2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab SS AWD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Love this truck. It gives the feel and capability of a truck but the look of a high performance vehicle so head turning is always happening. It's a good professional looking business vehicle that you can throw your Harley in as well. Always getting compliments!


Best Features

Heated seats, backup mirrors, XM, 20's, power


Worst Features

Driver entery seat sometimes doesn't go where it's supposed to. Slow speed turning is bad. Have fun on 3pt. turns. Gas mileage, but I didnt buy it for that anyway.

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


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.


Best Features

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


Worst Features

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

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab SS AWD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have had my truck since May 2003. I haven't had any problems except the throttle body had to be cleaned under warranty and the intermediate steering shaft had to be fixed under warranty. Otherwise this truck has been very fun and useful and totally reliable. I plan to keep it a long time! Gas consumption surprisingly good!


Best Features

I like the 385 zlbs of torque. Good auto-climate control, comfortable seats, good paint, good build quality, seat heaters, good truck, looks good, no problems towing anything.


Worst Features

19 way BMW seats. Stock stereo a little lacking bass and features. Ride a little bumpy on certain freeway spots. Center front seat needed, power windows slow,

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


Review

The problems on this Silverado are numerous. The biggest are the brakes. You need to push the pedal to the floor in order to get the truck to stop and sometimes that doesn't do it. In less than 30,000 miles I have had the steering column greased, then replaced. Heater replaced, and power window motor replaced. These are annoying, but the brakes are dangerous.


Best Features

Exterior looks pretty good, and it gets decent mpg for a truck


Worst Features

Fix the braakes.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS Rwd SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

I've had only one minor problem with my truck, more of a nuisance actually. The steering shaft's tenon-and-spline compression joint requires additional grease packing to minimize some minor knocking noises on bumpy roads. Overall, a solid, reliable vehicle.


Best Features

Very comfortable cab, great ride for a truck.


Worst Features

I wish the headrest came up more. I'm a tall driver.
