4WD but only have 2WD
By Bill Heard on


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


Engineers still working on this one. At
about 350 miles service 4wd light comes
on although truck had never been placed
in 4WD. Two trip to service dept
service tech gives us GM document
#1243149 dated 2/14/03, that says there
is no permanent fix for this problem at
this time, however if you don't use the
4WD you can just unhook it. Bought
truck about one month after document.
Assure me it will be fixed just don't
know when. Very disappointed with lack
of help from dealership and Chevrolet.

Best Features

Heated seats,steering wheel controls, roomy, power

Worst Features

Better engineering before they sell it to the consumer. GM needs to make information available to its dealerships and its salesman so they can inform the hardworking blue collar buyer about KNOWN DEFECTS with its product.
