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


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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

XM standard, rear end gearing, rear seat entertainment system, good sight lines.


Suggested Improvements

More durable seat fabric, especially on the edges near the doors.

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


Review

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.


Favorite Features

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


Suggested Improvements

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

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.


Favorite 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


Suggested Improvements

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.
