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


This is a great truck. Very high build quality and still drives like a new truck. Usual problem with the parking brake dying early and at about 70000 miles echoes of the 'piston slap' problem. New brakes cost $1300 at 120000 miles partially due to problems complicated by the parking brake issue. At 125000 I've got a minor but annoying rear main seal leak.

Best Features

Great looking truck. Comfortable and fun to drive. Plenty of power.

Worst Features

GM should fix the 'piston slap' issue. They claim there's nothing wrong but it's annoying.
