1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab SB
I have enjoyed driving this truck but
have a number of items fail due to poor
quality. The differential had a
bearing go out at 77k and again at
154k, notice a pattern, housing not
straight. Mechanic said this was common
for that year and he was doing about 2
a week on this truck. Replaced at 50 to
60k the master brake assembly, water
pump, fuel pump, alternator, and I have
electric problems. Just very poor
quality control on these trucks. Gas
mileage as expected, body by fisher
alright as expected.
Cruise control very steady, seats
comfortable, nice to drive.
Try for some quality in the produce,
too many failures too fast. Cup holder
in bad place in front of vent. Dash
very hot don't understand why. Mine has
hwy miles only and has some rattles it
should not have, just poor quality for
this expensive a truck.
