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.
For a vehicle this size, I must give
kudos to the gas mileage. I have
consistently averaged nearly 16 mpg
with the small V8.
Increase the mecahnical reliability and
especially longevity - I feel sorry for
the next person who owns this vehicle.
