2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)
Owned since new, has 175,000km. Not a single problem ever, only money spent has been on regular maintenance. Has the 4.8 V8 which as a ton of power for this small truck and gets about 12l/100km.
Power, fun to drive, limted slip rear end, reliable.
After about 36000 the transmission
will start slipping and goes out.
The 96 mph governor also puts a damper
on freeway passing
Rim should be 20" standard
Pros: Nice paint (I love the Metallic Blue), Engine!! (4.8L has the power)...I'm sure 5.?L would burn up tires. Decently designed interior. Stereo is adequate.
Cons: Poor build quality with noises in dash and electrical problem right off of the lot! Reliability ratings are poor at best from my readings but my experience has been okay so far.
I would recommend the truck for the love of driving a powerful Chevy truck that looks nice...don't buy it for a long-term owner...
Improve build quality and dealer service--both are lacking
