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


Review

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.

2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 2WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have owned alot of chevy trucks and I
must say this is the best one yet.
Upgraded to the 1500 HD to pull 7300lb
boat. Lots of power and great stance.
Stable ride while pulling heavy loads
long distances. Also has excellant
braking with a firm pedal. Roomy
interior and friends enjoy the rear
console and cup holders. Can't
complain. Will definitly trade for
another one in the future.


Best Features

Towing capacity. Ease of driving. Stereo visability


Worst Features

Better front cup holders. Better milage. Either a lockable console or glove box.

Review

From the get-go my boyfriend and I have
been thrilled with this truck. The
initial purchase (over the phone-sight
unseen) to 20k/m later this truck has
exceeded our expectations.
Mechanically nothing has gone wrong,
though we are fenatics about
maintenance. Don't get me wrong, this
truck does work (long road trips, boats
and tons of SCUBA gear) and even then
it is more comfortable than our other
vehicle (Audi A6).


Best Features

Everything, especially the OnStar feature.


Worst Features

Heated Steering Wheel (for the cold New England months). Missed out on the steering wheel controls for the radio by one model year (see 2003 model).

Review

I have been happy with the truck
itself, but not with the engine. At
20000 KM, the engine started to knock.
The dealer says it is 'normal' and
refuses to deal with the issue. Idling
smoothness and mileage have also been
affected. I caution anyone buying a
Chev truck to do so only if the engine
has an extended warranty.
