Hi, my name is Randy and I am new to the forum and live in western Washington State. I have owned many GM vehicles but my current truck is the first time I have owned a full size Chevy truck. Its a 2012 Silverado 4dr LTZ with 29,000 miles on it so far and have had it about 2yrs now. My past vehicles include (from beginning to present) 1975 Elcamino (First car) 1989 Chevy S10 Blazer Sport, 1998 Chevy S10 ZR2, 2000 Chevy Blazer ZR2, 1999 Chevy Tahoe LT, 2003 Chevy Tahoe LT, 2005 Chevy Suburban Z71, 2013 GMC Acadia SLT, And currently I have a 2002 Chevy TrailBlazer LTZ and 2012 Chevy Silverado LTZ Z71. All of these vehicles have been great for me...none ever gave me any major machanical issues like engine or tranny. I did have the rear diff go out on the 89 s10 blazer but that is it other than normal water pumps, fuel pumps, ect.
