I've been test driving a 2008 Chevy Silverado 1500 4WD Crew Cab this week. Wow, the best is made even better. I should have a full writeup on it later this week.
Yes the button you are referring to turns off the traction control.I have been driving a 2008 Silverado 1500 CC 4X4 LT he last couple of days while mine is in for warranty service (heated seats are malfunctioning) and I really like the truck. It's very peppy and comfortable to drive. One question though since I can't find an owners manual in it, next to the cigarette lighter there is a button that has picture of a vehicle with a "burnout" or squiggly lines behind it. It this button for some kind of traction control or locking differential?
It's all money, these Trucks keep getting more expensive ... but they keep getting built better too.Hi All-
I purchased my 08 Silverado LT1 Z71 ExCab Long Bed 4x4 in January. Now have about 4500 miles on it. So far I only have 2 complaints: fuel mileage and the fabric on the seats is difficult to keep clean. Everything seems to stick to it, and very hard to vacuum.
Other than that, I love it.
I traded in a '98 GMC 2500 XCAB 4x4 AND an '02 Chevy Silverado 1500 LS Z71 XCAB for the new truck. I loved the 02, had no problems 100k miles. It rode very nicely.
The new one rides even better. Has great power with the 5.3 Vortec. The guages look cool, sound system is good.
So far so good! I just hope it lives past my loan!
