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!


Favorite Features

Engine.


Suggested Improvements

Get the whine out of the rear diff.

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


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.


Favorite Features

The mechanical dependability.

Review

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.


Favorite Features

Air bags, power locks, antilock brakes, tilt steering, full rear bench seat, privacy glass, windshield wash spray nossels (distribute wash fluid evenly over entire wishield).

Review

Overall this truck has lived up to the GM reputation. Other than basic wear mechanical failure such as alternator, brake pads, water pump, and things of the, there have been no serious problems. Its firm suspension and connected steering give you awesome communication with the road and is actually extremely nimble for a large truck.


Favorite Features

The best feature next to the power is the styling, this truck just looks awesome.


Suggested Improvements

The one thing that needs vast improvement is the braking sytem, its just too mushy. In a hard stop you almost have to stand up on the brake pedal to get it to do anything.
