2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab Work Truck Rwd LB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Should have gone with anyone but GM. Typical of the brand, speedometer doesn't work and no recall, service air bags notification on, needs third windshield, passenger door doesn't shut right, on third thermostat(non dealer this time), transmission slips but rarely, dealer tires didn't last any time at all. Little interior storage, glovebox doesn't hold much, will have to replace center seat with console storage. Good on gas mileage but V6 underpowered, computer wonky sometimes. Never been contacted about recall items.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage, full sized bed, Climate control, squeaky pop sound from transmission.


Suggested Improvements

longer seatbelts, driver controlled airbag switch, standard center seat storage, better front springs, needs positraction of some kind, needs better tow points on rear, needs more tie down points in bed, better drainage of pickup bed, better scratch resistant paint in bed.

Review

Best truck I have ever owned! Biggest guts for a 6cyl. I have driven! Only flaw is hates snow! This truck would get stuck in flurries. Does great in rain and corners like a bike, almost. But snow is not our friend we are finding out!


Favorite Features

Easy to work on, a lot of room under the hood and behind the seat.


Suggested Improvements

Chevy could do a little better with the engineering of the interior as a whole. Other than the gauges.

Review

Great MPG in a full size truck. At 76000 miles a proven winner. Too bad Chevy didn't think to make a 2008 stick version.


Favorite Features

25 MPG highway


Suggested Improvements

None

Review

This is the best truck I've ever owned (out of 10 Chevys) V6 with the 5 speed gets 24-25 MPG on the freeway. A few minor things went wrong- all fixed by the dealer. Truck has nearly 70000 miles now- runs like new and looks new. Still running on the original tires and brakes, all still good.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage is unbelievable for a full size truck. Ride and interior comfort is great. Still a tight truck at 70k miles.


Suggested Improvements

Put a manual trans in the new ones. The 07 and 08 V6 models with the automatic are gas hogs compared to this model.
