2000 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 Extended Cab HD LT 3dr Extended Cab 4WD LB


Review

I love the performance and the capabilities of my truck. I have hauled a yard of damp sand and gravel mix, with 8-94# bags of cement in my bed and I have had no problems. The suspension is incredible, and the brakes are awesome!


Favorite Features

Design, Engine and suspension, Brakes, 4 doors on an extended cab truck.


Suggested Improvements

A little better sitting angle for the back seat. As it is, the seat back is just a bit too straight up, a bit more of a reclined angle would be more comfortable.

Review

I bought this truck used with 35K miles; it now has 66K miles. It is the heavy-duty version of the 2500 that was replaced by the 2500HD in 2001. This truck has been entirely dependable with no major mechanical problems. The 6.0L engine is smooth with plenty of power. No oil needs to be added between changes. The ride is quiet and comfortable (for a big truck), loaded and unloaded. The auto four-wheel drive option, which allows the transfer case to slip, is great for slick pavement. I have been very satisfied, and expect to keep this truck to 100K miles or more.


Favorite Features

Reliability; large payload and towing capacity; auto four-wheel drive; comfortable and roomy interior; automatic headlights.


Suggested Improvements

Turning radius is huge due to long wheelbase; antilock brakes seem to kick in pretty quickly.

Review

Over four years now & 238,000 miles. I couldn't ask for a more reliable truck. Fuel pump, water pump, & the alternator were the only things needing replaced. Pretty good for that many miles! Comfortable, powerful, & it does everything I ask it to do. Best vehicle I've ever owned.


Favorite Features

Heated leather bucket seats. Did I tell you how reliable the truck has been?!


Suggested Improvements

Fuel economy could be better for a small block V8.

Review

Gas milage is bad no matter what we have tried to do. Computer chip, air intake, dual exhaust, doesnt make a difference. Still only get 13 miles a gal. 8 miles a gal towing. Should have bought the 454 it gets same mileage and has more power.


Suggested Improvements

More leg room in rear. Better gas mileage.

Review

Bought new, been in shop once for steering coupler at 40,000 miles. Currently have 142,000 miles. Again GM has put durability in trucks. Last truck was a1994 and put over 350,000 miles on it with minimal shop time. I've driven Fords and Dodge but they don't hold up to the country road driving like GM.


Favorite Features

Durability


Suggested Improvements

Cup holder - was improved in 01'
