1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab LT 3dr Extended Cab SB


Review

I purchased this truck new in 1999, trading in a 1997 Monte Carlo.
The truck has been reliable and comfortable for over 165,000 miles.
Within the last month the gear selector and mileage indicator LED failed.
Repair requires replacement of the entire gauge assembly. Early on I had to have the ABS manifold replaced, under warranty.
Since then, starter at 158,000, drivers window electric motor at 156,000, and I had the front end rebuilt at 159,000.
I replaced the orginal rear shocks within the last two weeks (Jan 11).
There was no leakage, but rear end bouce was noticeable.


Best Features

I've used this truck for towing, cargo hauling and for use in carrying firewood, rocks and sand. Always performs well. Fuel mileage is excellent at 15mpg local and up to 22mpg on the interstate. Only modifications are a K&N air filter and modified exhaust system. The tow/haul mode is a good feature. I find dropping into 3rd gear from overdrive provides better acceleration at high speed. In heavy traffic, the increase in RPM provides better throttle response in traffic.


Worst Features

Fog lights should not have an override with high beams. An option for an in-bed spare tire mounting location would be good. It would be nice if Chevy had provided for piece part replacement of gauges and LED components, vice having to replace the entire instument gauge module. ($400+ dollars) Rear seat reading lamps would be good.

Review

This 7 year old truck has electrical problems in dash. Unable to view gear shifter, odometer, already replaced once. Also, gas guage went belly up at 6 years. Still love the truck. Good ride, good mileage, good towing, never broke down, good looking. Light in the backend, have to use sandbags.


Best Features

The way it feels and rides like a car, but is strong and fast.


Worst Features

I would like a fourth door, and not the suicide style

Review

This is my first Chevrolet and first
truck. The vehicle has been expensive
and troublesome. I really like the
car, but don't know that I'd buy
another, at least not another Chevy.\

Door and seats have needed rebuilding,
the brake control systems have required
$1600 in repairs in the last 17 months,
and the dealer has often needed
multiple tries to fix things.


Worst Features

Chevrolet needs to get their quality up to snuff. Reading reviews leads me to suspect later years may be a bit better. I certainly hope so!
