1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab SB


I have had this truck for 5 years on a lease that is about to expire, and I am glad I am getting rid of it, as I feel were I to keep it I would be on the verge of spending a LOT of money in service. Good looking vehicle but beauty is only skin deep in this case. As others have noted, the gas pedal sticks (repeated "fixes" have not fixed it), and the truck has had cooling system problems (water pump replaced at 50,000 mi.) OE tires were nearly bald after 28,000, and the power window motors both had to be replaced. In short, it's a typical American car - shot at about 75,000 miles. I am going back into Japanese models.

Best Features

For a vehicle this size, I must give kudos to the gas mileage. I have consistently averaged nearly 16 mpg with the small V8.

Worst Features

Increase the mecahnical reliability and especially longevity - I feel sorry for the next person who owns this vehicle.
