1997 Chevrolet C/K 2500 Series K2500 HD Silverado 2dr Regular Cab 4WD LB


My truck has been very lightly used. First, a list of problems: alternator, fuel pump, intake manifold gaskets (twice), engine control module( left me sitting on the side of the road while on vaction), serpentine belt tensioner (fell off and left me sitting the side of the road on another vacation), rusty brake lines, transfer case output shaft retaining clip, ( this broke and left me on the side of the road after loading 1/2 yard of mulch on it), Water pump. I'm sure I've forgotten some others.Oh yah, wiper control module. The steering is too sensitive, It is tiring to drive on a trip with constant corrections. Never offroad. Put a load of wood on it and the rear sags excessively.

Best Features

Comfortable. Huge aftermarket support.

Worst Features

I live in a large city and all of the dealers are inept and arrogant!!! And they wonder why GM market share is falling like a rock! GM, stop building vehicles that are just good enough!
