Review of the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

  • 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.

  • Safety

    Roomy extended cab models, strong V8 engines, available composite bed, disc brakes at all four corners, optional traction control.

Love this z-71

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab LS 4WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)

This is my third Chevy/GMC truck since 1997, but my first 4WD. I have had great luck with this one. NO problems at all. These trucks continue to impress me. The only ting that I think could have been improved is the grill design and they took care of that starting with the 2003 models. Great truck.




A great truck

Very happy with this truck. Very quiet and great ride. Minor problem with front suspension fixed under warranty. Not happy with factory Firestone tires.

Bought my '02 Silverado reg. cab SB, 4800 engine in November. I was skeptical about the quality but have been completely satisfied. Tight, no wind noise, everything works well. Love the CD player/radio. After 4,000 miles, it's been perfect. Doesn't handle as well as my last two trucks (Ford Broncos), but the engine is responsive and strong. Wish it didn't come with Firestone Wilderness AT's. Styling is smart, not overly done like the grotesque Dodge Ram.
