1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I've owned 2 Ford's and now a Chevy. The Silverado exceeded my expectations and forced me to fall in love with the brand. Boat load of power, great exhaust sound (duals), and nice styling. No problems except a bad radiator seal at 50,000 mi but warrantied. No recalls either, unlike the typical Ford 3-4 serious defects per model.


Best Features

Favorite aspect is definitely the power of the newly designed engine. I stop light race anyone who is foolish enough to assume a pickup is slow. Other pickups, SUV's, sedans, and even a Mustang have fallen prey to my 95% stock Silverado.


Worst Features

Only quarry with the Silverado designers is that the added the 3rd door, but weren't smart enough to add the fourth. The truck is symmetric so what was holding them back? Probably just a marketing tool to make guys who love their truck buy a new one with the 4th door.

1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 3dr Extended Cab SB


Review

This is my first Chevrolet and first
truck. The vehicle has been expensive
and troublesome. I really like the
car, but don't know that I'd buy
another, at least not another Chevy.\

Door and seats have needed rebuilding,
the brake control systems have required
$1600 in repairs in the last 17 months,
and the dealer has often needed
multiple tries to fix things.


Worst Features

Chevrolet needs to get their quality up to snuff. Reading reviews leads me to suspect later years may be a bit better. I certainly hope so!

1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


Review

A big lemon from bad water pump to poor
engineering (door stops and parking
brakes. Several recalls. GM refuses to
fix major items of failure such as ABS
computer ($1,200). My next car? You
can bet it won't be GM!


Best Features

Looks.


Worst Features

Hire some japanese engineers.

1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

This truck is without a doubt the best
truck I have ever owned. It does have
it's faults, mainly in the interior
build quality, I do like the design.
The truck has never let me down even
with 111,650 miles!! It's a beutiful
truck and provides a decent ride for a
pick-up truck.


Best Features

The Z71 package, the limited slip and skid plates have proved useful a couple of times even though I didn't think I needed them. The four-wheel drive is very solid and dependable. Don't think I could trust anything but a Vortec!


Worst Features

To many sqeaks, paint on dash chipped, use higher quality pieces! Also, Chevrolet needs to bring back the 350! It was to awsome to just throw away!
