2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

No problems. I do mostly city driving
and get about the same gas mileage with
the the big v8 as I did with the small
v6. I switched from the regular cab to
extended to get more space, and got the
v8 because the v6 just didn't feel
right. I've only had 2 issues with the
truck. 1. It's too long. It doesn't
fit in my garage. 2. It doesn't turn
sharp enough, but Chevy sells an option
to fix that problem.


Best Features

I love having gauges rather than idiot lights. It's no race car, but the big v8 is worth its weight. 2002 was the last year before it was redesigned. It's a much nicer looking truck than 2003.


Worst Features

The cup holder in the middle of the front seat is in the way. The older style drink holder where the 12v outlets are worked better. There needs to be more internal storage. Skip the Good Year tires. They make any rain seem like ice. The front seats don't fully recline.

2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LS 2WD SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

All of the obvious plastic on the
inside of the truck make the interior
look cheap. You can hear plastic bits
rubbing together when you roll down
the road, especially coming from the
extend cab area.

The declo CD/tape deck that came with
this LT trimmed truck are pure junk.
The only upside were the big easy to
read buttons.

The only better looking truck is on
the road is the GMC Denali.

The four wheel steering option must be
nice. The turning radious on the
extended cab is pretty wide

Gas mileage is good in the 4.8 liter,
and the ride is comfortable. Overall,
this is a great truck.


Best Features

* Sharp looking truck. * 4.8 liter gets good milage compared to other similar trucks. * Smooth ride compared to other trucks. * Nice looking wheels.


Worst Features

* AC Declo Stereo is not worth its weight in sand. * Plastic interior looks cheap. * Bed rails are flimsy. They should be more sturdy or come standard with rail caps. * Suicide doors are inconvenient in parking lots.

2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LT 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Not into the overstyling of the Ford
or Dodge. Like the Toyota but the
Chevy had the biggest ext cab. Very
impressed with the heated leather and
the controls. Plenty of power with the
5.3 and I would worry about the tranny
if it had more power. The limited slip
comes with LT's but I wouldn't get any
P/up without it. Too much power to the
rear and it would be worthless in the
rain. Awesome with the limited slip.


Best Features

Interior design and size. Perfect.


Worst Features

Better fog lights. Cupholders in the rear that aren't in the door. Your child leaves his soda in the cupholder and gets out. What do you think happens when they slam the door????
