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

Review

This truck has been amazing. 140,000 brutal miles, and only two repairs. A high pressure line on the transmission burst at 62,000 miles, it cost $110 to fix at the dealer, and the water pump went out at 105,000 miles (another $100). Tomorrow I am replacing the front brake rotors and pads (it still has the factory pads) for $250. This truck has been driven hard and abused for seven years (but maintained well), yet it drives and looks like a year-old truck. I got my money's worth out of this one!

Best Features

The 5.7 Vortec engine, the leather power bucket seats, the overhead console, the auto-dimming mirror with compass, the CD stereo, the 3rd door, the keyless entry, the ride, the power, the reliability.

Worst Features

This is my second C1500 extended-cab Silverado, both have had annoying differential whine at all speeds. More fuel capacity would be nice. The outside door handles feel junky, and the door hinges pop. The 1-2 transmission shift can be abrupt at times, yet the other two shifts are silky smooth.
