Sense purchase, my C1500 has been very
reliable. I bought the truck for what
a truck is built for, work. It's used
for hauling, towing, and getting the
kids to school. At 115k miles, it's
still going strong. Only major repair
has been a new clutch. This truck has
served us well.
On trucks under 8,600 pounds, the passenger airbag can be deactivated when a rear-facing child safety seat is installed. Low-speed steering effort is reduced this year, and a refined transmission fluid pump results in smoother shifts. An alternative fuel version of the Vortec 5700 is available, but only on a specific model. K1500's get a tighter turning radius, and three new colors debut. The third door option will be more widely available, because it is now a required option on all C/K 1500 short-bed extended cab trucks.
