Should have got the V8
By Craig Biggio on

Vehicle

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)

Review

New Silverado LT1 ext. cab with 4.3 V6. Great upgrade on the grille from the older models, interior very sleek, not too fancy, just "domestic". Overall satisfied with the truck except for the fact that there is a vibration in my exhaust. Feels like a strain on the motor, happens at low speeds and accelerations. Dealer mechanic said it's not a problem, and common on all 4.3 v6's. But its annoying as heck. Especially annoying that he mentioned the V8 never has this problem. Nothing he can do about it. So its something I have to live with. Great truck, would be perfect with a nice "quiet" v6. Want to save on the gas? My advice would be to try the hybrid, just dont get the V6.

Favorite Features

New grill design, steering wheel controls, and "power" mirrors (auto dimming driver, power fold etc.)

Suggested Improvements

Find a remedy for the vibration on the V6, and add more standard features. How about a mirror on the driver visor?
