    2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - LS 4x2 Crew Cab

    Pros: Powerful but fuel efficient engine.

    Cons: Radio controls are a bit 'busy'

    Advice: Buy it and leave all those Nissan people in your dust!!!

    Its like driving a Corvette, but built like an A-1 Abrams tank!. Extremely powerful but gets 20+ MPG Hwy at 75mph!! Best truck so far, I have ever owned. Roomy, quick, powerful, growls like a pickup should. I have owned Fords, Dodges, Chevys, GMC, Suburu, this one is the creme-de-le-creme of them all.

    2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - LS 4x2 Extended Cab 8' Box

    Pros: The space

    Cons: The 4-ply tires

    Advice: Buy this truck!

    I bought my 2005 Silverado on July 18, 2005...so far, I have had absolutely no problems with it with the exception of the rear windows...they don't seem to seal very well and are making lots of noise when I drive on the highway. Hoping it's something that my dealer can take care of. Other than that, I love the truck...averages about 17-19 MPG, drives and rides very smooth, and is tough. I've had it out in pastures and down gravel roads and it takes it. Great truck so far!

    2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - LS 4x2 Extended Cab 6.5' Box

    Pros: Interior

    Cons: Front brake system

    Advice: Don't take the vehicle off the lot without the front brake system being replaced.

    Brake booster was faulty on my truck. It caused premature wear on the rotor. GM will turn the rotor but not replace. Owner is stuck with the cost of replacing the rotor prematurely.

    2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Z71 4x4 Regular Cab 6.5' Box

    Pros: Ride, comfort, appointments. Heated seats, Bose sound sys. 6 CD changer. XM, onstar

    Cons: Turning radius. Trade-in value.

    Advice: Don't get the V-6. It is underpowered and will take more gas to get from A to B.

    I have the 5.3. It has great power. 0 to 60 is quick. At speed limit, I can easily get 21 highway. Not so in the city. 15 to 16. If you accelerate at a sane pace, and don't jackrabbit the thing, it will treat you good at the pump. Plenty of room, even in the abreviated back seat area. The ride is like a luxery sedan! No s**t. It's great. If you want a lumber wagon, get the Ford. Like squeeks and rattles? The Dodge is for you. Bose sound system lacks nothing in ear candy, and the power heated leather seats are the cat's meow here in the frozen north. Best truck I've owned!

    2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Z71 4x4 Regular Cab 6.5' Box

    Pros: Smooth ride/decent gas mileage

    Cons: hissing sound from A/C

    Advice: Buy it while you can get the good deal.

    Crew Cab Z71 5.3L V8. Quiet, comfortable ride. Added a flowmaster and released some of the restricted power from that 5.3. Improved gas mileage and hp. It took a couple of weeks for me to appreciate the style, but the ride and power is what sold me. Definately better than the ford and i've never looked into the dodge (nobody i know has ever said anything good). Toyota and Nissan are too expensive for weaker trucks that look like they are mostly plastic.

    2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - LT 4x2 Crew Cab

    Pros: XM Radio and 6 disk changer

    Cons: A little low to the ground

    Advice: This is was best buy to take advantage of during the employee discount savings period

    I was totally surprised with the comforts of the LT in a pick-up, I use to drive a Suburban(LT). I also had a 94 Silverado for a number of years and it was nothing compared to what I got from the new Crew Cab-Silverado LT. I never liked the design change in the silverado until the 05 model. I guess it took a while to grow on me, and it did. I am extreamly please with the new Crew Cab-Silverado.

    2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Z71 4x4 Crew Cab

    Pros: To many to list opted for the 327 5.3 H.O. 315 HP engine.,the sunroof,the leather the bose system,all the options... did I mention the sun roof

    Cons: I opted for the special wheels... and I knew going in that the spare was steel.Should have bought an extra wheel

    Advice: BUY IT NOW get it LOADED get it CHEAP its a no brainer......

    Thought about buying any(kept my mind open)why pay more for the GMC(and get less)why buy a Dodge unless you like the rough ride...all for the 'hemi'Ford lacks power plus the are wonderfull as torches(look at the recalls and the news)toyota has steped up and sells a good product but price per fluid ounce.torque,H.P. etc chevy has them beat So the only real compition was and is the Titan....The only thing that stopped me from buying the Titan (and I know I would be just as happy )is the 'Deal' a 40,000.00 Titan (before rebate) cost you 35.000.00 (after all thats said and done)and thats what you have.... A 40,000.00 Chevy which is loaded to the gills...(before rebate)minus rebate of 3000.00 minus 7.000.00 employee discount. Cost you 30 maybe 29,000.000 so put the extra 5,000.00 into a short term CD or or pour 5,000.00 back into the chevy and make it a rocket or a monster truck...jsut my thought good luck
