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


Review

This is my first pickup and it is more comfortable to drive than many cars that I've owned. I have the 1500 LS with the 5.3L V8 and its performance, reliability and gas mileage for a vehicle this size is outstanding. I now have over 105,000 miles and haven't done much more than change the oil and filter every 3,000 miles! I do a lot of hunting and it has never let me down in out-of-the-way places. A great vehicle.


Best Features

Interior comfort, performance, and reliability.


Worst Features

Quality of the interior could be better.

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


Review

Great Truck. I drive a good number of miles a year and I’m very pleased with this truck. I believe that the 2WD has a much smoother ride that the Z71 (4WD), and since I have little use of the 4WD, that was an easy choice. The 5.3 L V8 has more than enough power to jump up and pass a truck on a two lane road. The heated, leather, power everything seats also are nice. I put a K&N air filter in it the first week I bought it and run Castrol Syntec 20W-50 year round. I have had no problems.


Best Features

5.3 L V8, the smooth ride and the heated leather seats


Worst Features

My only problem is that the seatbelt seems to rub the lower left side of the truck when I get it. It's almost rubbed a hole in the leather.

Review

The 2WD Silverado is a great choice for
someone who needs a truck, but also
does not want the gas mileage of a 4WD
truck. I opted for the locking
differential. With a little weight in
the bed at winter time, my truck has
yet to get stuck. I love the
comfortable and smooth ride and the
power from the 5.3 liter engine. I
have been able to achieve just over 20
MPG on long distance trips which I feel
is outstanding for a truck of this
size. Go buy one - you won't regret
it.
