Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: the powerful 6.0 liter motor linked to the all-wheel drive system
Cons: splash gets into the engine compartment
Advice: Buy it.Best combination of performance and function. All-wheel drive with a 6 litre V-8 means zip plus traction in rain and snow. The etended cab yields a reasonably useable back seat. The 5-speed automatic transmission is quick and smooth. Acceleration and handling are superb. The 20 inch wheels compromise the ride. I replaced them with 18 inch Torqthrusts which look better and ride much more comfortably. The interior matches the comforts of a Suburban. Overall, a really fun and functional vehicle.
Pros: appearance and performance
Advice: check the ride of the vehicle u plan to buymy 2003 silverado was a shakerado and made my back hurt and my wife very tired.
Pros: looks, comfort, quality, performance, overall functionality.
Cons: less than great mileage with any of the engine options...hurry up with the hybrids already!
Advice: Best truck you can buy as far as I can tell.Test drove one today. Absolutely awesome ride and comfort. I hear complaints in some reviews, but the car I'm trading in is such a junker, this new silverado feels like a magic carpet ride to me. Will probably buy it, would buy the Avalanche instead perhaps if I had a little more money...
Pros: power and comfort
Advice: 4.8L powerful and better in gas vs 5.3LThis is a best American truck I ever drove. You want a truck Chevy Silverado is only one for you. Let's go buy one!! GO USA!!
Pros: The front end and it's size.
Advice: You definitely have to drive it realize it's full potential.When I drove it I had a hard time reminding myself I was in a truck. It has a very smooth ride, better handling than one would expect.
Pros: Quiet when on the road
Cons: aluminum cylinder heads - hope they are not bad like Ford
Advice: Get underneath and compare to Ford, DodgeNice stiff frame; car-like ride with good handling on highway; great gas mileage (18 in the city - 19 on the freeway; plenty of nice features - as good and comfortable as any car plus it is sturdy - pulls 5,000 LB boat fine - plenty of reserve power with 350 engine and a/t Tailpipe is clean as a whistle!
Pros: Smooth Ride, Powerful Engine, comfortable large interior
