Used 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 1500HD Consumer Reviews
6 months and 5K miles later no major c/o. Happy from day 1 (low/no pressure sales pitch) to now. Mine is loaded and is more comfortable, and has more features than my wife's Mercedes E-320 (no exaggeration). Definitely a "gentleman's" truck. Wouldn't get it to work on the farm (to many accessory features that would have the potential to break). But as far as towing ability (boat) and driveablility couldn't imagine a finer ride. Has the auto-temp control, which the 2500 lacks, which is a big plus on road trips (no constant knob turning). Didn't think any other truck matched this one, and still believe that.
Most Leg room/space for a Four door Pickup,
I was ready to buy this truck when I saw the prototype two years ago. It is great for work and fantistac for the family. My wife has a Nissan Quest and now we get to get a Passat because the truck will double for a family hauler when needed. I had a 1999 Silverado before this one and this is a much better built truck.
great vehicle, fun to drive
Only about 8K on the clock, but no real problems yet. A few times now, the A/C blows warm for some reason but it's rare. There is some valve noise with this engine that some one else here is concerned about. I believe it to be normal. Some engines make more noise than others. Power is fantastic. Ride is decent. Pretty bumpy on these L.A. freeways, but the towing/hauling capacity beats Fords flat out. I compared to F250 and this 1500HD is superior in just about every way in terms of utility. Comparing this truck to the F150 4-door was a no brainer - The F150 5 foot bed was a big deterrent as I use this truck for motorcycles, etc.
