2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Silverado 1500
Chevrolet Silverado: a great truck for the road.
It performs really well and rarely has problems. It is not rugged enough for me. It is comfortable but does not have GPS which I'd like. The main problem I have is an oil leak and flat tires on a regular basis. The radio went out sooner than I thought it would but I did get it used. It is very easy to drive and has a smooth ride. The back is long enough to store needed gear. Even though it is good on gas I'd rather have something better. I want to upgrade to a newer model or get a Jeep for more rugged driving. I'd also like to get a vehicle that is environmentally friendly. I feel guilty for driving my truck for this reason. I have had it for a long time and like it a lot in general even though it is not the perfect vehicle for me. I think the dark gray color is attractive. It is fun to drive with family or to work. I feel relatively safe in knowing that nothing too bad will hold me back from driving to my destination. It does not cost too much to take to get an oil change or any other necessary fixes. It does not have enough power but is good enough for my intentions. For the most part I'd say it is a pretty good truck and I am grateful for it.
One of my favorite body styles. They are old school shaped with a modern feel.
My dad bought it brand new in 2000. Right away it ate a fuel pump but that was the only issue besides regular maintenance. At 180000 miles the power steering pump went out then there were no issues until 225000 there was a leak from the oil pan which is to be expected at that high of mileage. The mechanics messed up when putting the new main bearing seal so while driving the seal fell into the crankcase ruining the engine. I do not count that against the vehicle because that was a human failure. At 250000 miles the tranny finally went. The truck had been on cross country trips with a trailer 8 times and has been a daily driver for it is entire life. 10/10 would recommend it for a first vehicle or an old faithful. It even survived my high school years where we were idiots.
My truck is dependable, strong job and be ready and something your proud to drive.
It's a extended cab Silverado 1500 it gets 19 to 23 mpg has 255000 mi the most dependable truck I have owned yet. I have owned Chevrolet all my life and worked on Ford and Chrysler vehicles and my Chevy is the most economical truck yet the performance and reliability has been very satisfactory the maintenance has been normal with a truck with the mileage. The comfort and quality of the interior is top notch its still like new no sign of wear my dealership keeps wanting me to trade it in and have offered good money for it.
Chevrolet tough and strong.
My vehicle has 395, 000 miles on it and still runs great. I`ve had to replace radiator, tires, brakes, and did a tune up, changed oil in the past 6 months and its like brand new. I use the truck to pull my boat so its strong and can take the heavy load. The interior is plush and comfortable, doesn't have a lot of features as far as no heated seats but with a great heater who needs the extra whistles so to say. I love my truck and will drive it till it goes to the junkyard.
Buying a vehicle that's right for you.
The vehicle I own is okay, we bought it used but it was practically brand new. The previous owner never drove it but took care of it. The downfall of him not driving it is that the parts are getting old fast. The truck is our only vehicle so it gets driven a lot, and in the last year that we've had it we've sunken a lot of money that I didn't want to. So when you're buying a vehicle just be careful.
You can't always trust what your trucks dials read!
My Chevy is an ok truck, however we've had problems with it and the gas tank ever since we bought it a few years back. It doesn't read right at all, and recently it stranded me on the side of the interstate. It also has problems with the brake lights coming on indicating a problem with the brakes, but nothing wrong can be found with them. Our old Chevy had this problem also.
Durable, comfortable, long lasting truck.
Very comfortable ride that can get me anywhere I need it to. Whether I am driving around town to work, headed to the grocery store, or up in the mountains for hunting season I know that my truck will get me there. Over it is lifetime I have had very few mechanical problems and it is such an easy truck to work on or have worked on if I am unable to do the repair myself.
The 2000 Silverado has 18 inch wheels and aluminum rims with Michelin tires.
My Silverado is a 3 door lt, I wish it was a 4 dr. It has 12 way heated leather bucket seats both driver & passenger. The trunk bed is short but it has a rear light at night to see in the bed. The engine is a v8 with an automatic transmission with overdrive gears. The radio is am/FM with a CD player and a cassette player. The color is silver and has great trim.
Good mileage for a four wheel drive truck.
Our 5. 3 liter v8 gets great gas mileage and tows our 17 foot travel trailer with no problems. It is the extended cab which access to the backseat easier than the crew cab in my opinion. Having four wheel drive makes it fun in the country and expands where we can get to. Problems have been very few, CD player covered under warranty and windshield wiper arm.
Other than the usual rust areas that are common for these trucks I would not trade or sell it unless it was really a great deal!
I own a 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 it is used when I purchased it in December 2014. I bought this truck from a dealership with 144,000 miles on it comes with all the bells and whistles. The only major repairs on the truck made in 4yrs is a driver's side rotor, brake pads on back and hood release cable. The truck now has 178,835 miles now and runs stone.
