Reliable and comfortable 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500.
We bought our truck used, but in good condition. We recently have had to replace the tires, hubs, and brakes. We are also replacing the headlight due to them being very cloudy and dim. Our truck has been very reliable before and after the repairs we have made. We often use it to take trips 200+ mile trips and never worry about it breaking down. The leather seats are beginning to rip, but all the power options still work very well. Our family of five, two of our children in booster seats and one in a car seat, fit comfortably inside the truck. We've never had a problem with the air conditioning or the heat, but the radio does not pick up radio stations for very long.
I love my truck. I have not had any problems more problems with it.
I love my truck. I bought it second hand online sales. Seemed dependable at the time of purchase. I sold my Chevrolet blazer for 2200. 00 and paid 2500. 00 cash for my truck so I was out 300. 00. It was loud and I needed it to haul stuff because I was tired of asking people to use their vehicle. It ran fine and the ac and all worked but I drove it for a few months and I heard a loud noise. I came to find out that the transfer case was full of holes and needed to be replaced. It took me nine months to come up with the money to have it fixed. Mitchell's wanted a thousand dollars to fix it. I ended up getting a used one and had it replaced for 600. 00.
Best (older) truck to own.
I've owned my 2001 Chevy Silverado for 1 year and I am extremely satisfied. I've had no major problems with this vehicle. It rides super nice. Actually, it rides better than my mates 2013 Chevy. The motor and transmission both are in great shape for having 200, 000 miles on them. The vortec engine, in my opinion, just cannot be matched. I have heated seats, which are so very nice to have in the winter! The truck also looks great. The body has been taken care of and has very minimal rust. I wouldn't trade this truck for anything!
I am not sure what your asking.
It has a lot of miles. It misses although p have changed out plugs and wires. The 4 wheel drive works great. The fuel pump didn't last long had to replace it. But if you raise the bed of the truck up it is fairly easy project to replace the fuel pump. The heat and cooling went out in it. The windshield washer fluid leaks out the design on it is not very well made. It started leaking oil and its using coolant but not leaking. Struts and shocks do not last long.
It has awesome gas mileage.
I love my truck. It has everything I could need or want for a work truck, it handles well in the rain, snow, etc.. Have not had any major issues with it so far, will never own any other brand of truck, I like the power windows and seats. I like the color and horsepower it has. It also has the best gas mileage of any other truck I have owned. I would highly recommend this kind of truck to all my friends, family and coworkers.
We have an awesome vehicle.
There is really nothing wrong with my vehicle. It's a great vehicle, we've never gotten stuck anywhere. It's great in the snow. It is a great vehicle to own period. The only thing I don't like is it is a gas hog. On the bright side we are able to afford it. I also love that its plenty big enough for my fiancé, our daughter, and myself, plus we can fit two extra people in there with us and still have plenty of room.
Ignition will not accept a foreign key or device into it vehicle will shut down.
Great on gas, hauls trail. My truck is great on gas, the motor has a lot of power it hauls my trailer no problem. My only complaint is that my automatic transmission gets stuck in 2nd gear after I have been driving on the highway for approximately say 50 to 90 straight miles. It seems once the tranny gets warmed up it wants to stick in 2nd gear. I love my big little truck!
It is a nice vehicle we take very good care of it we wash and wax it very often.
I am a mechanic so I work on all my vehicles I do the basic maintenance so I really don't run into to many problems I drive about a mile to work so I don't spend to much time in my truck it is 4 wheel drive which works good because I have to go in early to plow our Ford is a nice car very well taken care of my wife drives 2 miles to work it runs good no problems with it.
Review of my Chevy Silverado the best truck I have ever owned.
The truck has 250, 000 miles on it and still runs like it is brand new. It has a corvette engine in it and goes faster than some cars. I am so happy with the truck. It was also a work truck for construction for 15 years and is always reliable and will haul just about anything. It was the best truck I have ever owned and would not hesitate to buy a Chevy Silverado again.
Moderate performance, reliable, and comfortable.
Performance is great when maintained properly. There have been no real huge problems for how many miles my truck has. Needs tune up every year, lee spring shackles checked regularly and oil changes every three or four thousand miles to maintain performance. Only a few blown fuses. Interior lighting is moderate, fairly spacious rear seat even with 1. 5 cab.
This Silverado is a very disappointing and expensive buy due to maintenance.
It is too old and too big I have to park away from people. The turns are way too wide, the battery dies too easy, and the truck guzzles has like nobody's business. I just hate it I want a new car asap. If you do get this car it takes $60 a week to gas up and you cannot go long distance at all or your going to be spending a lot of money.
