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


Review

I have owned 9 new vehicles in my life with 4 of them purchased to use for a business. This truck is by far the worst vehicle I have ever owned. I have never had so many different things wrong with one vehicle. Today was the last straw. 40,000 miles and the water pump is out. This vehicle has had electrical problems and still does, radio issues 5 different factory radios,it is on its 3rd exhaust system, tailgate latch issues, seat covers defective, seat belts wearing out and fraying, suspension issues in the front that a frame shop had to repair steering shaft had to be replaced the threshold on the rocker panel was broken and had to replaced. I am running out of room to name everthing


Best Features

It is comfortable to drive


Worst Features

The vehicle needs better components.

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


Review

This truck is much more fun to drive and handles very well as compared to a 1500 model. You cannot over-work or over-haul this truck.


Best Features

Interior room.


Worst Features

Stock tires and rims need to be larger to compensate for the larger vehicle profile.

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


Review

I traded my 94 K2500, 6.5 diesel for
the 8.1 vortex with the Allison tranny
and all I can say is wow!!. The Big
Dog Motor pulls my 5th wheel with no
effort at all especially when it comes
to climbing long......hills. Combined
with the Allison tranny, this is the
best power drive train that a RVer
could dream for save for the Duramax.
I get about 10.5 mpg when towing and
14 mpg when not which is not to bad
with 4.10 gearing. My wife likes the
quiet ride although it's little
stiffer than the old truck (new truck
has the camper package). The 03
exterior stying is Ok but a prefer the
older 02.


Best Features

Power, Power, Power


Worst Features

Need a bigger gas tank option for the 8.1. A 26 gal tank is too small. A 40 plus gal center mounted would do the trick.

Review

I Love, Love, Love this truck.. This is
the second truck I have owned from

with this truck other then routine
maintance. So this truck is a must
have for a person who is looking for
both power, reliability and Comfort.


Best Features

The 6.0 engine and the heated seats.


Worst Features

None this is a truck and it rides like one.

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.
