2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LS Rwd LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I find this truck to be average. It
has the steering thump noise, found in
chevy trucks since 1999 that chevy
won't solve. Also had mildew smell in
the air conditioner, the dealer
installed a circuit board to correct
this. Also the truck has the common
transmisson shudder on acceleration.


Best Features

The bose sound system, ride and fuel mileage are good.


Worst Features

Perhaps a little more thought at the design or upgrade stage could prevent these kind of unacceptable problems. Considering the many years chevy has built trucks this dosen't make sense.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LT 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I think the Chevy 4x4 Silverado 4dr.
Z71 is great purchase for those
individuals who plan on driving the
vehicle how it was intended to be
driven. The truck has an excellent
ride and drive, and still maintains
decent off road capabilities. The
towing capabilities are plenty for most
of the consumers in the market for this
truck. The interior is comfortable and
easy to keep clean. I have done some
off roading and am satisfied with the
truck performance. There are cheap and
easy after market add ons to increase
horsepower.


Best Features

The comfort of the interior is a big plus.The 5.3 plenty of horses to keep most truck enthusiasts happy.The ease of the 4x4 is fantastic and has a much faster lock in than the old ones.The digital stereo and 6 disc changer add to the comfort.


Worst Features

The gas mileage with the 5.3 leaves alot to be desired.The truck needs improvement with the long turning radius.If you do much city driving look for a truck which can be parked easily and fits into most parking places,this truck does not.

2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

When the 03's first came out I hated
the new design but it grew on me. I
added a billet aluminum grille and it
looks like a whole new truck now. The
power of just the 4.8L impressed me so
much that I thought it was a 5.3L at
first. I had two Dodge Rams previously
and the vortech motor would just walk
all over the 5.2L and 5.9L's I had in
my Rams. Overall it's a AWESOME truck
and Chevy got back my loyalty with this
truck!


Best Features

Vortec V8 power, dual zone climate control, auto 4wd feature, and the push button 4wd options


Worst Features

Sliding back window and larger standard tires on the 4x4 non Z71. The 245/75/16's look too small on the 4x4's. Make the 265/75/16's standard on all 4x4's.

Review

I traded in my Volvo XC 70 because I
saw this truck at the dealership as I
drove by every day for three weeks. I
have not been disappointed. Plenty of
power and compliments! Runs and looks
great. Great build quality and very
comfortable.


Best Features

Comfortable interior and plenty of engine power. Good build quality.


Worst Features

Make a limited slip differential standard. Did not realize truck did not have it until it snowed. Truck is a 4x4 but I am forced to use it more than I would with a posi rearend.
