2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
All of the obvious plastic on the
inside of the truck make the interior
look cheap. You can hear plastic bits
rubbing together when you roll down
the road, especially coming from the
extend cab area.
The declo CD/tape deck that came with
this LT trimmed truck are pure junk.
The only upside were the big easy to
The only better looking truck is on
the road is the GMC Denali.
The four wheel steering option must be
nice. The turning radious on the
extended cab is pretty wide
Gas mileage is good in the 4.8 liter,
and the ride is comfortable. Overall,
this is a great truck.
* Sharp looking truck.
* 4.8 liter gets good milage compared
to other similar trucks.
* Smooth ride compared to other trucks.
* Nice looking wheels.
* AC Declo Stereo is not worth its
weight in sand.
* Plastic interior looks cheap.
* Bed rails are flimsy. They should be
more sturdy or come standard with rail
* Suicide doors are inconvenient in
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
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
Power, Comfort and ride. I get many
comments on how good the ride is for a
4WD. Rides a good bit better than my
last 2WD if you can believe that.
Not into the overstyling of the Ford
or Dodge. Like the Toyota but the
Chevy had the biggest ext cab. Very
impressed with the heated leather and
the controls. Plenty of power with the
5.3 and I would worry about the tranny
if it had more power. The limited slip
comes with LT's but I wouldn't get any
P/up without it. Too much power to the
rear and it would be worthless in the
rain. Awesome with the limited slip.
Interior design and size. Perfect.
Better fog lights. Cupholders in the
rear that aren't in the door. Your
child leaves his soda in the cupholder
and gets out. What do you think
happens when they slam the door????
