I bought this truck in 1998 with 44,000 miles and some remaining warranty. I now have338,000 miles on original 350 gas engine and automatic. I have only replaced the radiator and electric fuel pump. Small annoying things have finally failed or become hard to use like the mirrors are loosening and do not hold position well. The anodizing on the aluminum wheels is beginning to look a little rough Still looks really good for its age like Dolly Parton! It is not pampered but gets a lot of highway miles. Braking on this truck has always been below average with a soft pedal under a hard stop. Kind of like me, a senior citizen but still going and nothing major has happened. Steering is still tight with no looseness in the front suspension or steering. Still running on the original drive shaft and rear differential. Body and interior are still tight with no rattles or noises. Full gauges set not the skimpy gauges of new vehicles. I love this truck. I would not be afraid to head out on a long trip with this truck. It will be pulling a small travel trailer next year.

A great, reliable & comfortable ride.

My 1994 k1500 interior peaked in features and design. In 1995 - 1998 (from personal ownership of a 97) the interior changed considerably. The comfort of the 94 is on par with the 97 that I owned back in 2001 - 2004. My personal preference for interior design is my 94 over the 97. This is a Short Wide Box and standard cab, which I believe is destined to become a classic. The exterior has good paint possibly because Chevy may have found the right answer for the clear coat by the time my truck was assembled at the factory in the spring of 1994. The 5.7 liter/ auto 4sp OD, is a great combination of reliability and smooth operation. It starts 1st time, cold or warm, and is still running strong with 186,000+ miles.

Steering wheel is too big. The power window switches on the driver side need to be better spaced. The cassette deck is too far from the driver to reach comfortably,{ even though thats where a better up to date stereo is forced to go}, and the side manual mirrors should have been power, because after going to the car wash, they almost always need adjusting.
