2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Three years later and its still going strong. No diminished qualities. The only repair outside of standard oil changes has been the steering column bearing and the A/C diverter actuator. No big deal either time. The warranty covered it all. Nice riding vehicle. All two-wheel- drive Chevys historically have the porpoising front ends on hilly/bumpy roads, this one is no different. But, I bought a truck not an El Dorado.
XM standard, rear end gearing, rear seat entertainment system, good sight lines.
More durable seat fabric, especially on the edges near the doors.
love my truck even with a 32 in. tire I'm getting almost 18 miles to the gal. bought it with 108 thousand miles on it and its still strong. there are a few things that do kinda bug me though i have no tach it just doesn't work and the speedometer works when it feels like it and the lights work sometimes off and on mainly running lights and the rear windows roll up and down by themselves.
body style and durability though I'm not a fan of torsion bars I'm warming up to the idea they are not bad the auto 4 wheel drive button
if you don't like the rake of the truck buy the 2.5 in. torsion keys, it's around 80 bucks with that tires 285s will fit with no offset rims no lift just the 2.5 keys and you have no rubbing even off road and they fill the fender wells nicely
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
1. It's a Chevy.
2. XM Bose sound system.
3. Heated seats
4. Driver Info center
5. Power folding mirrors with curb
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
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.
