Pros

It's got pep once it gets going

Cons

Slow off the block and  spins a lot.

Mine Is Cool — I love my truck, i inherited it from my dad. There's a couple mods but nothing fancy. It sure does like to spin. The engine is just strong enough to be fun but this thing isn't made for off road. I have gotten stuck in the most innocent of places. Mine is defiantly a street truck worthy of performance mods.

Pros

Built chevy tough! long lasting, and can handle anything you throw at it.

Cons

Over time it has started getting horrible fuel milage, Rides a little rough after 300k miles but was rode hard

If It Can Survive A 13 Yr Old And Farming It Can Survive It All! — Bought new in '02 its been rode hard, used, and abused. I'm talking hauling over loaded trailers, loaded down with rock, going mudding, gravel roads all the time, and chasing cattle. Its at 300k miles and still kicking it with no end close in sight. If you need a truck that is as tough or tougher than you look no further.

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

Dependable. — I liked the body style. The cab was well layed out. Handles well in inclement weather. Parts are easy to find and affordable. The bed is not too short or too long. Does just fine whether it's a long trip or a local run.

Excellent Ride — Great cargo capacity, power, comfort, and reliability only downfall is lack of gas mileage due to v8. Never got stuck, easy to drive even for a smaller individual. Roomy, Im 6 ft and I fit in the back seat with reasonable comfort. I love my Silverado will never buy a different truck.

I Really Like The Truck And Definatly Serves Its Purpose Of A Work Vehicle — I really like the versatility of this truck if I needed to haul a trailer or fill te bed up with something I could, or if I needed to take family somewhere I also could do that, the truck is very reliable and always ran and drove perfectly

Pros

amazing class, traditional guys truck.

Cons

back seat, even with the extended cab, is very confining. The leather could be a bit higher quality.

Love It. — I bought this truck about 6 years ago with 200kplus KM on it. Nearing 400 now, and I can say it is better than any new truck I have test driven to date. I drove a new Silverado today and had my pen ready to purchase it cash, but there is no way the new ones are worth more than 30k.. I will keep this truck until the doors rust off, and fortunate for me, the body is in perfect shape.

Pros

The torque in the higher RPMs while on the highway.

Cons

The fact that I can't open the tailgate.

Great For My First Vehicle. — Has great gas mileage. Runs great. Haven't had any problems with it. It's a pretty fast truck on the highway in the higher gears. I got it for a great price for the condition it's in. It's definitely a fun truck to drive around and own.
