1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series Extended Cab 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!

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Roomy inside since I'm tall.


Suggested Improvements

Wish I had better gas mileage since these prices are high but oh well

Review

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.


Favorite Features

It has great looks and lots of power. The back seat is a little tight but I never sit back there.


Suggested Improvements

Cup holders in the fold down console. Sun roof.

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?


Favorite Features

Seats, A/C (when it works!), convenience of having a truck


Suggested Improvements

Use a Toyota body, a Toyota engine, a Toyota transmission, and a Toyota clutch - then everything will be fine.
