Like a Rock- Chevrolet C/K 1500 is solid

Vehicle
1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab SB
Review
In searching for a used truck, I test drove the Ford F150, Dodge RAM, Dodge Dakota, Chevrolet C/K 1500 and Toyota Tundra. I bought a 1997 Chevy Silverado Ext Cab SB because of the sturdy design, powertrain, body style and the price. The 1500 is a rugged workhorse that can carry cargo and tow, yet provides spacious and comfortable ride for driver and passengers. The 5.7l engine is quiet, reliable and powerful. The automatic transmission is smooth. The 4 wheel drive gets me through challenging terrain (with weight in the bed). At 7 years and 70k+ miles, the vehicle has required only regular maintenance and replacement of wear items(tires, brakes)
Favorite Features
5.7 liter engine, automatic transmission, four wheel drive, interior comforts (lumbar, CD Rom, spacious seating)
Suggested Improvements
Firestone Steeltex tires wear like steel. The tire compound provides long treadware and are ideal for construction sites. They are not good for highway driving. They provide unsatisfactory traction on wet/icy surfaces. The tires bounce giving a rough and bumpy ride.
