2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LT 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Overall a very nice truck. It does
what I need it too, it is very
comfortable and the ride is
excellent. Even the fuel economy is
good.


Best Features

Four doors, a great engine, and the infinitly adjustable power heated leather bucket seats.


Worst Features

Put the controls for the seat heaters somewhere else. I keep hitting them when I lower or raise the windows. Improve the defrost/defog function. In snow and cold weather, the wipers clog up quickly and the windows fog up even with defroster on max.

Review

I have had this truck for a little over
10 months so far and I absolutely love
it. I have 16000 miles on it and have
had no problems whatsoever. I love the
sharp new front end and rear tail light
design! I like the Vortec 5.3 but it
seems like it needs a little boost in
horsepower, it doesn't seem like 285, i
think it should be around 300 or so.
Gass mileage isn't the best i get about
300-400 miles every time i fill up.
Also, the interior electronics seem out
of date and need updating, but those
are minor improvements. So far, the
best vehicle i have ever driven!


Best Features

BOSE speakers, they really put out for a factory speaker. ample hp from 5.3L engine, great looks and a very quiet and comfortable ride.


Worst Features

Needs more horsepower and better interior quality like radio, knobs and levers. Don't like factory tires. Improve gas mileage.

Review

After owning both a Ford, and Dodge
(the worst)truck. This Silverado is a
pleasure to drive. My wife calls it
the "Lexus with a bed." I had a problem
early on with the 4WD warning message
appearing. After GM said that they had
no fix. They finally determined that it
was a faulty Encoder Motor. They
changed it and it's been fine since.
That has been my only issue. It's been
very reliable. I find the interior
materials much improved over former GM
products. I would certainly recommend
this truck to anyone. It rides and
handles great. Very comfortable. 5.3L
Engine has plenty of power, and yet gas
mileage at 16.5/19 on average. Great
for a large truck.


Best Features

Power/Heated Seats; Audio controls on the steering wheel; Message Center; 6 CD changer; Full back seat w/head rests for the kids; Added spray-on "Line-X" Bedliner, by far the best out there. Has made all the difference.


Worst Features

Not crazy about the new headlights appearance. Blind spot on sideview mirrors on inside lower corners. Makes it more difficult when backing up. Would prefer Cruise control on steering wheel, not on wand like my '84 Blazer. Perfect otherwise!!

Review

Like the power of the 4.8 but I
probably should have gone with the 3.73
axle ratio instead of 3.42 for a little
better acceleration/pulling power.
Barely getting 15.5 to 16mpg in mostly
city driving. Overall very happy with
this truck so far...like the smooth
strong power and roominess. Ride is a
little spongy but comfortable and
quiet...looking to upgrade suspension
for appearance/performance.


Best Features

Smooth powerful V8


Worst Features

A little more ground clearance
