1993 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series 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.


Favorite 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


Suggested Improvements

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

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

1993 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

This is my first ever pickup truck. I have been a Chevy fan for years (own 3 other Chevy Cars now too) this is not a truck for hauling heavy loads (V-6) but for daily usage and light hauling, it's hard to beat. I now have 142000 miles on this truck and it still runs great. I have redone the A/C as I live in south Florida and it is a must have. Other than that just basic maint. Getting about 17 MPG but gets down into the 10-12 range if you tow anything. Easy to work on and get parts for, plenty of room to swing a wrench too. If the V-6 dies, I am tossing in a 350 crate motor, but no sign of weakness from the 4.3 so far.


Favorite Features

Full size bed, simple drive train layout, not a technological nightmare.


Suggested Improvements

Better seats, cargo hooks.

Review

I bought this truck for 1000 bucks, its been worth every penny. This truck is very easy and comfortable to drive. The engine has always had a squeaky noise (I think from the valves). Despite the wimpy 4.3 engine that does not accelorate well, it just keeps going and going like the energizer bunny. OK so the trans is failing and I"ll probably rebuild it. For some reason my truck has very little rust, all in the typical areas about as big as dimes but only surface rust. I have the button radio and heating style, the volume button is very jumpy.


Favorite Features

Reliability, and ride comfort.


Suggested Improvements

Door latches especially the passernger side does not want to stay closed all the way, so it rattles, unless you shut the floor mat in it. No door pin adjustment, its a fixed pin.

Review

This vehicle has been to the dealership several times a year since purchased new. The items range from electrical (doors, wipers,dash), brakes (master brake cylinder replaced 4 times, 3 times during the 3 yr warranty, in the past 9 years), alternator replaced 3 times, intake manifold has no gasket, repaired with silicone, rocker cover gaskets replaced, gages repaired, chrome tape on grill bubbled after 3 years,burns 1 quart of oil since new between 3000 mile oil changes, both side plastic radiator tanks replace because of cracks after 60,000 miles, water pump replaced after 50,000 miles,etc.


Favorite Features

Excellent ride for a 4 wheel drive, paint (Sandstone) is in brand new condition, excellent 4 wheel drive system.


Suggested Improvements

Look at the imports. Toyota's Tundra would be a good place to start. Domestic American vehicle manufacturers must improve the reliability of their product!
