2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4dr Crew Cab Z71 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


This truck is one of the best designed Chevy trucks I have owned. Everyone I take for a ride likes the 4 doors and roominess. The comfort is better then most cars I have driven. The match of crew cab and short (5'8" bed) is a perfect blend for my use. The 5.3L coupled with the limited slip 3.42 axle is good on mileage and acceleration. The fuel tank is large enough to get me where I need to go with minimal stops at the outrageously priced gas pumps. All in all, this truck was a hit even with some complaints that I had / have.

Best Features

I particularly like the temp / compass in the mirror. I like the folding outside rear view mirrors also. The rear folding seats are great! The maneuverability of the truck for driving & parking are excellent.

Worst Features

The brakes on this truck are the only complaint. The entire truck rates high in my view but the brakes, if I had known performed like they do, would have stopped me from buying the first year that Chevy 'cheapened' the truck by leaving 4 wheel disc brakes & going to front disc / rear drum.
