2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


This is an almost perfect truck. Comfort, handsome design, and a combined mileage 17.5 MPG. Powerful precise steering, automatic transfer case. Almost perfect. The bad, cold start knock (annoying). Weak intermedate steering shaft (replaced). Known for bad fuel guage sending units (hasn`t happened yet). Nothing's perfect and the good more than offsets the bad. Best truck I ever drove. What`s bad, the bad is silly stuff GM should have got right in the first place.

Best Features

Automatic 4x4, Good gas mileage for its segment. Handsome looks until 03. Very powerful, comfortable interior. Rides and drives like a car? (Kind of a dislike) I like the stance of a Dodge better but for the long haul Chevy`s car like ride is more livable.

Worst Features

Steering shaft, cold start knock, windshield wiper motor,fuel guage, hot/cold selecter.
