1998 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series K1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

Overall this has been a good vehicle. The brakes are the main complaint. I usually get about 30,000 miles per set on the front. The rear linings are fine. The brakes have never felt that strong. The alternator failed at about 75,000 miles. The rear brake cylinders failed at 94,000 miles at a cost of $450.00 as well as the pitman and idler arms, another $400.00. For the most part I have enjoyed the truck. It has a comfortable ride and enough horsepower to handle most jobs. This truck would be ideal if not for the problems listed above.

Best Features

The center and overhead consoles provide good looks and plenty of storage. Automatic locking hubs controlled by a dash mounted switch is very convenient. The rear bench seat folds up for more storage behind the front seats. The audio system sounds very good.

Worst Features

Better brakes and fewer problems before the 100,000 mile mark. I believe all vehicles should be trouble free at least this long.
