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


I drove my Z71 for 120k miles and thoroughly enjoyed the ride. Might be the best vehicle I will every own.
I remember everytime I got behind the wheel I thought it can't be this good everytime. It never let me down.
For one stretch of near 10k miles I didn't reset the full mpg meter and the gage leveled off at 18.7 mpg. That was excellent for a 5.3L
Never did a repair other than a couple of minor jobs under warranty. Reliability was superior to any.

Best Features

Excellent ride on and off road. Great traction even without mud tire. The AWD did super in ice, snow or mud. Never lost control even on ice. Truely fun to drive in foul weather. Fuel mileage was as high as 23.5mpg on highway. Driver confort was superior with the dual zone air. Never had to

Worst Features

Steering drive line developed a small chatter. Leave the chrome bumper option available. The new models with painted bumpers turned be off. I am driving a F150 because of it. So far its a very good ride.
