1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series Extended Cab C1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

I had a 1988 chev and was real happy with it. Bought a used 98 last yr with a 5 litre, auto, 2 wheel dr,and it has cost me plenty. The trani went for a $3,000 touch, rear pinon bearing, manifold gasket, drive shaft seal, thermostat, heater coupler, rad, fuel pump humms like a 747 ready to take off, it's been replaced once already, truck wonders on the road, no pulling power, interior lights work sometimes, frnt seats rattle and move while locked in place, rear seat does the same, squeeky 3rd dr, crappy tire jack design, try changing a tire at 30 below! I'm already looking for a different truck. Really disappointed in Chev.


Favorite Features

NIce to look at but real high maintanence.


Suggested Improvements

Build something with quality to be proude of. Shame on Chev.

Review

Bought with 38k miles on it, now have 190k with origional engine and major parts. Had to replace normal stuff like alternator, water pump, starter and things that wore out. Known problems with these are a short list. Intake manifold leak, usually around 120k miles or so. Once fixed it is great. Fuel pumps, weak, on my 3rd one. The Vortec higher fuel pressure puts a stress on the GM pumps and when they go, can be real pricey. Radiator cracked at plastic side tank. 5.7 Vortec engine is the greatest, real good power, and with the bed loaded I still get 17mpg highway which I don't consider bad for a truck of this size. Holding value better then any car or truck I have owned.


Favorite Features

Vortec engine. Comfortable on long rides. Fun to drive. Very dependable and rugged


Suggested Improvements

A fuel pump that will last Intake manifold gasket is well known to repair shops, should be recalled as they all seem to fail, new ones fix the problems, so once fixed, good for a long time, unlike the fuel pumps which are in the gas tank and can be pricey.

Review

I got my 98 z71 with only 34k miles on it a few years ago. It's very well built. Easier to work on than other vehicles. Throw a lift and some tires on it and you're ready


Favorite Features

Power, z71 is nice, very reliable, great truck.


Suggested Improvements

Sometimes I wish for a longbed

Review

I have had great luck with the truck. No mechanical or electrical problems. I intend to keep it 18-20 more years and if and when I do have problems, most of the equipment is accessible


Favorite Features

Pewter/champagne color, seats sit higher than new model trucks. I'm 5'10" and I like that. It rides quiet and I like the 'square look' of the front end


Suggested Improvements

I only have two doors. 3rd or 4th door and more room in extended cab seating area. Also have had trouble with opening center console box.

Review

I bought this truck new and the price scared me to death. However, I have had no major problem at all. Still looks great! Drives great! The paint shines up fantastic. Now that it is paid for I love it even more. 4wd is awesome & easy, power is fantastic and third door nice. Quiet also. I would definitely buy this truck again! Vortec engine is dependable and the ride of this truck is very nice.


Favorite Features

Favorite features are the dependable engine, 4wd, bucket seats, center & top console and exterior looks in that order.


Suggested Improvements

Extended cab back seat could be more comfortable and heavier duty brakes would have been nice.
