Review of the 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • Info is not yet available.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Bigger. Faster. Stronger. Smarter.

  • Cons

    The bow tie boys weren't smart enough to figure out how to get a fourth-door installed on the extended cab (aka the Windstar effect). The interior revision didn't go nearly as far as it should have in terms of design and materials.

  • What's New for 1999

    Chevrolet has redesigned the decade-old C/K pickup and given the truck a new name. Major structural, power, braking and interior enhancements characterize the new Silverado. Styling is evolutionary rather than revolutionary, inside and out.

Vehicle: 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab LB

Had to repair transmission @ 60,000 miles ($1900), ABS system went kaput about the same time (est. $1,000 repair); have since found that this is a common problem that Chevy will not own up to. In spite of all these problems, I still like the truck. It's comfortable driving and fairly luxurious for a truck.




Reliable and comfortable ride

Great ride! This vehicle handles good in all conditions with a smooth, quiet ride. The suspension handles heavy loads and towing well. I am averaging around 13 mpg around town and near 20 mpg on the hwy. Truly a truck that rides like a luxury car.
