2007 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Classic LT1 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I just recently bought a 2007, Z71, Silverado Classic. It had been sitting on the lot for about a year. On the way home I noticed it bouncing a little bit. The next day I brought it back to the dealer and they replaced the tires for me free of charge. I was told that from sitting the tires had flat spots. I was just really proud of the way the situation was handled.
I like the looks alot more than the new silverado and I bought it for about 12,000 dollars under the sticker price becasue the new model is out. The leather is very comfortable. The Bose sound system is great for a stock stereo. It is also very capable off road for a stock vehicle.
Not too many. Maybe come with a little more height and little more power but that can be said about any stock pickup.

The 1500 Classic was a great bargain brand new. After adding weight to the bed, the tail end doesn't "jump around" on rough roads anymore. Excellent power and exceleration. I have experienced really great gas mileage with the V8 engine. Typically 316 miles on a half a tank (big tank). The seating is very comfortable for 3 people. The driver side seat squeeks alot and found that the welds that hold the seat down need to be re-welded (warrantied). Surprised that it handles well in bad winter conditions! Hub caps always come loose. Breaks squeel alot but,to dealership for some reason. Aux Power outlet has a electrical burn smell when used. Adding cruise or cd radio is not poss due to computer.
The 8 foot bed. The power of the Vortec 8 engine is impressive. Great gas mileage. Comfortable seating. Full size spare tire. Passanger airbag on/off feature. On/Off Switch for daytime running lights. Great tow package/handling.
A standard CD player and cruise control would have been nice. The interior design is 80's ish needs modernized. Better hub caps that don't come loose and fall off. Larger tail lights. Locking tailgate. Dealers will not install cruise or cd radio aftermarket due to computer/electrical issues.

Love this truck. Doesn't have all the bells/whistles of the new design, but for the price difference, it was a no brainer. 5.3l engine is flawless, as is the tranny. Pulls my 2500# boat without a grunt. No flaws or any defects in 11,000 miles (just like my 2001 Silverado). MPG is 12.5 for towing, 13/14 for city and 18.5/19.5 for highway without towing at 65mph. All this with 4WD and extended cab with the 4.10 axle. Truck is comfortable on long trips. Would definitely recommend it to anyone else including my kids.
Sound system, automatic 4WD, no nonsense way it goes about its business, and solid secure feel.
Truck has a very wide turning radius, however, testing non-4WD veh. shows this to be a characteristic of the 4WD. It would be nice to shorten it, if possible. Also, put in an OnStar unit and XM radio as options.
