I computed my repair and maint costs for the 4.5 years I've had my Silverado, bought new in 2001. Including everything (tires, oil changes, repairs, etc),it comes to about 3500.00, which assuming I have no major repairs until March (my 5th anniversary) comes out to about $700/year. I was wondering what other folks have seen with their trucks, and if this is considered average or excessive. I have to say that the experience with the truck has been great. Only stranded once (fuel pump), and only one *major* repair (fuel pump). All the rest has been routine stuff: xmission, differential, injectors, brakes, tires, etc.
