my grandpa bought his 02 for 3,100 bucks couple years ago since then it has had no issues at all still runs great only thing it does burn alittle bit but not to much have to say this truck is really fun to drive only thing that i would say is the ride quality could be improved a bit kinda bouncy
After about 5 weeks I took this baby for a 1500 mi. trip. Then a few months later I hooked a heavy double axle horse trailer loaded with a refrigerator and entire churchful of people's belongings and hauled them on my bumper hitch and pulled them with my Vortec-V6 on a 600 miles round trip. I drove 80 mph with the max AC blowing full blast down the interstate. Other than oil changes every 7k miles or so I have not had to do anything to this truck. At 95,000 miles I swear the brakes or belt would need replaced, but it keeps on keep'n on. Not to mention I feel completly safe in my truck!
The classic bodystyle, the charcoal paint. Auto headlamp (night & daytime). Power with good gas mileage. My 26 gallon tank will get me almost 500 miles even though I have a lead foot.
Although smooth and quiet is good, a pick-up is supposed to sound tough. If the Rams can make theirs sound mean, why can't they make the Silverado sound like the Camaro?
My truck is just ok. Nothing
spectacular. However, the most serious
problem with this vehicle is that there
is an air-conditioner solid tube that
is routed directly over the
distributer, cap and rotor. Every six
to ten months, the continuous water
dripping onto the distributer corrodes
the internal electronics and the
vehicle is subject to unexpected
stalling without the possibility of
restarting. This vehicle is very
dangerous, yet Chevrolet refuses to
admit this design flaw to date. I have
a lemon law case file in progress and
notifying local news sources in an
effort to save other people from this
Great new features. I purchased the V6
instead of the V8 due to fuel economy.
The V6 has power and does not jolt when
using Octane 92-94 during fast
accelleration. The manual recommends
87 octanes. I have had a little jolt in
the transmission when rapid
accellaration with 87 octane.
The body has double side galvanized
steel so you don't have to worry about
nicks and rust.
Overall, I feel my Silverado was a
great buy that will hold its value for
years when compared to other
manufactuers - QUALITY and RELIABLE.
The truck rides more like a car than it
past year models I have test drove.
Would like a rubber molded bed liner
that comes standard so do not have to
worry about nick and chips to the bed
during normal use. A little more room
in the standard cab for cargo behind
the seat and to tilt the seat back
