Last Chevy I will buy
By pjc1 on


1997 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series K1500 Silverado 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


This is the most costly vehicle to
maintain that I have ever purchased.
Just a few things I have replaced
include 4 sets of rotors, transfer/axle
seals, fuel pump, alternator, wheel
cylinder, pinion seal, windshield wiper
motor, and horn. I just took it in for
service yesterday and they say it needs
over $1000 worth of repairs including
replacement of suspension components
and coolant leak repairs. I do not
abuse this vehicle in any way or use it
as a work truck. My next vehicle will
be a heavy duty Ford or Dodge.

Best Features

Has a car-like ride.

Worst Features

Brakes that actually stop the vehicle and real rotors. Real anti-sway bar (Had to replace with Hellwig) instead of one made of patio furniture metal. More leg room (Had to drill new holes and relocate seat). More reliable components on a $26,000.00 vehicle.
