2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
I got my truck on Dec 2002. It has had
only one problem, which the dealer said
they've had problems before. The speed
sensor went out and gave me a "Service
4x4" note on the odometer.
For the most part I've used it for city
driving, but I like to snow ski. On
the ice and snow the auto 4x4 handles
excellent. I've gone in 2 feet of snow
and 2 feet of mud. I must say,
shifting it to 4x4 LO makes the truck
jump out of either mud or snow.
Towing, I've not done much, but the
main reason I got a 1500HD is to tow a
possible boat in the future.
4x4, I like the way you can shift
Handling, well it handles extremely
well. I've done from city to 2 feet of
mud and I am impressed. I'm sure it
can handle more, but haven't found a
deep enough trech around where I live.
XM, need I say more. MUSIC!
I know it is designed for HD towing and
loads, but the shifting at times makes
the truck a bit lazy. Especially on
the freeway. I'm sure there is a way
to check if you are towing or not and
make it shift better.
