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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

Just enough truck to do any job.


Suggested Improvements

Putting a 2 to 4 inch lift would look real good.

2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab LT 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

Pros: this is a very dependable truck. the 5.3L that i have in my Z71 is bulletproof compared to the Prone to head gasket repair 5.7L. The powertrain is a good 4 speed trans with a single stage torque converter, it shifts smooth and in tow/haul mode very strong and fast like you want it. The interior has plenty of room for an extended cab and the ebony leather is a nice luxury touch. For a half ton pickup its a great strong ride that's stiff like you want a pickup but softer than the other halftons for its time. I'm definitely sold on the Z71 silverados, my wife wants one for her next vehicle so it looks like shes sold on it too.


Favorite Features

Very strong 5.3L vortec V8, transmission is solid. Love the autolocking rear differential. Body actually has curves as apposed to the old K-body.


Suggested Improvements

Cons: The emergency brake is a joke, i can engage it all the way down and i can push the truck forward and back by myself.

Review

I purchased this truck new, and have put 100,000 miles on it. Never stranded or stuck, no mechanical problems at all. Simple routine maintenance. Great hauler/tower. Survived head on mule deer accident, backed into tree, hit a rottweiler, and was in a garage destroyed by tornado. Nothing but a few scratches. Cons: Funny wear on front tires (inside wear), a/c sometimes weakens on long hot roadtrips, long wheel base decreases offroad ability due to long turning radius and high center potential, spartan cab comfort features on the base model.


Favorite Features

4wd, Large bed, towing capacity, large fuel tank, surprising fuel effiecient, reliability


Suggested Improvements

All in all perfect for me.
