Review of the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • Chevrolet makes a pretty good pick-'em-up if powerful engines are your thing. But even after a recent redesign, it still has a ways to go to match the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra when it comes to the quality of the materials and assembly.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Fourth-door access standard on extended cab models, strong 4800 and 5300 V8 engines, programmable power door locks, disc brakes at all four corners.

  • Cons

    Cheap interior materials, sketchy build quality.

  • What's New for 2000

    After a complete redesign last year, few changes make news for 2000. Most substantial is the addition of an optional fourth access door to extended cab models. The already potent Vortec 4800 and 5300 V8 engines make more power, and programmable door locks can be instructed to unlock automatically when the Silverado is shut off. A Sportside cargo box is available on 1500 LT models, and 1500 4WD trucks can be equipped with wheel flares this year. LS and LT trucks get a standard electrochromic self-dimming rearview mirror with compass and exterior temperature display, and a soft tonneau cover is available from the factory.

Nothing like a chevy!!

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB

I love this truck! It is comfortable on the highway, but rough in the play. It may not have the big motors that most come out with now, but I wouldn't trade the 5.3 vortec that I do have, very reliable in all aspects. Now if they would only make every vehicle like a chevy the automotive industry would be at peace. These trucks look mild, but work the heck.




Awsome

Great. Awesome with no major problems, except due to wear and tear of a normal vehicle. It's got loads of power and sounds the best than any other vehicle with exhaust. The best transmission feel that I think i have ever felt. I do not like the new '03-06 trucks due to the front end but I am keeping this truck till she does no more. Couldn't ask for anything better




Best truck

Love this truck,at 48,800 miles, it has been wonderful! Bought new, will keep until it wears out! Traded 1999 Ford F-150 4x4 for this and what an improvement! Just purchased first set of new tires.




It is a truck

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB

Great truck. I own the Z71, No real problems after 75,000. Only been in the shop once for repair. 4WDR console went out after 30,000 and A/C drainage clogged so flooded the baseboards. Tranny clunk when shifting into reverse. Engine runs great and plenty of power while getting about 18mpg. Interior is more comfortable than most cars especially the back seat, after driving the Dodge and Ford this is a caddy. Doesn't have to try and look like a big rig to impress, does all that under the hood.




My dream truck

Vehicle: 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB

This was my very first new truck purchase.I ordered it in dec. 2001and got it in mar.It was exactly what Iwanted and very sharp looking.Had one small problem, it liked oil;and lot's of it.Used 2 qts the first 1200 miles then 1 qt every 1000 miles.The dealership finally changed the pcv and that has stopped the consumption.Also had to have the rear springs replaced.

I've had this truck for almost a year and a half. The following is a list of problems: check 4WD light came on, multiple squeaks and rattles in the center console and dash, driver side seatbelt locked, and it's pulled to either the left or right side since I got it. This truck also has a ticking noise after it's warmed up. Took it to the dealer and was told that's the way the truck was designed. He said something about a exhaust knock. (I DON'T recommend Vandergriff Chevrolet in Arlington)
