2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LT 2WD SB w/OnStar (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

First off, it is a 2001 silverado 1500 LT extended cab 4 door Z71 with Onstar.We bought this truck used at 176K miles and have since put it 10,000 miles on it. It is real comfortable and fun to drive and it has plenty of power. I put some 33 inch maxxis bigohrn tires on it and it went to 10-12 mpg which really sucks down the gas. However, the 4wd system is great for offroading. Only had some minor stuff to replace like the universal and the brakes. The truck can be easily modded to make it look and perform better, which is a plus. I plan on keeping this truck for as long as possible, and i am confident that it will keep performing


Best Features

Power, push button 4wd, reliability, comfort, appearance


Worst Features

Better gas mileage, 4.10 gears, maybe a better looking interior (but it is a truck, so i cant really complain), bigger gas tank

Review

Purchased this plain jane w/t truck in 2006 with over 100,000 now have 185,000 and still runs strong. only minor issues V6 is underpowered at times but gets the job done if you do light to none hauling and towing. overall pretty good truck.


Best Features

Solid Frame, engine


Worst Features

find a way to get more power out of the 4.3 V6 and increase MOG, go back to the pre-07 body style

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LT 2WD SB w/out OnStar (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Purchased new and still own. I LOVE this truck, best ever! I dont plan on getting another GM product till they change to another body style that i like.


Best Features

Interior is comfortable and still looks new. Exterior still shines. Heated power seats are great in the winter along with heated side mirrors


Worst Features

Better tires would be nice. Generals wore out @ 52k! Had to put new rear brakes @ 60k and Water pump @ 54k. Just a few recalls so far and no problem getting them fixed. Only wish they had a heater/ac like a FORD (Slow to heat in winter/cool in summer)

2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

After owning it for 8 yrs and 172000 miles who can argue its reliability. It still gets 18mpg with 4.8 v8. Have not done front brakes but did do back. 4 years ago flipped it at 65mph with family in it, no one even got a scratch. Glad ins decided to fix it. All I do is put gas in it and change the oil. Got 75000 miles out of original tires. Only on 3rd set of tires only been aligned 2 times.


Best Features

Reliability, never worry when I get in it. Would drive it cross country today. Very safe and comfortable ride. Cold A/c


Worst Features

Figure something out on the back breaks and bearings in the front hubs. Need to improve tailgate latch, plastic clips do not last.

Review

Ive had the truck for several years. Ive grown up in a family that has chev Ford and Dodge. By far the chev has the most power, comfort, and reliability ive ever seen. Very smooth running truck, lots of power for the 5.3. No complaints on fuel economy, its a v8 with more hp than competitors that still manages to get better gas mileage. Chevy for life.


Best Features

Strong motor and acceleration, comfortable seating front and rear, just an all around solid truck.


Worst Features

Very squeaky center console where I put my arm every time I dtive. It gets very annoying.
