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


Review

Purchased the pickup a few months back. Has the 5.7 Vortec V8 350 (Monster of torque) Has 102,000 miles and could be sold as brand new. Would trust this vehicle to drive across country and back. Fuel could last a little longer but getting about 16mpg in town which is not bad for a heavy pickup. Everything has held up from paint/clear coat to 0 rust and mechanics. I would recommend this vehicle to anyone needing a powerful yet smooth ride.


Best Features

Motor. Suspension holds smooth and absorbs most of bad roads. Able to pull anything I hook to including broken down Fords.


Worst Features

GM fuel pumps. Mine works fine but they have a bad rep. A little noisy. Other than that could wish for 30mpg?

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.


Best Features

NIce to look at but real high maintanence.


Worst Features

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

Review

Plenty of power. This truck has 4:10 rear end gear ratio so it pulls trailers easily. And it rides nice too. This is the first truck I have owned that my wife doesn't mind driving.


Best Features

Power plus nice ride

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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

My father bought this truck brand new in '98. I got it in 2000 and I've been driving it since. Great truck, no major problems. The salt air along the coast has taken a toll on the bumpers but other than that cosmetically it's clean. Recently had a dealership mechanic look at it, he couldn't believe it had 170,000 mi on it and told me the engine sounds better than the new trucks they sell.


Best Features

Powerful vortec engine that's indestructable


Worst Features

Chevy should break out the mold and produce factory new 1998s again.
