New Model Year - Unreliable
By pclay on


2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LTZ 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


Our new 2014 Silverado is good looking, very comfortable and fun to drive.
Unfortunately it has been plagued with several problems which detract from the good points. For example, the truck has had starting problems during cold weather which would make us very hesitant to drive very far from home during winter months.
Also, if you were used to, say, a 2010 Silverado and used remote start, the 2014 acts very differently.
Our 2010 would quickly warm the cab and heated seats but the 2014s' seats will not feel ward to the touch although Chevrolet says that they do come on.
Features advertised such as blue LED lighting behind the radio knobs do not work.

Best Features

Very comfortable and fun to drive. Better mileage than our last Silverado (2010). Truck is also quieter than previous models we had experience with

Worst Features

There are a number of mechanical and Electronic issues including remote start, heated seats. The reliability of the truck needs to be improved. Our truck has had to be towed in because it would not start in cold weather. Also, we lost power steering and one of our heated seats stopped working. Fix the Blue LED lighting behind the radio knobs. We wonder if we will be able to keep this truck much longer. We are 1/4 into our warranty period and are concerned that reliability and maintenance costs will be an issue after warranty

Thanks for the review, I was thinking about buying a Silverado, just wondering if the dealership was able to resolve all the problems for you? And have you had any other problems since? Others on this site have reported car shaking at 70miles/hr, have you had the same problem?
