2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

74,000 km's and the transmission won't shift gears. I don't tow, I do not beat on it, I take very good care of it and this is how I am repaid. GM needs to put alot more thought into building a reliable truck. My last 2002 silverado was just as big a lemon. And to think I would give Chevy one more chance. I can't wait to see how much this one is going to cost; I'm sure GM will try to get out of the so called warranty.


Worst Features

Rear ends, should be after market. Transmissions should be after market. Oil pumps should be after market.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased this LTZ a month ago and love the smooth ride,interior comfort,feel of the road. Have not pulled my boat yet but it should handle it with ease. Plenty of power. Bose sound system rocks! along with the satellite radio. It takes quite a while to figure out all the buttons and what they control. The driver information system is nice, but unfortunately it shows that the truck doesn't anywhere near the 20 hiway MPG that Chevy and Howie Long brag about!!! Averaging about 15 miles per gallon with 90% hiway driving and feathering the gas pedal.


Best Features

Pretty much everything, design of the 18" wheels is sharp and really dresses up the exterior.


Worst Features

Chevy needs to stop lying and be upfront about the real mileage you can expect.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The best Silverado yet. However, the rear bumper absolutely stinks! I backed into a snow bank. $2,000 damage. Also, when it is below zero the switch to change from 4WD to 2WD doesn't work and vice versa. When cold out I cannot get enough heat while on the road.


Best Features

Nice ride.


Worst Features

Significantly beef up the rear bumper. Put a heater in it. Fix the wind noise from doors.

2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT1 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have really enjoyed owning this truck for a 1 1/2 now. Truck rides very smooth, very comfortable on the highway. White, Z71 Ext Cab Std Box, 5.3. Pulls my 5,000 lb travel trailer no sweat. Only problem I've had with the truck was the battery went out in Oct of 07. Absoloutely love this truck, however two very annoying things. 1 the seats collect a ton of lint! 2nd, the truck sits way to low in the front! Why did GM have to design these trucks with the nose dive. With my 5,000 lb trailer on the back just levels the truck out. You look at the 2wd and the 4wd Silverado's and you can't even see a difference. GM should design these trucks to sit up a bit higher in front. Otherwise very satisfied!


Best Features

Looks great, 5.3 Vortec seems to be a very solid powerful engine. Quiet, strong, and smooth. I'm sure performany would be even better if I had the 6 speed automatic trans but oh well. Interior of the truck is great, very comfortable to drive back and forth to work as well as travel cross country.


Worst Features

The dealer sticker on my truck said 20 MPG highway, this has really been a joke! (try about 17 mpg highway at best!). Seats collect so so much lint (very difficult to keep clean). Also, I wish my Z71 off road 4x4 wasn't so low in the front end! I don't know why GM designed them with the nose dive!

Review

I drive a lot and now have 65,000 mi on vehicle. This is a great truck that I would recommend to anyone. I really feel safe and love the auto 4wd option. I see a lot of snow and ice and this truck is the most sure-footed vehicle I have ever owned. My only complaint is hard elbow rests.


Best Features

Auto 4wd, flex fuel capability, great ride quality


Worst Features

Hard elbow rests, fuel mpg
