Switched to Extended Cab
By RoeberR on


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


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.
