2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab SS AWD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
I must admit, I took a look at the
Silverado SS and it is a nice looking
truck. It looks mean, has 4WD and has
a bed you can actually use.
After driving it, it just felt like a
more powerful Silverado. This is not a
sport truck. I was actually
considering trading in my Honda Element
for this bad boy....not after driving
it. It drives OK but it's bouncy and
jolting at the same time. If you need
something that will haul a lot and has
a lot of speed, I guess this is a good
choice. But compared to my Honda
Element, it feels cheap and doesn't
handle nearly as good...even if the
Chevy does look and sound meaner.
6.0L Vortec V6
retractable side mirrors
suspension isn't too good. Not a fun
truck unless you're going straight.
Throttle feels strange too. When you
press it down, feels like your foot is
suspended in mid-air. Pedal feels to
loose. Probably just a GM thing.
