2-3 upshift clunk junk
By bhart7 on


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


i bought this vehicle brand new and
around 2,000 miles it started to have a
loud clunk noise in the transmission
when it shifted from 2nd to 3rd gear.
it has been progresively getting worse
and Chevrolet will not do anything
about it. They realize there is a
problem with these
transmissions. ....when it shifts it is
so loud you think the universal joints
are going to pop out. They have
responded telling me that "it is a
mometary reversal of the transmission
output Chevy says "even if we replace
the transmission we can't guarantee
that the next one won't have the same
problem. Want a Silverado

Best Features

my favorite feature i guess is the comfort of the ride in general. it rides like a big car and takes the bumps very well.

Worst Features

Fire the engineers that decided to allow the transmission to momentarily reverse itself.
