By dna4engr on


2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab Z71 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


First a few stats: Silver Birch
metallic, standard 5.3L V-8, auto, all
power options are standard, Z71 offroad
package with fender flares, tow
package, exterior mirror upgrade, and
power seat.
I've had the truck for one week and
really enjoy it. I wanted the GMC
version, but the Chevy dealer was more
willing to work on the price. I hated
the new Chevy body style (introduced
in '03) until they came out with the
crew cab, it really adds to the side
Thought about the new F-150, but didn't
like the interior or the brand new
engine. I am an engineer and I would
rather take my chances with new
sheetmetal than a new engine and

Best Features

4-Door Crew Cab is great for hauling people and stuff. 5'8" box has been good for hauling most other things. 5.3L power is great. I love the standard dual-zone climate control and the compass/temp in the mirror.

Worst Features

As a former Ford owner, I really miss the steering wheel controls for the cruise (my wifes '03 Impala has them). Make rear HVAC standard for all seating arrangements. If you don't have the bucket seats, one big vent in the dash supplies air to the rear seat.
