2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


i bought this vehicle brand new and around 2,000 miles it started to have a loud clunk noise in the transmission when it shifted from 2nd to 3rd gear. it has been progresively getting worse and Chevrolet will not do anything about it. They realize there is a problem with these transmissions. ....when it shifts it is so loud you think the universal joints are going to pop out. They have responded telling me that "it is a mometary reversal of the transmission output Chevy says "even if we replace the transmission we can't guarantee that the next one won't have the same problem. Want a Silverado headache????????

Best Features

my favorite feature i guess is the comfort of the ride in general. it rides like a big car and takes the bumps very well.

Worst Features

Fire the engineers that decided to allow the transmission to momentarily reverse itself.
