1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

bought my truck about two months ago.
It has only about 60k miles on it. The
fuel pump went out last month and the
fuel pump system just went out this
weekend. Cost me $540. It seems when
ever i drive it on the freeway
something goes wrong so im kind of
scared to go back on again. I love the
design and its powerful engine when
its working though.


Best Features

I like the full consel, most of the trucks have the bench seat. The interior is pretty well design.


Worst Features

The turning radious sucks. Make a switch so you could turn the lights off during the day because they are always on.

1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series K1500 Cheyenne 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB


Review

Bought it new in 97. Put in a tranny at
165,000. The usual maintenance. The
motor is the 305. I have always run
synthetic oil in it. 175k and the oil
pressure is rock solid. Real good
compression for high miles. It's a
great truck!


Best Features

Engine.


Worst Features

Get the whine out of the rear diff.

I have a 97 Z71 Extended Cab. I love
it. I have 4wd stick in the floor
with 3rd door. I get nearly 20 mpg on
the highway, good for a 5.7L motor. I
have nothing bad to say about I am the
2nd owner of this truck.


Best Features

Speed Control Volume (SCV) Full control 8 way power seats. Spacious interior. Awesome power.


Worst Features

None

Review

This truck is just great. The paint is
still beautiful, all the gagits still
work, power windows and doors, never a
problem. It runs great. After 8 years
and 100,000 miles you just can't beat
it. Other than regular maintance, this
truck has cost me nothing in repairs,
it is reliable and dependable. I
highly recommend it.


Best Features

The mechanical dependability.
