1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Cheyenne 2dr Regular Cab LB


Review

I've had this truck since 97 and since then I've put on 378,794 miles on it. I've never had a problem with the engine. The only major thing were the cruise control, and the fuel pump went out 2-3 times. This thing towed my boat better than my friends Dodge Ram v8. Never going with Dodge again after that. I have the 4.3 liter v6. Next vehicle will definitely be another Chevy.


Favorite Features

Towing capability, rugged looks, soft seats, leg room, quietness, and smooth riding.


Suggested Improvements

Cupholder is weak. Interior hard to clean.

1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series K1500 Silverado 2dr Regular Cab 4WD Stepside SB


Review

I bought this truck with 110,000 miles on it and still drive it now, it has 235,000 miles on it. I service it myself, with all the best parts. I put a throttle body spacer, K&N air filter, Hypertec chip, true dual exhast, Accel super coil, and I get 16 in the city 19 on the Highwy with 32x11.50 tires. The vortec 350 engine is great for pulling. I don't care what anybody say's but my Chevy will out pull, out run, and out last any foreign made truck


Favorite Features

The guages, push button 4wd,


Suggested Improvements

Fix the u-joint problem, I changed mine 5 times and it was greased more than normal.

Review

I've only had my truck for about a year and bought it with 129,000 and it now reads 144,000 and I have already had to put brakes, tires,alternator, intake gaskets and fuel pump in that period of time but other than that my truck runs strong.


Favorite Features

The one thing I like most bout my 97 is the hp and the transmission. On the highway I average about 16mpg. But that's with headers, exhaust, and k&n air filter.


Suggested Improvements

Fuel mileage and ride quality.

Review

I bought my Z71 truck in July of 2002. At first I was hesitant because the truck already had 150,000 miles on it. But test driving and having my mechanic inspect the truck and the great deal I got, I took it. Aside from the gas mileage I get but what can you expect from the 5.7 workhorse? Four years later and the truck about to hit 200,000 miles happy to say I have not had any major problems with the truck. Everthing is still working and it runs like a champ.
