2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Regular Cab 2dr Regular Cab Rwd LB (4.3L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Only options were automatic trans., HD suspension (Z85) and larger tires. 4.3 liter V6 and 3.42 axle were adequate almost all the time. Occasionally towed a 2,000 ATV trailer and it did well, but I would say the 3.73 axle would have been better with the six. Got as much as 21 mpg on hwy. Very bright headlights, comfortable ride. Dash looks cheap and flimsy, with painted plastic surfaces everywhere. Problems I had in 2 years were ABS module failure, AC compressor failure, and steering intermediate shaft clunk (common problem!), all repaired under warranty.


Best Features

V6 is surprisingly powerful on the low RPM end. Runs out of breath a bit if you need high speed passing, but normally not a bad choice if you do no heavy towing.


Worst Features

Front end is ugly, period. What were they thinking.... The brakes on this year are terrible! You would think that rear disks would be good, but NO. Almost dangerously underpowered brakes!

Review

4.8 V-8 very smooth and strong. Red
color very deep and luxurious. Hauling
capacity excellent. Short bed ride a
little choppy when bed empty. Handles
superb in snow and ice with 4 WD
engaged. Great vehicle!
