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


I've actually driven two identical
2003Silverados & had same problem
with both. While taking a 6 hour road
trip the first truck died just 4 hours
into the trip & 300+ miles on the
odometer. Dealers were unable to find
the problem so I was towed 4 different
times w/in 10 days. Second vehicle
didn't die but hesitated & I knew
there was trouble. Few days later
truck died turns out if you wait 15
min it starts up again before dying
again 5 min later. I got towed once
again but dealer appears to have found
problem. Hoping that was
the problem. Note:Dealer that fixed it
wasnt same one that sold it.

Best Features

Love the style and the interior redesign. Drives smooth and has decent power for a V6.

Worst Features

Apparently truck needs better testing. What are the odds I got the two trucks that had same defect? Drive on highway about 4-5 hours straight and find out if it was just me or wait for the Recall. Reliability score is low because of this, both trucks got towed with 1K miles/less.
