1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Silverado 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I bought this 96 step-side manual transmission 2-Dr regular bed truck new in 1997. It has Mark III trim and is customized throughout, overhead lights, wood inside trim, running boards, trim over windows, trim over back lights, rails on trailer bed, big wheels, etc. Its black outside and grey inside. It now has only 84,000 miles. I wouldn't trade it for anything. Have been asked to sell everywhere I go but no way Jose. Only thing I have repaired is water pump, regular oil changes, new spark plugs, new tires, new clutch, upholstry front seats, replace back tail light. I am now 71 years old and apparently its gonna outlast me! I love it.


Best Features

I love the way it looks. Very sporty and still shiny after 18 years. But I keep it in garage. It is great to haul stuff in as I move around quite a bit. And, my dog loves the front seat. She's a german shepherd and have plenty of room for her. These new cars and trucks have bucket seats so no way can I buy a new vehicle as and she wants to ride in front seat. lmao.


Worst Features

Can't think of a single one.

Review

I bought the truck used with 157,000 miles on it. I've put nearly 20,000 on it since I had it which is about a year. The only things that really went wrong was the alternator went out and a pulley on the belt od=f the alternator which is just normal. I also had the foer wheel drive checked out but nothing major was wrong. I am usually a Ford person but buying the Z71 was a wise choice. I think it is as good as the F-150 trucks I had before it. I will probably drive it till it drops. It was well worth what I payed for it. The motor has plenty of power. It pulls a travel trailer easily. It gets around 20 miles per gallon which is good for a full size truck. I'll keep it till it quits.

Review

This truck was the best truck I have ever owned. I found this sight looking how to repair a inside door handle that has wore out But it has 398 thousand miles on it now. Good maintenance on this truck means good life on this truck. I am I was going to trade it in.and when they told me what the value was for it I decided to keep it and when It gets a little older I might trade it in but maybe not. Thank you David Stanley and GM you built a great truck for me


Best Features

The ride is great, It will out do a Ford or Dodge in the mud and snow out pull anything it's size even the Ford Power max diesel. We hooked one up and did a pull test. This is one tough truck


Worst Features

the inside door handles need to be made out of metal, I don't like plastic, But this is the first time I have had to spend any money on it

Review

Since purchasing this truck a year ago (143,000 miles) the only repairs I've made were the water pump and brake rotors. I've put this truck through its paces and it keeps on going. I couldn't ask for much more. GM hit the mark with this truck, the z-71 package and 5.7 hauls 5th wheel trailer without hesitation and has handled everything i've thrown at it. Overall a great truck with many more miles to come.


Best Features

The floor shift 4WD works flawlessly. Lots of power. Cold AC. No sound system problems.


Worst Features

Remove the top speed limiter. 97 MPH in 3rd gear. cup holder and driver's AC vents to far away

Review

drove the truck daily for 3.5 years, bought it with 140000, has 230000 now, no problems yet. Body did rust a little, but these trucks with the 5.0 will run forever as long as you take care of them. Still use it as a work truck, would drive it anywhere


Best Features

Pretty good gas mileage, 20-22 MPG highway, good styling for a truck, very comfortable ride


Worst Features

A little underpowered for a V8, would prefer a locking differential, 2WD not good in the snow
