In addition, two other Chevrolet models were ranked in the top three of their respective segment; the Tahoe was ranked second in the Large SUV segment and the Silverado was ranked third in the Large Light Duty Pickup segment.

The study is based on problems reported in the last year by the original owners of three-year-old vehicles. The fewer problems were noted, the higher the model was ranked. If you like driving cars, SUVs, or trucks that have fewer problems than most others in the industry, then you’ll love our lineup at Stalker Chevrolet!
