1993 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series Extended Cab C1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

Ive had trucks before but this chevy is the best beast I've ever owned. I have the 5.7l and auto transmission. If you have a crude understanding of basic maintenance, you can keep this truck running forever. If not, when it does break the parts are the cheapest I've ever seen in a truck.. Even the motor can be had for under a grand. The body has no rust the frame has surface rust I regularly sand and repaint. Its a shame they don't make them like this anymore.


Best Features

-The engine is a powerful -The torque is perfect in every gear -Exterior is all metal including bumpers body frame. -Frame is built solid -Handles quite well for a truck -Easy to steer despite its size -Comfortable front seating can easily accomidate two 6'5" sized people


Worst Features

Center console needs a better securing system plastic bolt points tend to break making the console able to move around Back seats will seat midgets or children anything over 5'5" is going to have a difficult time sitting in the back.

Review

This truck has been in My family for at least 8 years, we got it when it had around 200k on it. We had to rebuild the 5.7L v8 only because the frosh plug fell out and it burned up. it now has 460k on it body, and interior is still decent, and besides regular maintenance, like shocks, starters, breaks and oil changes this truck has been the most reliable truck i've seen. PS minus 40 degrees Celsius, still starts without being plugged in. Like a rock


Best Features

good engine, doesn't rob you on gas, great body style.


Worst Features

none i could think of. Bring em back?, remake em some new technology in it would be nice but keep the main parts the same.

Review

bought this truck used in 1996 with 56k miles on it. Have 283,000 on it now. No major problems. Had to replace the transmission at about 180,000 miles, though this was my fault thinking I could pull a heavy trailer in OD on flat run. Replaced transmission and have had no other problems. Just replaced stereo speakers last week, all had gone out. Have put 2 A/C compressors and that is about it. Use Mobil 1 5w30 synthetic oil and change oil every 10,000 miles, filter every 5k. uses 1/2 quart in 5k. Still pulls trailer great with 350 engine. get about 16.5-18 mpg in town, can get as much as 22.5 on hwy. Clear coat starting to peel, but will keep this truck till it dies, and then some.


Best Features

Good puller. Fairly comfortable on a trip. Just an all around great truck.


Worst Features

Better sound system, though today's units are there.

Review

This is the 3rd 4.3l TBI I have owned. I recommend this motor in anything GM/Chevy made. My truck tows like nobody's business & fires-up strong EVERY time I turn the key. Has not once left me stranded. I just keep up on reg maintenance, the 189k miles she has now will undoubtedly be only a portion of what she will do. Parts are super easy to find too.


Best Features

Body style: looks like a solid truck...no wimpiness at all. Under- hood light that pulls out, love it! Large steering wheel


Worst Features

Chevy should go "old School" & bring this one back! They might get off the 10 worst list!

Review

The ol' girl turned over 311K today, and has never had major (4.3L Z engine) surgery. I've replaced bolt on parts, and had the manual tranny rebuilt, but this Chevy has just run and run. She left me stranded just once in the past 15 years when the fuel pump went. Original universal joints in the drive shaft! Pulled a 4000# camper many miles without complaint. The BIG problem was de-laminating paint. Was a problem, because the paint just ain't there anymore.


Best Features

I really like the way this truck handles. I also appreciate the room under the hood for storage of jumper cables, tools, etc. It's pretty handy when you do remote camping.


Worst Features

Rear disk brakes. Oh, paint that actually sticks to the truck.
