Tough, Dependable, Workhorse
By bwat on
1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
Purchased in 2005 with 90k, now over 130k. I have never had a problem beyond standard maintenance with it. Ride height and feel is just right, power is adequate, steering is a little sloppy, but it's a truck not a Porsche. I drive it daily and it sees use both as a driver and a workhorse for my construction business, I average about 15-17mpg loaded in mixed city/hwy conditions. It tows incredably well even with the 4.8L V8 and after being abused by me for two years is running better than when I purchased it.
Best looking truck available when it was new. Interior is still better looking than a lot of options out there.
Only complaint *was* weak tailgate supports. Chevy fixed with a recall last year.
