Great truck to buy
By thegerm63 on
2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
This is my 4th chevy truck and I had a chance to get a Dodge for cost and passed it down. I like the Chevy for it reliabilty and comfort and knowing that it has not failed me. I wished they would have kept the folding console instead of the permanent one. love the automatic 4wd option. Wish I would have been told I could have bought it w/o the OnStar. I also was disappointed to have to purchase my own touch up paint should I need it. The engine is strong and the pick up power is superb. I like the room under the hood for working if needed and definetly love the easy oil change w/o the mess. Transmission have always held up strong for me and once warmed up shifting goes very quietly and timely
Steering wheel controls for the radio and info panel.
I have always thought the speed odometer should be moved from behind the steering wheel where it is easily more visable. I also like the seats to recline fully for waiting in the vechicle comfortability. I also would make the middle console moveable up and down. would not waste money on the arm rest
