4 Dr LT 4WD Crew Cab SB HD

2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LT 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


This is a lot of truck but it does
have its flaws. Given there is
limited availability for full four
door trucks from GM this is the best
option besides an Avalanche. Overall
the truck is a joy to drive
with “plenty of power”. The interior
is awesome with as many features as a
luxury car. The only complaint is the
tapping in the engine. This noise
Called "piston slap" usually is only
noticeable for the first 30 sec to a
minute until the engine warms. I have
an 84 Ford F150 with 177K miles with
the same problem, knocks when it
starts then quits. Every mechanic I
talk to says engine tapping is just
part of owning a Chevy.

Best Features

Heated leather memory seats. Lots of power even though I don't use it.

Worst Features

Engine tapping noise due to piston slap. I like quite engines. Chevy has been building V8 engines like this for many years with great success. This should not be happening from a V8 Chevy engine (fixed in 03 models). Gas mileage is poor but its normal for a big truck.
