Not as good as my '92

2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


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.
