2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab SB


I have traded cars every 24 months
since 1987 until the 2000 Silverado.
I've driven it 48 months. I had
differential bearing failure ($1400 -
50% GM regional repayment)at 45K miles
and anti-Lok light in the winter until
the system is warm. Michelin 265/70-16
SUV Terrain tires and top end Monroe
shocks improved the ride to almost
perfect. 16.8 C/H MPG average no better
on the highway only (80+ MPH usually).
Parking brake has little holding power.
Replaced all 4 brakes at 80K miles and
was advised that 50% material
remained. Previous generations got
only 30K miles, so I'm making up for
the bearing failure in reduced brake

Best Features

Console with notepad holder. Rear seat flips up for easy dog travel.

Worst Features

Change the rear doors to a slide like a van or a double hinge that opens back toward the box. The rear door is almost useless in a parking lot unless you have an open space on either side. Not likely in Atlanta.
