Review

Very reliable, great truck. Just hit 220,000 miles and still purrs. I am 3rd owner and over the 4 years since my purchased have only replaced starter and battery. Handles great in the snow, and towing. I hope it makes it to 300,000 miles!!
It is an automatic 5.7 V-8. ( It didn't have the option up above.)

Review

i have had 2 94 silverados in my life. the first one was bought new and totaled in 09, that one with the 5.7 auto, then i bought a 4.3 manual, the 5.7 is an awesome puller, and the 4.3 has a lot of power for a v6. these trucks are so tough, i hit at least 5 deer with these and never did a thing to them, (besides crack the grill little) the first one only lasted to about 140,000 miles and the 4.3 now has almost 200,000, and the only thing that was every changed was the alternator, the only downside is comfort and a HUGE turning radius, these trucks are a lot tougher than the new one, i hit a deer with my 06 and there was almost $5500 worth of damage


Best Features

power, fuel economy (v6 19) (v8 15) mixed city and highway, durability, like a rock


Worst Features

comfort, stiffer rear suspension, fix rattles down bumpy roads, horrible rattle in the doors, doors seem heavy and bend the hinges down so the doors dont line up sit proper

Review

We've had so many problems with this truck. We have already had to replace the ac bypass, fan belt, brakes, radiator hose, wheel cylinders on both sides and it's now July 2010. The truck constantly knocks and when the truck gets to 35 mph the rpm drop down and doesn't want to shift gears, the truck will die 2-3 times within 2 minutes and it's had a tune up so who knows what's wrong with it.. The gas is about 5mpg city and 10 highway, it's the 5.7 L V8. The driver side window motor has went out and we can no longer afford to keep repairing this truck so we decided to go ahead and start making payments on an 04 Hyundai. The truck has about 250K miles on it and runs horribly.


Best Features

NONE


Worst Features

Gas mileage, smaller engine, better interior, better built parts instead of cheap, don't run radiator hose over the alternator because it will burst after time as did to me.. Oh well it's a 16 yr old truck that needs to retire..

Review

I purchased my K1500 extended cab silverado Z71 with 68,000 miles in 5/02 from 1 original owner and it was great for the first 2 years. I did all the regular maintenance by the book. At 114,000 I had to replace the engine. The engine builder said the block was junk because the cylinder walls were soft like butter (original block made in Mexico) After this I had to replace the front and rear gears at 128,000. I had the truck repainted in 2004 because the paint was pealing. Other repairs were the radiator, alternator, rear brake lines 2 times A/c compressor fuel lines and the front brake caliper. Now at 145,000 my frame is rusted and cracked in half in front of the leaf spring.


Best Features

The body style and the interior bucket seats.


Worst Features

Chevrolet was more interested in making money by selling junk vehicles in the 80's and 90's. Chevrolet does make a quality truck now (2008 till present). We had to wait 20 years since the 1987 model to see quality again. I still love Chevrolet but 1988- 2007 trucks are built very poorly.
