks done on warranty and a problem with the seat and thats it. all other 'warranty' work was related to a pinched wire for my wheel sensors that my self installed airbags did... apparently anyway haha i never checked it out bc they were willing to warranty everything :D I do hear some very faint pinging when in the 4cyl mode tho. so faint I have to be going down a road with no other traffic with radio off and window down haha
