It's been great so far
By H2YAMYK on
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.
