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


Review

Real bad build quality. The brakes are horrible - expect to replace all rotors and pads especially the back every 20,000 miles. Items replaced under warrenty: Steering column (twice); passenger window motor + track; heater element. Here is what went after warrenty: anti-lock brake sensor (40,000 miles) ~ $250; water pump (48,000 miles) ~ $450; the steering column that was replaced twice is cluncking again. Numerous other defects too small to mention. This truck is literally garbage.


Favorite Features

Decent gas mileage for a 4wd


Suggested Improvements

After 80 years in business, please hire someone who can design brakes.

Review

I am or was a loyal Chevrolet customer. Well i'm sad to say that this truck has changed my mind. I have had multiple problems with it. From tail light to water pump. The quality of my 91' was way better. The worst part of it was when the warrenty ran out ( it had 36200 miles and they wanted to charge me for fixing a problem the hadn't fixed in the past) Chevrolet decided not to stand by their product. Really disapointing, well Toyota here I come.


Favorite Features

It did have a good ride when it was in for repair.


Suggested Improvements

The cup holders need to be reworked.

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


Review

I wanted a full size truck in 2WD that was good on gas and served me well everyday. This has been it. With over 120,000 miles it has given me zero trouble. Passengers comment frequently on it's roomy and comfortable interior - even in the back seat; probably the best bench in the industry. With an average of 18mpg, it's no eco-car, but compared to it's 4WD bretheren, it's awesome. That goes for 4WD mid-size trucks too (at 16mpg). Good looks, solid build, dependable - what more do you want?


Favorite Features

Smooth ride and roomy interior. The folding rear bench allows for huge interior storage space if required. Decent gas mileage for a full size truck.

Review

No maintenance issues. This truck is more comfortable to drive than any of my cars. I towed a trailer with a used car across country and got over 17 miles to the gallon. Most of that trip was on two lane roads and through towns.


Favorite Features

Excellent acceleration. Solid ride and feel. Quiet (no road or air noise). Auto volume on radio works better than others i have heard.


Suggested Improvements

Power windows in the back.

Review

I have had this truck for 4 years and have put 71000 miles on it so far. I have yet to have any major problems with this truck. Also most of the minor problems were covered with in the 36000 mile warranty. The most recent and most annoying problems have been with the electrical system. It seems the truck has developed a short some where that no one can find. It keeps blowing the fuse for the driver seat and passenger window. I also have a tail light and running head light that goes on and off.


Favorite Features

Good power. Much better transmission than the 2000 line. Reliable.


Suggested Improvements

Need to improve electrical system. It really needs better tires from factory.
