not bad over all
By Johnny on


2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 2dr Regular Cab LS 4WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)


Bought used with 29,000 miles on it and it now has 53,000. During that time I have had to replace the fuel pump and a rear brake caliper. The v6 has been reliable and has decent power for everyday driving, but the fuel mileage is no better than the v8. 4x4 system works fine and has done well in mud and snow. Tire wear, steering, and ride comfort have all been very good. I am satisfied for the most part but if I were going to buy again I would get the v8. I got the v6 because it had a cheaper sticker price, but I'm not saving anything on gas. It uses just as much as v-8 chevy's that I had previously.

Best Features

Good looks (like chevy trucks have always had.) ride and comfort are above average. Interior is nice and controls are easy to reach and use.

Worst Features

The fold down console in the center of the seat is nice to have but it needs to be a couple inches taller, and the latch to the storage inside the console doesn't seem very reliable. Fuel mileage/power ratio is very poor compared to the v8.
