2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LT 4WD SB w/out OnStar (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Review
I purchased an '01 LT Ext. Cab SB Z71 new in May of '01, just prior to the intro of OnStar as std. on the LT trim. It's style, size, and feel are "just right" to me when compared to the '01 Ram and '01 Ford. There are a few squeaks over bumps when it's cold (50F or below), but nothing out of the ordinary. Plenty of power from the 5.3L, but you need to bury your foot to find it. Blame the over- conservative tranny programming GM provides and get something like the Hypertech PowerProgrammer to "fix" it. Great in snow, but the ABS is a little too sensitive. Either add weight to the bed (300lbs or so) or see if a dealer will adjust it.
Favorite Features
Rear defroster and heated seats! Power everything a plus in a full- size. Lots of room.
Suggested Improvements
Power seat memory should also "remember" exterior mirror position, and the lumbar support should be more configurable. Over- sensitive ABS needs to be adjusted.
