Great Truck Overall
By labguy on
2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB
I have towed and hauled heavily with this truck and have had no major problems. The only problems I have had is the driver side window motor needed to be replaced after about 4 years and the fuel gauge dances around due to a bad sending unit which I have not replaced. Gas mileage is average for a truck this size. I'd have to say that I amd very satisfied with the truck overall. It has so far been very reliable. Just replaced the original tires at 77,000 miles. I haven't notice any noise or squeaks in the interior as some have noted. Did have a squeaky powersteering belt but that has been fixed.
4 wheel drive comes in handy when hauling my boat up steep wet boat ramps. Love the fold-up rear seat when I need some extra hauling space. Also like the speed adjusted radio volume. Room in the rear seat for kids or adults.
Fuel sending unit needs improvement. It should have been recalled.
