    2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 - Base 4x2 Extended Cab Long Box

    Pros: Front seating area and comfort.

    Cons: Less than adequate rear area seating and comfort. No rear cup holders.

    Advice: Think twice! I'm ashamed to have to say that my vehicle is a good example of a poorly built American truck.

    BUILT AND RIDES LIKE A ROCK. No one is able to fix the constant undercarriage rattling sound and front end shimmy problems. I've had far too many problems with my vehicle. With just at 60K mileage, I've had to replace the battery twice, battery terminals & cables, brake booster, alternator and water pump. Even after replacing the alternator and assicated cables, I continue to have electrical problems. I'm very unhappy and disappointed with Chevrolet and the dealership I purchased it from. I expected a better built vehicle. It'll be a long time before I consider purchasing another American made truck. I should have kept my Extended Cab Nissan P/U or purchased a Toyota P/U.
