i recently just purchased a 2000 chevy silverado 1500 4x4. the truck has over 270,000 miles and is still running strong. i bought this vehicle as my first vehicle and i would trade it for anything. i pull a 22 foot trailer with it almost everyday for work and it doesn't even hesitate. i only paid 1800 for the truck and all ive done to it was a wheel bearing and a alternator. i plan on buying a lift very soon and rebuilding the motor to put a cam in it.

I was very excited to purchase a truck that was suppose to be reliable and tough. True story....within 5 minutes of leaving the lot the gas probe was faulty, the driver side power window regulator cable snapped, and the glove compartment fell right off the dashboard when opened. It was test drove by the way. I called and in typical American dealership fashion, "sorry all sales are final"......I was thinking more of "wow really, we'll see what we can do since you just spent 1,000's of dollars with us". It's completely turned me off to American cars/trucks in general now because of the terrible service I received. I now have to replace the transmission, only 90K miles on it. JUNKY DON'T BUY
At this point, I'm lucky to have anything work on the vehicle. It blows AC when it wants to, not kidding. Use to be putting my arm out the window when driving till the window decided it wouldn't go down anymore. It looks good in the sunlight, I'm use to that since I can't really drive it currently due to the transmission failing. They are also great at rusting at the rotor assembly, so you know can't change your brakes. You have to use a special torch to remove the rusted back rotors.
Doing your own tune up is like performing surgery. The idiotic jam packed engine makes it hard to get to all the spark plugs. So if you like working on your own truck forget this one, they've made it difficult
Stop making them? Or just back up your product when someone complains of a gas probe or power windows 10 minutes off the lot. Could redesign the whole engine so you can get to routine maintenance things (tune ups).
Could be a bit higher off the ground due to previous reason, too jammed. Gas filter is in a horrible location as well, somewhat hard to change. I've heard several other complaints about the rough shifting which obviously made my transmission go out at only 90 K miles.

Then Boys and girls at Ginn rock!
1 deer assasinated by wife late last
year and repairs were less then
expected. Truck is still sharp, solid
and rattle free. Interior comfort good
for all day and all nighters. Rear
windows whistle if air is on MAX but
not enough to annoy or get fixed.
I love my truck
After driving Toyota Tacoma's for 10
years (Also great trucks) I love the
room and comfort. 12 and 14 year olds
are still comfortable in the back
I purchased my 2000 Silverado new. It
is my second truck (1998 1st one). I
have 4 boys, with the oldest being 6'5"
and another son is 6', 220 lbs.
Neither of them could fit in the back
seat of the 98, but my 2000 has enough
leg room for both to be comfortable in
the back. Rides as well or better than
a car, and with the PSI rear end, I can
go just about anywhere!! I have had
minimal problems (ie power window quit)
and highway mileage is around 18. I
also pull horse trailer, and you don't
even know its back there. When I get
rid of this one, it will be replaced by
another Silverado. Chevy has sold me
Ride is best on the market, and its
styling still turns heads! Power can't
the ultimate work and ride truck is
chevy. It's vortec motor is good as it
gets for a light duty truck. the horses
are there when you need them,and tame
when you dont.the extra door is great
for my kids,tools dog whatever you need
in the back. I've worked my truck hard
rode back and forth too Texas and its
still going strong. You want a truck
you can depend on chevy's siveraldo is
it. thanks James Holman truck owner
