I bought this truck with 110,000 miles on it and still drive it now, it has 235,000 miles on it. I service it myself, with all the best parts. I put a throttle body spacer, K&N air filter, Hypertec chip, true dual exhast, Accel super coil, and I get 16 in the city 19 on the Highwy with 32x11.50 tires. The vortec 350 engine is great for pulling. I don't care what anybody say's but my Chevy will out pull, out run, and out last any foreign made truck

I have driven this Truck 170k miles. Have maintained on regular basis. Only complaint is the heater/AC air selectors. Hard motors to replace and too expensive to have dealer do. Power Train still perfect. Have replaced Radiator and CV Axles and Hubs. Runs great and trusty off road.

had an old 97 chevy silverado 1500. engine was a 5.3 V8 with 350,000 miles on it. was a work truck for most of its life but it had the power, durability and dependability like no other truck i've ever driven. only thing i've ever had to replace was steering pump and a thermostat other than that, absolutely amazing truck. chevy needs to keep making them like this. unfortunately i sold her a few months ago but in december i will be revisiting another 97 silverado for sure. thankyou chevy for building a beautiful truck.

Found this truck with 84k on it.Looked good,ran good.It now has 94k. Replaced radiator, original shocks, original brake rotors and pads, front wheel bearings, intake mailfold gasket, rear differental seal, hoses, belt, idler arms, starter, fuel pump, original plugs and wires, cap and rotor, a/c compressor. Replaced all this as each item went out or was worn out. One thing still very good is the paint.T ruck was made in Canada and the paint seems better. Have friends with USA made trucks and the paint was big issue. I keep the oil changed at 2,000 miles. Not sure about past service of the truck. Next time I buy a used car or truck it will be with all records or I am walking away.
