2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab Z71 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Have had the truck at the dealership for a total of 15 days. We are on the 3rd steering shaft; it drives like a golf cart. Makes a popping noise when turning but only if it's over 70 degrees outside. Steering wheel squeaks when the turn signal is on.


Best Features

Love the OnStar and sattelite radio.


Worst Features

Change the steering to a rack and pinion.

Review

I would never buy another truck unless it's GM quality. Nothing compares to the Chevy Silverado Z71. Ford, Dodge, Toyota, Nissan, and Honda should all just give up and find another market.


Best Features

Power, power, power, power. Oh, did I mention beauty and comfort?


Worst Features

Something other than those terrible Bridgestone tires that come with it.

Review

This truck can fly off the line (for a truck) and haul anything you throw at it. The ride is smooth, aslong as you dont change the suspension. If you add a Power Chip it boost the power along with alittle more gas mileage. Along with the right kinda of tires, the 4x4 will get you out of most problems. The protection the engine and electrical parts have from water and mud is great. I went through 4ft of water(factory height) without any problems afterward, except alittle water in the cab...no biggy. Careful with the CD player tho, if a cd is in when you start up, it may not play, youll have to take it out then reinsert.


Best Features

Smooth Ride, Pulling power(even without the chip). Rear seating, alot more room than Fords or Dodges CrewCabs, even with the front seats all the way back. Im 6'6 and had plenty of room.


Worst Features

Front end, the 01 models had a better looking front end. Take away the warning bell when the door is open, I hate that thing.

Review

As a former Ford owner, I am a little disappointed. My Z71 has already been in the shop for over a week with misfiring issues in three seperate cylinders. Chevy has repaired, although they didn't give me a good explaination of what caused the problems. I LOVE the truck (ride, styling, 18MPG+, Power), but the reliability is clouding my mind. Only time will tell...

Reliability - possible issues...

Review

I'm a Chevyman. I didn't look at other trucks. Got a great deal as a result of an agreement between my employer and GM. $2500 under invoice, plus rebates, plus 1.9% financing. It drives great, lots of power, rides better than the reviews lead me to believe. I get 17.5 MPH combo driving and 20+ on the highway. Only mod is a K&N filter. Bose sound system sounds awesome and the XM puts it through the paces.


Best Features

1. It's a Chevy. 2. XM Bose sound system. 3. Heated seats 4. Driver Info center 5. Power folding mirrors with curb assist. 6. 4 Real Doors 7. Rear Audio Controls 8. Auto Climate Control 9. 6 Quarts + of Oil in the engine 10. Fold down rear seats


Worst Features

Put some BF Goodrich AT TK/Os on the thing out of the box. The Brigstones from the factory are terrible in the snow, mud, and on wet pavement. A spray in bedliner from the factory would be cool too.
