2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I just traded mine off after 180k. The only repair I made during the four years was a front spindle. Other than that the truck performed well.


Favorite Features

Ride quality and gas mileage


Suggested Improvements

Different design on the front spindles, a better seal would be great.

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


Review

It's an awesome truck. Smooth ride, great power, great looking. Complaints for chevy clearance are numerous but I haven't experienced it yet. The only thing I don't like is the anti-lock breaks. But that goes for any car I've driven that has them. I pull a 5000# boat without problems.


Favorite Features

Smooth ride, easy to drive and park. Easy to get kids in and out of extra cab.


Suggested Improvements

Anti Lock breaks

Review

Excellent power and great gas mileage!!! Rides like a car but i'm yet to find any load it can't handle!


Favorite Features

I've got the 2 full doors and 2 suicide doors which make this truck as usable as any sedan for loading up my friends and going out! Great backseat room and is the smoothest ride i've ever felt in a full size!


Suggested Improvements

There really isn't anything i'd improve on this truck. The 5.3L V8 has great power yet has gotten me up to 19+ MPG Hwy.

Review

My 2001 Chevrolet truck has been the best truck I have ever owned. I live in Kentucky and use my truck on and around my land, it goes great through mud and snow and has yet to fail me. In my opinion the Z-71 package is the best deal.


Favorite Features

Locking diff. A lot of power. Great style


Suggested Improvements

Better brakes. Better fuel economy.

Review

This is an almost perfect truck. Comfort, handsome design, and a combined mileage 17.5 MPG. Powerful precise steering, automatic transfer case. Almost perfect. The bad, cold start knock (annoying). Weak intermedate steering shaft (replaced). Known for bad fuel guage sending units (hasn`t happened yet). Nothing's perfect and the good more than offsets the bad. Best truck I ever drove. What`s bad, the bad is silly stuff GM should have got right in the first place.


Favorite Features

Automatic 4x4, Good gas mileage for its segment. Handsome looks until 03. Very powerful, comfortable interior. Rides and drives like a car? (Kind of a dislike) I like the stance of a Dodge better but for the long haul Chevy`s car like ride is more livable.


Suggested Improvements

Steering shaft, cold start knock, windshield wiper motor,fuel guage, hot/cold selecter.
