Poor Quality Build
By P. Sauers on
2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Classic LT1 2dr Regular Cab 8 ft. LB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
The 1500 Classic was a great bargain brand new. After adding weight to the bed, the tail end doesn't "jump around" on rough roads anymore. Excellent power and exceleration. I have experienced really great gas mileage with the V8 engine. Typically 316 miles on a half a tank (big tank). The seating is very comfortable for 3 people. The driver side seat squeeks alot and found that the welds that hold the seat down need to be re-welded (warrantied). Surprised that it handles well in bad winter conditions! Hub caps always come loose. Breaks squeel alot but,to dealership for some reason. Aux Power outlet has a electrical burn smell when used. Adding cruise or cd radio is not poss due to computer.
The 8 foot bed. The power of the Vortec 8 engine is impressive. Great gas mileage. Comfortable seating. Full size spare tire. Passanger airbag on/off feature. On/Off Switch for daytime running lights. Great tow package/handling.
A standard CD player and cruise control would have been nice. The interior design is 80's ish needs modernized. Better hub caps that don't come loose and fall off. Larger tail lights. Locking tailgate. Dealers will not install cruise or cd radio aftermarket due to computer/electrical issues.
