2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 3dr Extended Cab SB


Review

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


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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. "More recalls are needed and Chevy is well aware"<-----statement from a dealership salesperson

Review

I bought this Chevy 2000 in may or so and right away my tranny was shifting odd and seemed to have a slip got a flush and better now but not all there. The knocking is terrible when started when cold and needs to sit higher and needs more leaf springs in it can't haul hardly anything without sagging. Love the power and ride but bad gas mileage. Not trying to complain just saying how the truck is. Great power fun truck just dunno if its the one for me


Best Features

Power and ride


Worst Features

Needs to sit higher and stiffen the rear so I can put a trailer on there. The motor can handle it but suspension cant. The motor knocks when cold and gas mileage

Review

I bought this truck brand new and drove it for ten years. I gave it to my son who now drives it to work. It has almost 200,000 miles and has never had any major repairs. I replace rack and pinion steering at 195,000 miles cost $200.00 that's all, not bad.

Review

I have a 2000 Chevy silverado with 146,000 miles on it. I had a few things go on it. I use this truck to pull a 2 horse bumper pull trailer. Its been good to me. I put in it a rebuild trans had a few things here and there. Now its having a few issues with going in Reverse. If this truck was a 2500 I would keep it. But I live in a hilly area and it struggles with the load to get up the hills. I live Chevy and I like what they offer. This truck been good to me for my needs.


Best Features

Heated seats, push button 4wd,


Worst Features

They should made a Diesel in a half ton, And put a window lock in on the EXT cab models, and more leg room in the back seat..

Review

I bought my 2000 silverado Z-71 in April of 2009.It had 106,000 on the odometer.It has been a very good truck so far.Gets great gas mileage,very comfortable,great performance,great ride,handles very nice.The body is in perfect shape for the age and miles,interior is spotless,under the hood is very clean.It gets driven every day,30 miles one way to work.Just changed the fuel pressure regulator,only cost $50 and easy to do myself.NO squeaks or rattles inside.Now i have 121,000 on the odometer,and still going strong!!


Best Features

Very comfortable,love the performance.


Worst Features

The trailer hitch receiver is the most flimsy thing i ever seen i dint trust it at all,so i replaced it.Needs an extra leaf spring in the rear,my trailer makes the rear springs almost bottom out!!Piston slap on cold starts is very annoying though.
