Long time Silverado owner
I have owned and driven a Chevy Silverado for 12 years. We have two Chevy trucks and they have never broken down. We love our Chevys and will never drive anything else. Our 2000 Silverado has super cold A/C, better than anyone elses vehicle I've ridden in.
Best truck i've ever owned!!
Bought mine new.4.8l V8,4X4 ext. cab short bed.Around 23000 miles rear brake caliper went bad ruining the rotor.Replaced rear brakes under warranty.Did all required maintenance myself,very easy truck to take care of(even though dropping transmission pan to replace filter was a little challenging.Now 120000 miles and still on original brakes!!!New spark plugs,battery,shocks, just bought 2nd set of Goodyear's.Couple stereo pushbuttons lost the backlight by now.Truck still runs like a dream!!!Half city,half highway miles-averaging 18 mpg-can't complaint!
Solid Truck for the money
Good Solid truck that has held its value very well. Never had any engine problems and maitainance was easy enough to take care of at home
Most Reliable Care I've Owned
Purchased new. Traded in '94 F-350 for the Silverado 1500. I experienced better payload, gas mileage then the Ford F-350. Great transport / haul vehicle. Only repair has been a chip on the windshield from a thrown pebble on the highway. Other than maintenance items of a new battery @ 90,000 miles, new tires @ 80,000 miles, & routine oil changes every 5,000 miles, radiator flushed @ 60,000 miles & transmission serviced every 30,000 miles, & rear-end gear oil changed @ 70,000. the truck has been repair free. Take of your truck and it'll take care of you.
only a few big problems
Good truck overall. Somewhat reliable at 130,000 miles but big-dollar repairs have hurt my loyalty to the Chevy brand. Have replaced head gaskets twice. Have replaced anti-theft components twice at considerable expense. Pinging at cold start is annoying and can't be good no matter what GM says. Fuel pump is failing. Catalytic converters replaced. Pitiful Firestones replaced at 60,000 miles.
very reliable truck
I own a 2000 chevy Silverado LS ext cab 3 dr. Ive put a total of 197000 miles into it with no repairs,uther than battery,tires,& basic maintenance that any vehicle requires but overall it has been by far the most reliable truck ive ever had,still own it!!!!!
