Fourth GM Truck Purchase
By matt d. on


1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab SB


I just bought my fourth fullsize GM
truck today -- a used '96 Silverado X-
cab. My previous used purchase was a
1997 GMC Suburban (same vehicle). It
had 287,000 miles on it when I traded
it in on a 2002 Suburban, and the only
repairs I ever made to it was an
intake manifold gasket (at 280,000)
and an alternator (at 260,000). The
received Mobil 1 10W40 its entire life
and ran and looked like new when I
sold it. I'm sure that vehicle will
go for 400,000 miles with no
problems. Unbelievable. I look
forward to the next 309,000 miles on
my "new" '96 model.

Best Features

durability, dependability, clean looks, nice tweed cloth interior, 3rd door, more than enough leg and head room for a 6'3" guy. Rear leg room is adequate for an average size adult -- even on long trips.

Worst Features

A/C outlets need to be closer to driver and need to have wider range of adjustability
