2000 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Regular Cab LS 2dr Regular Cab LB
I bought this truck new and for the first 125000 miles I didn't do a thing to it except replace a cracked exhaust manifold (at 650000) and change the oil. I have 155000 on it now and in the last six months I have pretty much given it a complete overhaul. Everything broke at once. Granted I'm not the best with maintenance and it all just caught up with me. Now with a complete new brake system, alternator, starter, the other manifold,and a tune up, I hope to get at least another 100000 miles out of it. The biggest complaint is the ABS. Even after the recall they still don't work right. Quick fix is to pull the fuse. I hope for a few more years out of it and would definitely buy another Chevy.
Auto 4x4 button is great for plowing when driving with the plow up so you don't spin your tires pulling out of intersections. Tows my construction trailer or another car like it's not even there. Just remember if you need a silverado 2500 you have more important things to worry about then gas cost
Cup holder was a horrible design, they changed this in the 01 model... How stupid can you be to lay the brake lines right on top of the frame, of course they are going to rot out there first... Why would you run the transmission lines right in the way of the starter bolts? Common sense people!

Have owned only Chevy trucks since
1972. This is the last one. Truck was
great until it lost the oil pump at
about 20,000 miles. No big deal there.
At 25,000 it started to knock when it
was first started up. Actual problem is
the infamous 'piston slap problem'.
Dealer (Sir Walter Chevy in Raleigh)
wouldn't even look at it. They gave me
TSB #01-06-01-028 that basically said
it wasn't a problem and sent me on my
way. Now at 29,000 miles it lasts for 5
minutes on startup. Had to search the
internet to find out there was a
extended warranty on the motor for
free. Meanwhile no one will buy the
piece of junk from me because of the
problem. It's Dodge hemi time.
Nice LS package.Nice looking truck.
Should be able to get the leather
interior, nd fix the darn engine
