just hit 220,000 miles, and all i have done to this truck since i bought it new is replace tires, intake gaskets at 125,000 (easy job on the 5.3), fuel pump at 200,000, also changed the spark plugs when i did the intake...thats it!!! i have done way more heavy towing than i ever should have with a half ton, the tranny still shifts good, and the motor still has plenty of power...i recently drove from southeast minnesota to missoula montana and averaged 19.7 mpg.

Reliable Farm Truck

140,000 dirt road, mud, and interstate miles. Primarily used as a farm truck, it has held up better than my previous '01 and '03 Silverados. I have replaced the hub bearings, the power steering gearbox, water pump, serpentine belts and the shocks. I plan on buying yet another GM product when I get about 200,000 miles on my '04. The biggest flaw with the 1/2 ton GM trucks (in my opinion) is the 4L60E transmission; Change the fluid and filter every 35,000 miles and the drivetrain will last forever.

2004 silverado

by from Raleigh, NC on February 13, 2012

I bought a 2004 silverado, it is my 4th 1500/silverado 4x4 I've owned. I like the body style of the 07 better, but this one will grow on you. I have had 2 with the 350 motor and 2 with the 4.8L. have ...
I bought a 2004 silverado, it is my 4th 1500/silverado 4x4 I've owned. I like the body style of the 07 better, but this one will grow on you. I have had 2 with the 350 motor and 2 with the 4.8L. have not noticed any drop in power. This truck is a work truck model other than the drivers seat has lost some padding and no console it ios a great truck. I use it for work, and for driving out on the beach fishing. They are great in the sand, and the snow. I had an Expedition and it was a dog in the sand. Mileage is fair 17 -20 mpg but it is a big truck and can haul a lot. I have had Rangers and S-10's they just don't get the job done.

My truch has 70,100 miles and still hauls like mess. My grandpa gave it to me as a gift and i just had the brakes changed, and theyve never been changed before. this truck, my grandpa told me, has never had any defects other than the electrical seat not working when he got it at first. not only the brakes lasting forever but the original factory battery just went out for the first time to, so the truck can trully i think maintiain itself for a very long time, seeing my grandpa never really even had any mainteance other than what his manual told him.

2004 Chevy Silverado

by from VA on May 29, 2010

Awesome performance over the last 6 years and 70,000 miles no complaints. I have used it to tow multiple times to include other vehicles and never had a problem.

I had the problem with the steering shaft shortly after purchase($75; fixed it myself) and it left a sour first impression. I then had to tow 5 tons for a side project and the truck performed like a champ. Recently purchased a thirty thousand dollar toyota 4runner for my wife and i drove that for about a week. I didn't realize how much i loved my chevy until i fired it up again and put the pedal down. I have owned it for a year and still catch myself smiling on the highway...

Best Truck I Have Driven

by from Los Angeles on September 12, 2007

This truck is all a truck should be. A ruggid, tough truck with great style and performance. Rides like a dream and never has a problem. Every truck owner should try this vehicle.

I've owned other brands but my brother talked me into buying a Chevy. It's a 10 year old truck so it's gonna have some issues but by and large seems to be good. I love the layout of the interior..it has leather seats..comfortable but not as comfortable as the Ford that I had a few years ago. Extended cab has room for the kids. Only had it a fews weeks but I'm loving it so far!!!

I am so sad that I have to sell my truck, but I have to now that I'm having a family. I love the quiet drive. I have never had a problem with my truck. I think the cars depreciation value is great. I'm really going to miss it, but I would recommend this vehicle to anyone who wants a single cab.

My dad bought me a used 2004 silverado LT with 40,000 miles on it as my first car, and i love it. About a few months into it, we had to get the engine heads replaced but that was a standard recall so it was free. Whenever I go to get onto the freeway it sounds like a sports car. The engine shifts great for the most part, and has never let me down. Up here in Michigan with our harsh winters, I can just plow through a foot of slush and snow with ease. My chevy has never let me down, and I think I will continue buying silverados.
