2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 2WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
Only about 8K on the clock, but no real
problems yet. A few times now, the A/C
blows warm for some reason but it's
rare. There is some valve noise with
this engine that some one else here is
concerned about. I believe it to be
normal. Some engines make more noise
than others. Power is fantastic. Ride is
decent. Pretty bumpy on these L.A.
freeways, but the towing/hauling
capacity beats Fords flat out. I
compared to F250 and this 1500HD is
superior in just about every way in
terms of utility. Comparing this truck
to the F150 4-door was a no brainer -
The F150 5 foot bed was a big deterrent
as I use this truck for motorcycles, etc.
Power is excellent, Interior room - I
bought this truck because of the full
four doors - convenient for baby seats
Gas mileage is worse than I expected,
but for an engine of this size/power,
I'm willing to live with it. The
tailgate handle is a little flimsy.
Locking tailgate would be nice too.
