by ajd520 on Dec 27, 2003 Vehicle: 1998 Chevrolet C/K 3500 Series
I purchased this truck new and "out of
the box" so to speak. It has been
nothing less than excellent to me. I do
a lot of towing with it- and sometimes
the loads are quite heavy. The only
fault with this truck is the brakes.
They could hold a little better. The
power is good for the 5.7 (350) and
considering this is also myt daily
driver- fuel economy is very respectful
(17 on the highway)- something Ford and
Dodge could only dream of having. The
interior is quiet- and there's no
rattles either. I would definitely
recommend this vehicle to anyone
interested in purchasing one.
Model consolidation takes place in anticipation of the all-new Silverado. Trim levels have been changed from three to two (Base and LS) and two new Crew Cab Short Box models (C/K2500 and C/K3500 Series) are offered. Additionally, the C/K1500 will be available only as an LS Extended Cab Short Box with the third door. Mechanical upgrades include new internal components and seals for automatic transmissions, improved cooling system and starter motor durability and three new exterior paint colors.
