Review of the 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD

  • The available Quadrasteer system makes this crew cab one of the best vehicles around for hauling the family, as well as the boat.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Most powerful engine available in a half-ton, can carry six passengers, high tow rating, available four-wheel steering.

  • Cons

    Reduced fuel mileage, spotty build quality.

  • What's New for 2003

    The Silverado gets a makeover this year that includes a new front fascia and revised side moldings and taillights. Up-level LT models get power-folding heated mirrors with puddle lamps and turn signal indicators. On the inside, the Silverado offers new entertainment options, such as a Bose audio system with rear-seat controls, XM Satellite Radio and a DVD-based entertainment system. The instrument panel and center console have been redesigned, and Chevrolet has added new seats, a more comprehensive driver information center and a dual-zone climate control system. For increased safety, Silverados now feature a standard front-passenger-sensing system that deactivates the airbag for children. On the hardware side, the all-new Quadrasteer four-wheel steering system, which increases low-speed maneuverability and towing stability, is now optional. The standard 6.0-liter V8 gets electronic throttle control, as well as the ability to run exclusively on Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) or a mix of CNG and gasoline.

Good, reliable truck. poor fuel

by on
Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Very happy with this truck. It did everything I needed it to do. Had no problems towing anything, and very steady on the road. Felt very safe on the highway. Very reliable. Lots of room in front and back seats. The only issue with this truck was the fuel economy.




Junk truck

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

I've driven Chev trucks since i was 16 and this truck is the biggest piece of junk i have ever had. The front and rear diff's had to be rebuilt twice 75,000 km between rebuilds. It can't keep the transfer case together for longer then 9 months with out stretching the chain. Both exhaust manifolds split making it horribly loud. The truck has 250,000km and is bagged out when guys with super duties are getting 500,000km out of there truck with no where near the repair bills I've had in half the Km's




Best truck on the road

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

I bought this truck from my cousin early in 2007. It had 21,000 miles on it at the time, never towed anything and only had a golf bag put in the box. Since I have owned it I have used it as a work horse. I have had 3,000 pounds in the box and towed a 15,000 pound loaded dump trailer down the road passing fords and dodges all the way. This truck has the tightest steering in it of any vehicle on the road. it feels like it hugs the road. I havent had any problems with it to date.




Best yet!

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

I have owned several trucks from Chevy to Dodge.This truck so far is by far the best over all.The 6.0 is strong enough to pull my 7200 lb. camper with room to pass the other trucks having a hard time to stay the speed limt pulling much smaller campers.Of course you use the gas,but you have the power when you need it! If you're going to play you have to pay! Super truck!




4x4x4 love it!

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

WE use this crew cab to pull our 7000 lb.travel trailer. We only camp in wilderness campsites. The optional four wheel steering has made backing up a breeze. Haven't had a chance to use the four wheel drive yet.

Vehicle: 2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

exceptional towing vehicle, good in snow and slippery conditions, vibration in exhaust system, doesn't like to run cold, once warm it run very well, manf. says to run the rear tires at 80psi but it is very hard and rough, run them at 55 and front at 50, while towing I run the rear at 75 and front at 50, towing switch is sometimes apion unless your towing on hills or steep grades, don't use the switch on normal towning, running with syntheics since 800 miles and it runs smoother
