Reliable Truck For Getting Around — I have had to do minimal work on this truck. Had to replace the steering column lower bearing at 100k. I've had this truck for 5 years now and that has been the only problem. Regular maintenance on this truck has kept it running well and the body is in pretty good condition compared to others its age.

Built To Last — Never had an issue with this truck. It's been very reliable. This truck is very comfortable to drive. We use it for camping and trips to the coast. We will definitely buy another chevy pickup when it comes time to buy.

Pros

Overall a great pickup

Cons

Gas, but its a pickup so who cares.

Awesome — Its a great pickup with decent power for the engine that it has. My silverado has a 5.3L and it keeps up with most stuff but there are always other pickups that will get it. Seats in it are nice and back seat space is respectable for only being extended cab.

Cost of aftermarket parts.

Get One! — As far as perfomance, the truck has alot of get to it. Plenty of pick up and speed to make you move. Performance modifications are limited by cost but there are good ones. Everything is perfect but the expense of the modifications. Roomy interior, even with just the extended cab. The stepside ruins the bed space but the regular beds are huge.

Silverado Review — very clean and fun to drive would drive it anywhere. Will tow anything that you need it to. The gas mileage isnt the best but can you really blame it. Strong 6 liter engine and a heavy duty atomatic trans. plus, the four wheel drive is amazing
