Love my Z71 - but poor gas mileage
By Bobchev55 on


2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Extended Cab Z71 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


I have long since been a Chevy man. I
love my new '04 Silverado Z71 with the
5300 V8 in all respects except for
fuel economy. After several years of
driving a Ford truck with poor gas
mileage, I expected better fuel
economy than 13mpg from my brand new
Silverado! I get better mileage in my
custom 55 Chevrolet with a 4 barrel
carb and 3 speed trans - no overdrive!!

Best Features

Power, Power, and did I mention the Power!

Worst Features

Better fuel economy, come on let's face it they should do better than 13/14 mpg on the highway shouldn't they nowadays?
