2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I think this redesign has it's
benefits, (ride, quiteness) but
there's too much plastic and loose
fitting interior parts. I have what
seems to be common problems--
driveshaft yoke likes to bind on
takeoff and makes a thumping noise,
ABS brakes absolutely suck--if I have
one tire loosing traction, it just
hums and does not want to stop!!! I
almost rear-ended someone because of a
very small patch of ice!! Needs more
sway control--maybe a rear sway bar--
too rocky in slow speed manuevers.


Best Features

I first thought the push button 4 wheel drive was a joke until I really used it--works very well. Rides very well and is comfortable on long trips.


Worst Features

Revise ABS maybe to reference two wheels slipping instead of one. Lower your parts prices... $220 for a new yoke when they go bad all the time? Give me a break. My '92 got the same mileage and had a bigger engine... (5.7 vs. 5.3) Look into better efficiency.

Review

No major problems at 101,xxx miles.
Doesn't burn oil, but did develope the
cold start tick at 24,000 mile. Switched
to synthetic blend. Also I have a
whistling sound coming from the tank
area, but told if it turns out to be the
fuel pump it would be replaced for free.
this problem came while still under
factory warranty, but it's still driving
75k miles later. Still using factory
brakes, but will replace soon.


Best Features

The 4th door.


Worst Features

Fix the cold start tick. Level out the front of the truck, so it doen't slant so much and you get a level ride.

Review

I purchased this truck after extensive
research. It proved to be excellent
in the snow, far better than my old
truck (1992 GMC Sierra 2500 Ext. Cab
4x4), especially with the push-button
auto 4 wheel drive, which always
kicked in properly. Nurse the gas
pedal and you'll get decent (for a
truck) gas milage with the 5.3L V8--
between 14 and 18 mpg on average.
This is phenomenal compared with my
old truck (9 to 10 mpg on a 7.4L 454
V8).


Best Features

Great engine; handled snow flawlessly; comfortable on long hauls; looks great (not too conservative, not to flashy)


Worst Features

I experienced a few annoyances: the pas. door started rattling when deep bass came through the sound system; steering fluid had to be replaced; and the running lights are constantly burning out.

Review

My first pickup. Love it! Plenty of
room in the extended cab for kids. My
wife and I have sat in there while the
adult kids had the front. A bit cramped
but not uncomfortable and a fun change
for us. Only one problem. In the year
and a half I have owned it. All brake
rotors were warped. Dealer replaced
them at no charge. Once you've had a
truck you'll never go back!


Best Features

This baby will go when you need it. Passing, merging, no problem! I like the interior design and color. I especially like the CD player.


Worst Features

Center drop down consol is a pain. Opens from the front and is difficult to get into while driving. I have a CD player with storage for cassett tapes. Also need a coin holder. Not much to complain about. I do love this truck!
