Chevrolet makes a pretty good pick-'em-up if powerful engines are your thing. But it has a ways to go to match the Ford F-150 and Toyota Tundra when it comes to the quality of the materials and assembly.

Bought a 2002 Chevy Silverado in 2004.
It had 39,000 miles on it.
I was a bit nervous I was paying too much but I was betting the engine would
make my deal a sweet one.
I've got a bit over 230,00 miles on it now.
It'll be ten years ago this fall I bought it. NEVER had an issue. NOT one.
Had to have the fuel injection-stuff cleaned out at about 185k miles... that kinda sucked but I guess it comes with 'maintenance'.
Look'n for a vehicle for my twin sons. Seems every vehicle I look up, including this truck, someone has had transmission issues.
I felt compelled to write a review on my Chevy. NO ISSUES.
God Bless this TRUCK!!!

This truck is great for any young teenager looking for a first truck. If you want something fun fast with good handling then this is your truck. Sure it may have a little clunk in the transmission buut eh a little issue.

This truck is a joke as far as I am concerned. It has a terrible clunking noise when up shifting into second gear and also down shifting. The dealership has checked this out and I have a document from GM that says this is normal clunking. (Did not clunk into gear when I bought it). Tough to resell now. Also now when cold starting there is clattering going on under the hood. This goes away after a few minutes but again the dealership says this is normal clattering. HMM!! did not clatter when I bought it. I will not buy another GM truck as long as I live.
Only minor changes are made to Chevrolet's bread-and-butter Silverado pickup for 2002. Some options packages have been revamped for easier ordering and all extended-cab models now come standard with a four-speed automatic transmission, with the manual no longer available.
