Drive it until it dies
By diniman58 on


2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Bought new in '00 and other than the front wheel bearings and the crank sensor replaced I have not had any problems with it. 184k, repeat 184k, mostly HWY driving averaging 16 mpg in winter to 18 in warmer weather and not a drop of oil is used. I tow a 19ft runabout and there is plenty of power even later with the high mileage. Piston slap when cold starting is somewhat annoying, but service tech's have said that it is common and does not cause damage. This truck will be driven by me until it croaks and then I will more than likely replace the engine or whatever else needs to be done. Transmission flushed every 60k or so does wonders. Great truck. Every Ford owner wishes they were so lucky..

Best Features

Reliability, quiteness, towing power, looks, durability

Worst Features

Rear doors need design improvement because they take extra effort to close properly to insure they are completly latched.
