My Day with a Chevy Silverado

Last week as I was heading into work my little “Bloggy Buggy” started acting strangely and knowing that she was in no condition to make the hour and a half commute I drove directly to Diver Chevrolet in Wilmington. What I had anticipated to be some minor adjustments turned into a full two-day recall repair.

However, this minor setback did give me an opportunity to drive a new Chevy Silverado and man oh man, what a great vehicle. First of all, I drove in with the smallest Chevy, the tiny blue Spark and drove out with the largest loaner available the Silverado. To say I was wee bit nervous would be an understatement because the last large vehicle I drove was a mini van when the boys were young. However, once I adjusted the seats and mirrors then drove it for about and hour I was in 7th heaven. My Chevy Silverado loaner

It’s amazing the type of respect you get from other drivers on the road with a vehicle of this size as opposed to my tiny “toy car’. The interior was comfy and roomy enough to seat 8, and the SiriusXM Satellite Radio sound system was awesome, I was jamming to Jazz all the way to work!

The back up camera was so cool that when I got home, hubby and I drove up and down the driveway several times just because! This truck was by far a much more comfortable and smooth ride that I’ve ever experienced and surprisingly it wan’t too bad on gas mileage either.

However, the next day I did exchange it for the Chevy Cruze which was the vehicle that my son originally wanted.  On 95 in rush hour traffic I need to be able to maneuver a little bit more and I didn’t want to risk running over anyone with a large truck – just kidding (lol).

Thanks Diver Cherolet, for not only servicing my car and letting me have two different loaners but for also having the best Valets in the state – those guys are great!  See ya next month for an oil change!
