1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab SB

Review

Liked the truck initially, but problems plagued me all the time. The power window switch went bad, so they had to replace the entire "modularized" motor and all ($150). Then the 2WD HI/LOW/4WD "modularized" button panel on the dash went out ($200). Then the anti-lock brake actuator/controller (another $1200). Seven separate times now the drive shaft splines have had to be deburred, and the rear seals of the transfer case have had to be replaced. Took it in for tune-up last week to find out that the fuel pump is leaking fuel back into the pump (hard starting)--module needs to be replaced ($400). Also the gear shift lever is really loose--that "module" also needs replacing ($700).

Favorite Features

Good gas mileage. Carries a fully loaded bed very well. Climate control inside the cab works very well and keeps the temperature well regulated. The leather seats are easy to maintain and wear well.

Suggested Improvements

Find the engineer who though up the idea of "modularizing" (read: cash cow) and promote him to CEO of Chevrolet--it's time for this "genius" to bring his kind of thinking to the boardroom and the stockholders !
