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

Review

Have 170,000 miles and still going strong. Powerful Vortech 350 best GM has ever had in my book. Only problems to date are thermostat, u-joint , and one fuel pump but that's no big deal with the amount of miles. Drive it till the wheels fall off, but the way its going i don't know if that will ever happen. GREAT TRUCK!

I have replaced radiator starter alternator and belts that's pretty much it. Wasn't really a truck guy till I got this at 148000 miles still going strong. These gas prices are hurting but I can't really part with it. I'll keep rolling till the wheels fall off. And I can do some of the work myself as a rookie mechanic. Will be a loyal bowtie fan forever.

I bought this truck used in 2005. Since then I've replaced the starter, alternator, and water pump. Just recently...last weekend put in a rebuilt engine. I love driving this truck. It now has 163,700 miles on it and going strong.

Review

Terrible vehicle. So far replaced manifold gasket, water pump,starter X2, A/C compressor, and clutch because the slave cylinder leaked. I have spent more on parts since purchase than I did over the 22 years I drove the last vehicle. For some strange reason GM did not cover the rails on the bed with the bed-liner - I wonder how much they saved doing that?

Bought new With regular scheduled maintenance this truck has been great. Did first tune up at 100000 miles and was still running great. Truck has been replaced by a 2005 C1500 1/2 ton crew cab, didn't have the heart to trade it in, will find it a good home where it will give another 150000 trouble free miles.

Needs fixed constantly. I bought the vehicle new in 1996 and it has cost me thousands in repair costs. Whenever I get in it, I wonder if it will get me to my destination. It is the last General Motors product that I will ever own.

Excellent Work Truck

Review

Here's a review from some serious experience - over 200,000 hard miles! This truck carries a tradesman cap and a full load of tools/supplies every day. And it hauls my kids to soccer practice, too! Though it's a little rough around the edges after seven years, this Chevy stills feels solid over the hard bumps, and still offers my tired butt a nice comfortable seat. When this one dies, I will go out and buy another one, with far fewer miles on it, of course! This truck will take whatever you subject it to, with some pretty ordinary maintenance along the way (much of the original equipment remains intact). I guess it really is "like a rock"!

Fourth GM Truck Purchase

Review

I just bought my fourth fullsize GM truck today -- a used '96 Silverado X- cab. My previous used purchase was a 1997 GMC Suburban (same vehicle). It had 287,000 miles on it when I traded it in on a 2002 Suburban, and the only repairs I ever made to it was an intake manifold gasket (at 280,000) and an alternator (at 260,000). The received Mobil 1 10W40 its entire life and ran and looked like new when I sold it. I'm sure that vehicle will go for 400,000 miles with no problems. Unbelievable. I look forward to the next 309,000 miles on my "new" '96 model.

Bought with 108000. the engine,trans,diff fluids were all burnt and neglected. Even the radiator was empty.I changed all the fluids tune up and its still going strong at 150000. There were several reasonably priced bolt ons from the part store btween 130 and 140000 miles. Alternator,waterpump,fuel pump,fan clutch,but overall a strong, nice looking driving truck.
