2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Chevrolet has no quality in this truck. Intermediate shaft changed 3 times. Gear assembly changed 5 times, power steering pump changed twice. Front end sounds like it is getting ready to fall off. Tires had to replaced at 15,000 miles due to terrible front end.


Favorite Features

Interior is great. Bose stereo system and controls on steering wheel are great.


Suggested Improvements

Front end need a total overhaul.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab SS Rwd SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I've driven Chevy trucks all my life, and this one has got to be by far the best. Nice power and exceptional ride comfort from a truck are my top requirements, and this truck fills the bill nicely. After punishing this truck on the Million Dollar Highway, I rode away with a huge smile on my face. The tires stick like glue on wet/dry pavement and can easily climb any mountain with gobs of power to spare. Can tow 8,000 pounds with ease. While it may not be the absolute fastest truck, it is fast, it rides extremely well, is versatile, and will leave you with a great feeling.


Favorite Features

Incredible handling, very comfortable ride, roomy, powerful, and head- turning good looks. Versatile: this truck has it all.


Suggested Improvements

Lower it 2 more inches, increase power even more, and HID headlights.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab Z71 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Vehicle is very comfortable on long and short trips. 4X4 has gotten me through off road terrain as well as some fairly deep snow! Family feels very safe in this truck!


Favorite Features

Like the fold-in outside rear view mirrors, temp and direction on inside rear view mirror, and engine power with good mileage for full size truck.


Suggested Improvements

Need to go back to 4 wheel disc brakesand windshield wipers that pull up out of the way or glass cleaning!

Review

What an incredible truck. It has been up to the task at everything I given it. The interior is awesome, and the Bose sound system rocks. XM is a plus. My only complaint is the poor MPG, but considering what it is, I wasn't expecting to get econo-car mpg. The 5.3l V-8 is plenty powerful, and the trans shifts very smooth. All in all, I am very happy with it, and when the lease is up, I will probably purchase it. My only real complaint is the price. $38k for a truck is ridiculous.


Favorite Features

Engine, crew cab, Bose stereo, looks and performance.


Suggested Improvements

Price, price, price. Very pricey.

Review

I love this truck. I have a 10 year plan for it. I push snow with it, pull a heavy trailer, and carry the family around. Can't get any better than this.


Favorite Features

Snow pushing power


Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage
