2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab 4WD LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I have always wanted to own a truck. Now that I'm retired, I finally have one and I love it. I use it to pull a pop-up camper that I used to pull with my wife's Trailblazer. Although the Trailblazer did good, the Silverado is excellent! You don't even know it's there. The only problem I have is my wife wants to drive it all the time (her Trailblazer is an '02 LTZ with all the goodies)! The mileage is not great but is better than I expected, even when pulling the pop-up. If the cost of repairs matches the Trailblazer, I will be happy.

Best Features

I have the trailer towing package and was very impressed with how little I had to add (trailer brake controller,which "plugs in", and a hitch) to get rv'ing. The trailer tow selector on the transmission is very impressive. I am also amazed at the use of computers in vehicles today.

Worst Features

At this time, the only improvement I would like to see would be a switch selector for the 4WD (like the Trailblazer has) instead of the lever on the floor.
