2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


Review

This is a great all around truck. It's
good for hauling all the family,
friends AND all their junk - in
spacious comfort, unlike an SUV, where
you get room for people OR cargo.
Performance is incredible from 6.0L V8,
real-world gas mileage varies between
12 mpg city - 15 mpg hiway. VERY roomy
& comfortable. Very well built - NO
quality or reliability issues during
1st year of ownership.


Best Features

Interior comfort, performance.


Worst Features

OEM 245/65/16 tires are too small. I had to upgrade to larger tires but was limited there, as the upgraded forged aluminum wheels are also too narrow at 6.5". Needs a light under the hood. It would also be nice if 2500HD had optional variable ride control, offered ONLY on 1500s.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab LS Rwd LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


Review

My first diesel, and a great one. I am
a Hot Shot driver and travel all types
of roads and conditions all over the
country. It is my home away from home.
People come up to me whenever I stop
for fuel and start a conversation
regarding my truck. The fuel mileage is
good, 17 to 18 mpg average. The ride is
comfortable. I will purchase another
Chevy when this one wears out...many
years down the road.


Best Features

Exterior and interior styling.


Worst Features

Driver seat not designed for short people. The head rest pushes my head forward & I have to make adjustments. Very uncomfortable. Front seats do not recline. I sometimes have to nap or sleep in my truck in my line of work.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab LT 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this truck with 8,000 miles on
it and still can't figure out why it
was turned back. It's the most
comfortable truck I've ever owned and
the difference between it and my 2002
3500 Silverado are significant. Chevy
worked on the basics for the 2001 and
2002s but refined the beast in 03.
This was/is my wifes truck and at
110lbs, has no trouble getting around
and enjoys being Queen of the road.
The Duramx/Allison combination is
perfection and POWER!


Best Features

Engine, Trans and seating comfort. Ride is also very good for a 3/4 ton truck.


Worst Features

I miss the overhead counlole from the 2002.

Review

After my break in period I noticed a
significant drop in fuel economy. I
went from averaging 14mpg/city to
11mpg/city. Once I hit a little more
than 1,000 miles I noticed a problem
in my steering. The dealership said
it was probably the intermediate shaft
but it has been intermittent and
because they could not hear or feel it
the day I took it down they did not
want to chage it out. At about 5,000
miles the service 4WD warning came on.
The very next time I started the
vehicle it looked fine. It happened a
couple more times and the dealer was
unable to find a problem with my 4WD
system.


Best Features

I like the power fold in mirrors. There is quite a bit of room in the backseat. The seatbelts in the front are in a very comfortable position.


Worst Features

The airdam on the front could have been designed better so that the vehicle came with larger tires. Atleast 31s. The wheels are also very narrow for a truck this size. They are only 6.5".
