2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Review

After 6000 miles the drivetrain started clunking loudly any time I drive backwards (in reverse). The clunk does not occur when I shift to reverse but clunks when I accelarate faster than normal. The clunk also occurs frequently when I accelarate hard and then let off the throttle. It sometimes occurs on 1st to 2nd upshifts or downshifts. I can feel the clunk in the floor and passengers ask me about it. This problem takes all of the joy out of owning this new truck. The dealer did the transmission reprogramming which did not correct the problem and they told me that I have to live with the problem. Many other owners are having the same problem.

Best Features

Exterior design.

Worst Features

Fix drivetrain "Clunking", interior rattles from dash, door panels, and headliner. Calibrate the Auto Headlight feature to turn on when it starts getting dark. Fix Key Fob design so the Panic Alarm stops going off all of the time. Upgrade poor sounding stereo and speakers.
