2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

leather interior has the worst seats
in the world, most uncomfortable to
sit in. The rest of the truck is
great. Not impressed with onstar and
let it go. Fades in and out of service.


Best Features

Good sound system, like the temp in the mirror, rear window defog and mirror defog a plus.


Worst Features

Got to be the seats!

After about 36000 the transmission

on freeway passing

Review

DRIVE TRAIN, NOICE AND TRANSMISSION
UNSATISFACTORY, DEALER AND FACTORY
UNABLE TO FIX, MADE EXUSES THAT THE
BANGING AND METALLIC NOISES ARE NORMAL.
FUNNY, FORD HAS A TIGHT TRANNY AND 4X4
LINKUP.


Best Features

SMOOTH RIDE, QUIET INTERIOR


Worst Features

SEATS SHOULD BE REDESIGED TO ACCOMPDATE SMALLER PEOPLE, BETTER INSULATION FOR COLD WEATHER PARTS OF THE COUNTRY, BETTER ENGINEERED TRANNY AND 4X4 DRIVE CONNECTIONS THAT ELIMINATE SLAPPING AND CLANKING BOTH WHEN IN AND OUT OF USE.

Review

Overall liked the truck and held up
well, with the exception of the
engine. At 16,500 it began knocking on
start-up and got worse the next few
months. I took it to the dealer
because I obviously needed a new
motor! Well to my surprise the dealer
says "they all do that, that is
normal" A day of research on the
internet, and a couple sleepless
nights, I traded it in to a wholesaler
before the end of the week. I take
very good care of my trucks and expect
them to look/act/rune like new, and
hold there resale value, but with a gas
engine that sounded like a diesel, this
one had to go. I bought a Ford.


Best Features

Buckets, console, AutoTrac 4x4


Worst Features

Engines should not knock at 20 months, and 16,500 miles, my 1975 GM with 120,000 was quieter than this truck! GM you have a problem, stand-up and fix it, I would be willing to buy another.
