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


I bought a 2004 Silverado 1500 Crew Z71 in August. About 900 miles now, so still relatively new. Rides very smooth for a truck, with firm control in curves and turns - no dipping. Truck handles bumps well - no high bouncing or side to side jerking. Acceleration is there when needed, as I drive lightly and very seldom exceed engine speeds over 2500rpm. Fuel mileage averages 18-20 on interstate and 14-16 around town. Options = heavy duty trailering package, power adjustable drivers seat, Chromed Stainless assist steprails. I hit the sale at the right time, as this truck was $10,000 below MSRP, plus I received the exact truck I wanted.

Best Features

Off road package - skid plates, off road shocks, decals, trailer hitch, transmission cooler, 17 inch wheels, locking differential, auto 4wd, heated mirrors, privacy glass, auto dimming rearview mirror with compass/temp settings and 4 REAL DOORS WITH CAB ROOM TO PUT ADULTS IN BACKSEAT

Worst Features

Ship this truck from the factory with a sprayed in bedliner!
