Very Nice Ride, Dependable, Good Looking Great Around Truck — This is a good looking truck you can feel safe in and comfortable. It's very dependable . The heated leather seats are great in the winter and the remote start keeps it nice and toasty before you even get in. power seats and mirrors are always nice. Good all around truck

Pros

The entire truck has gone through so much abuse and still refuses to die.  This is proof of the quality of construction of the truck.  You get all of that rugged endurance for only a relatively small amount of money, too.

Cons

I've noticed the frame is twisting and bending quite rapidly and is noticeable most in between the cab and the bed.  The gas mileage on the V6 engine is 14 miles per gallon, which can make driving expensive.

Reliable And Fun. — This truck was my first truck and it lasted me a great deal of time. I was reckless at that young age and I repeatedly put the truck through misuse and abuse - I jumped railroad tracks, drifted around town, did burnouts, and the other usual kid stuff. However, even when lesser trucks would have quit, my truck just kept going. Overall you get more than what you pay for with this truck and I was impressed with its dependability.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Baby — The appearance of the vehicle is outstanding, she is my baby and I do what I can to take care of her. The ABS system is the only thing I don't like about it. The way I drive, I brake quickly and this causes problems with the sensors. I have had to replace all kinds of sensors and will probably have to replace the pump soon. The suspension has also been a little bit of a problem as I have custom 22" rims. I have had to replace all of the differencial twice and pinion rods and hub assembly. I wish I could put positive track on... that would be sweet!!!!!!!!!!!!! I do most of the repairs at home so the maintenance is not that hard except for the parts--- the fuel pump was a fun one. The gas now is really hard on me, though. Between $90-120 to fill up and that lasts about 4 or 5 days. Mileage is high 140,800. Great condition, can't beat it. The inside needs replacement on the seats but I am saving up to get custom bucket seats, $700 dollars a seat. $1200 for the back row but its gonna be awesome. I am tired of typing but I could just go on and on about her but im not

Boughtfrommybrother — Thought it would last a couple of years, but it just keeps on ticking! 208,000 miles and still going strong. It spent its first 8 years in Florida rust free and now now lives in chilly upstate New York. Significant repairs were an intake manifold gasket replacement at 180,000 miles and it has used 2 alternators.

Great Truck, Can Be Used For Work Or Play. — I've had this truck 7 years, and it has never been in the shop for anything major. This truck is very reliable, it will go anywhere that you're willing to take it, and you don't have to worry about it breaking down. The driver door has started to drop. It makes a clicking sound when opening and closing. The paint has started fading and chipping, although a new paint job would rectify this.

This Is The Best Truck Ever Made — Chevrolet power with reliability it has 170,000 miles on it and it has never broke on me nor have i had any major mechanic work on it. great acceleration and pick up. will put you back in your seat. chevy always has the smoothest ride and great off road capabilities. Gas mileage is the best you will get in a truck no matter what brand, interior and exterior styling is awesome. Definitely go with a chevy truck.

Been A Great Truck — Has been all that I would want in a truck and would recommend to friends and family. Ride is comfortable and has had no major issues for the eleven years I have owned the truck. Wish the new Chevy's had the space of the fords in the back seat

I Love This Truck It Has Always Been Good To Me Chevy All The Way. — I love this truck it is my first vehicle and i have no intention of parting with it. The performance is good of course it could be better it is only a v6, but it is good on gas and gets up and goes when i need it to. It gets about 15 city 20 hwy. The trans feels nice and solid without feeling stiff and the clutch always gives plenty of feedback and is heavy without making me think im driving a tractor. This truck is definitely a ton of fun to drive.

Best Vehicle Ever — 18mpg on a 40 mile/day typical commute with about 70% hwy miles. It is not a family car, it has no back seats. I have spent under $1k on non-routine maintenance on this truck over 12 years. If you have the opportunity to buy this truck from a solo owner who has kept every record like I have, have your mechanic check it out, then buy it. You should've bought this truck new. I should've bought this truck new with an extended cab. I've had direct experience with a number of cars/trucks, so I'll rank them: 1-00 Silverado, 2-05 Pilot, 3-83 Suburban, 4-95 Cherokee, and I include the latter 2 because (3) went 300k and (4) took 2 tons of abuse. If/when I sell my baby I am not negotiating on the price. It is far and away the best vehicle I've known, I'm the only driver, and I've saved every record. If you buy a vehicle this age, DEMAND records. Make it a point. If they don't have them, you have a SOLID negotiating point. Buy local, take it to your trusted mechanic for a pre-buy inspection. Save your $ on carfax and spend those at your local mechanic. New truck? Go price 18" tires. I've driven this truck to Phoenix (02), South Padre Island (05), and Omaha (02). Never a doubt. A Chevy V8 truck is the platinum standard. I'll be hard pressed to sell even if gas goes "high". I've had one $500 visit to change cabin air filters/fix squeaky door/fuel filter since 2000. I REALLY don't want to get rid of this truck. EVER. My son may get this as his school vehicle sometime next decade. The guy at the local gravel/mulch yard asks me every other time if I want to sell it. He gets a smile and a shake of the head. Here's what goes bad on this truck: filters/oil/tires/battery. I'm 20,000 miles from 200k service. Why are people Chevy/Ford/Toyota people? They buy a vehicle like this one.
