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


After owning both a Ford, and Dodge
(the worst)truck. This Silverado is a
pleasure to drive. My wife calls it
the "Lexus with a bed." I had a problem
early on with the 4WD warning message
appearing. After GM said that they had
no fix. They finally determined that it
was a faulty Encoder Motor. They
changed it and it's been fine since.
That has been my only issue. It's been
very reliable. I find the interior
materials much improved over former GM
products. I would certainly recommend
this truck to anyone. It rides and
handles great. Very comfortable. 5.3L
Engine has plenty of power, and yet gas
mileage at 16.5/19 on average. Great
for a large truck.

Best Features

Power/Heated Seats; Audio controls on the steering wheel; Message Center; 6 CD changer; Full back seat w/head rests for the kids; Added spray-on "Line-X" Bedliner, by far the best out there. Has made all the difference.

Worst Features

Not crazy about the new headlights appearance. Blind spot on sideview mirrors on inside lower corners. Makes it more difficult when backing up. Would prefer Cruise control on steering wheel, not on wand like my '84 Blazer. Perfect otherwise!!
