1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab SB
Purchasing Sivlerado new was a very smart move for me. At the time I'm writing this I have 185,000 miles on the thing. I'm on my third set of rear break pads, I replaced the fronts at 173,000 miles. The only currrent issue is a very small amount of surface rust on the rocker panels (rust is expected in Michigan). I've got the 4.8 liter, it just keeps running and getting around 18MPG(average). I had to replace the drivers window motor at 39,000 miles, the instrument cluster and drive shaft replacement were both warrenty work.
Driveability. This thing just drives nice.
GM should not offer the 4.8 liter V8 with a 3.42 gear in the rear end. The 3.73 should be as low as you can go.
