2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This was my second Chevy pickup, my first being a '57 stepside. Since that old Chevy, I had evidently been spoiled by a few Fords, two Nissans and a Dodge. No complaints on any of those other pickups, but this Chevy must've been a lemon. Everything from the battery to the temperature control to the transmission gave me trouble in the 9 months that I've had it.


Favorite Features

I was quite fond of the body style. It was a nice looking truck.


Suggested Improvements

Attention to detail in the QC department would be nice!

Review

Have a 2006 1500 Work Truck. The transmission went out at 7,000 miles. The heater blower wiring burned up at 8000 miles and again at 22,000. The exhaust has a vibration at 40 to 45 mph and the dealer said live with it. Another dealer repaired the wiring correctly and is sure he can fix the vibration. This is a 4.3 V-6 and I would say there is a major difference between service departments in Austin Texas.


Favorite Features

Good looks and ride


Suggested Improvements

Improve the low quality build

Review

I love this truck. I drove it off the lot with 7 miles on it. 5000 miles later and not a problem. This truck will go anywhere. I even pulled a 4wd truck out of a mud hole. (after I drove arround him!)


Favorite Features

Simple interior. exterior apeal. Pulling with ease!


Suggested Improvements

Suspension is a little rough when bed is empty, or I don't have the trailer on. However when loaded you could not ask for a better ride.
