Vehicle

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

Review

While vehicle was still in warranty I noticed that the vehicle was using oil when cranking. Dealer oil consumption tests showed the engine was using 1 to 2 quarts of oil for every 3 to 4k miles driven. Chevrolet said usage of up to 1 quart of oil per 1000 miles is within spec. They are essentially saying use of three to four quarts of oil between my normal changes is within spec. Chevrolet was not interested in any goodwill deal to repair the deficiency. After purchasing many GM vehicles over the years, I must say I am extremely dissappointed in Chevrolet's lack of customer service and desire to back up their products. That's my last Chevy.

Favorite Features

Good handling in wet conditions. Good performance from 4.8 L v-8. Handles payload well. Interior dash/panel well arranged.

Suggested Improvements

Realistic oil consumption specs. Stand by product by working with consumer to provide necessary repairs. Also, non leather seats should be elevated so driver sits higher.
