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 SB

I have owned this truck since new and thoroughly regret buying the first year of a new model. Idk if my truck was built on a Friday or what, but it has been trouble laden since new. Fuel pump, ABS module, steering column shaft(never completely cured the rattling tho), seat belts, fuel pressure regulator, all during the factory warranty period. And since the warranty expired, multiple sets of brakes, spider gears in rear diff, no less than six sets of u-joints, transfer case flew apart internally(nobody had ever heard of that problem with this model of course). On the positive side it rides and handles like a car gets decent mileage and literally turns on a dime. Should have waited a few yrs




Not good or bad

Vehicle: 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB

I bought this truck with 73,000 miles on it. It worked fine when I test drove it, but days later everything went downhill. The brakes need to be replaced and the tranny is now slipping and the power steering is OUT




Over 200000 and going strong

Vehicle: 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 2dr Regular Cab LB

I bought this truck used in 2000 with 20,000 miles with the 4.8l and currently have 211,000 miles. Mechanically I have had no problems except for fuel pump 1200 dollars to fix 145,000 miles. And sun shell in transmission breaking at 180,000 miles. Engine still running strong and still getting 18-19 mpg. Not fond of the shaky drive which I had since day one, dealer said there was no problem. Still waiting to do 2nd brake job, great brake life. Not fond of the cheapness of the interior. But I know I can easily get to 300,000 miles. Strong engine.




Poor qualtiy

Vehicle: 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 2dr Regular Cab SB

Liked the truck very much, but entirely too expensive to keep. New transmission ($1500), new antilock brake controller($1000). It appears to me that several failures were coming up. Most expensive vehicle, by far, I have ever owned, bar none. No reason GM can not build reliable vehicles, Toyota can! I drive only Toyota now, and have no plans to ever return to USA brand names!




Chevy z71

Z71 is very aggressive ride, dont dare to use a Z71 Chevy in the city area with a few pot-holes. Don't let anyone 300lbs sit on tailgate. This tailgate is the only weak spot for all Chevy trucks

Very nice, powerful truck, but eats up gas!

Back in the summer of 1998 I test drove a new 1999 Silverado 1500 ext-cab Z-71, and I too would have given that specific vehicle an "avoid" rating. It was not well built, rattled, was all ov...
