2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab SB


Review

What a wonderful decision. This truck
has been reliable and trouble free
since day one. It's even been rolled
onto its side! Plenty of power from
the 4.8 V8, and it gets decent gas
mileage, around 17MPG. No major
problems, other than the power steering
pump needing replacement at around
34,000 mi. Seats need replacing, the
brake pedal is downright soft, material
quality is questionable, the steering
is heavy, and the AC has a WEAK air
flow on full blast, though temp is
cool. Rough ride, but that can be
expected. Look carefully at this.
Verdict: If it's reliable, then forget
material quality, buy the car.


Best Features

The Vortec 4800, styling, full guages, decent step-in height, comfy back seat, the abilty to throw anything in the bed, and finally, RELIABILITY


Worst Features

Material quality, much firmer brake pedal with better brakes, lighter steering, better seats, and stronger air flow for AC. Slighty smoother ride to please those with sedans as well.

Review

This truck has been great! So far,
70,000 trouble free miles. Ride and
handling are great for a truck. My
only complaint was with the stock tires-
it should be illegal to put such poor
(traction B) tires on a vehicle this
heavy- yes, I rear ended somebody-
first time in over 30 yrs of driving.
With premium tires truck stops and
corners great. I did have to go to
aftermarket rims because the stock ones
were too skinny.


Best Features

Looks, performance, dependability


Worst Features

better tires, wider rims

Review

I have owned the vehicle for 3 years
with minor problems fixed the 1st year.
I am having problems with the ABS brake
system that other friends have had. Now
have 62K on the truck and ABS goes on
even when not needed. Sensor problem I
think. Chevy should have fixed by now.


Best Features

Tow haul transmission


Worst Features

Brakes very soft and not durable. Had to overhaul at 50K including rotors. All highway driving. ABS problems.

Review

Other than the typical problems
(squeaks, creaks and rattles) that
most people get from Chevy, have few
problems. Yoke was bad (free fix),
the tailgate handle broke (free fix),
and 4WD push button was recalled (free
fix). Recently had recall on tailgate
supports. Mileage not what I hoped,
but is 5.3L 4WD V8 with over sized
tires - 16 isn't bad. AC awesome,
even in Arizona! Never a problem with
overheating, pulls trailer with 4
motorcycles w/o even noticing. Plenty
of room for 4 adults, comfort
acceptable on long trips. Upgraded
exhaust and intake for performance,
great improvement. Rear doors are too
hard to get into though.


Best Features

Push button 4WD, bucket seats, road feel and driveability


Worst Features

Rear doors virtually unusuable. Level out the truck - dips in front. Raise ground clearance also, can't even put on larger/meatier tires without a lift kit.