Chevrolet Silverado hands down best vehicle.
My Chevrolet Silverado is a great running reliable truck. The 5. 3 l v8 is a beast when it come to hauling. We travel a lot so when it comes to a dependable vehicle we always take the Silverado rather than our other vehicles. In my opinion this is one of the best made trucks available on the market. Sleek, comfortable, and good looking.
It's great knowing it handles impact well and keep my family safe in a crash.
There has not been a problem with it since we got it and it does well on gas. It is also sturdy and lessens my worry of an accident. It sits high and has plenty of room for me and my family. The seats are very comfortable and the radio works well. If anything happened to this vehicle I'd definitely get another, possibly a newer model.
A 2001 Chevrolet Silverado, crew cab, towing package
I bought this truck, approx 7 years ago, and have had very few problems with the vehicle, it is a strong running truck, and has been very reliable, considering the odometer reads almost 400000! A crew cab makes it, comfortable for the whole family! A very nice truck, with the towing package, and "Silverado" standards! Great vehicle!!!
Chevy Silverado, not just a man's work truck anymore!
I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado 1500 long bed. I bought it used with 35,000 miles on it I have had no significant problems other than having to change the brakes out. It's been used to haul everything from groceries to a houseful if furniture, but mainly it's my go to daily drive! I'm a woman who loves her truck!
Well-kept 01 Silverado with less than 100, 000 miles.
2001 Silverado 1500, base model, 4. 3 liter v6 engine, automatic transmission, cruise control, towing package. Has aluminum diamond plate toolbox, rain guards, and big shield. Tires have 75% tread on 17 inch chrome rims. Enjoy a very smooth ride with cold ac and pioneer stereo. Only has 98376 original miles.
I am very impressed with how comfortable this vehicle is for long trips.
My vehicle is very dependable and safe. I have had very few mechanical problems with my vehicle. My Silverado is comfortable for long trips or daily trips as well. My time with this vehicle has been almost effortless. I would strongly recommend this vehicle to others for purchase as it is very economical.
17 years old 244k miles still ticking.
17 years old has 240k miles and still runs strong.
Just keep up on its normal tune ups.
I am the second owner and I got it with 218k and have had it just over a year myself.
About to do some ball joint changes noticing the tires starting to wear.
It's a beast and debate wanting a newer truck.
It's lasted over 300,000 miles thankfully since we don't have the money to replace it as of yet.
Usually drive fords but after having this chevy my husband and I both like chevy's now. However it does have a few issues such as a leaky power steering hose that no one can figure out where the leak is coming from. The parts also seem pretty expensive when my husband tries to work on it.
Rust stinks, but lots of great features that makes up for it.
Rusts easy, but the engine is will go forever. This is an amazing vehicle and I highly recommend Chevy to anyone that wants a reliable vehicle. Chevy's are really dependable, and the interior is really nice as well. They make good work trucks, and have lots of options such as leather.
01 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 base review.
I have the base 01 Silverado 1500 that does not have cruise control, electric windows, or electric locks. Other than those minor faults it is very reliable and performs well. It is the regular cab and short bed, and I love simplicity, but I am just missing those couple of luxuries.
My beautiful no matter what.
My truck is great it is well used and after two right years of sitting it started up needs a little work but no major problems I have had her for the whole time she is a gas guzzler but after a good tune up she runs fine. My biggest problem with her is the mileage I put on her.
Chevy Silverado 4 wheel drive.
Our Chevy Silverado is a solid, well built truck. We live in an area where we get snow and ice every winter. Having the 4x4 is wonderful. The extended cab helps fit our whole family. It is a comfy ride. It is a smooth ride. This is our first truck and it is been great.
Reliable on the road, it handles well in all types of road conditions.
I really enjoy how reliable it is. The only major issue is the gas mileage is only about 13 miles per gallon. I would also recommend having running boards for ease of entering and exiting the vehicle. Otherwise, l love it. It is a smooth ride and great for hauling.
Ugly old faithful mostly black truck.
It is old so it burns gas and oil. The interior needs some work. It definitely is due for a paint job. The air conditioner only works on freezing and there is no heat. There is a leak on the drivers side where the seal is dry rotted. Every time it rains it drips.
Very good shape for its age.
Very good shape for its age, very little rust. Runs very good, good strong motor. Never been in a reek, good tires has 300 horsepower interior is very clean color silver interior gray tires are all season with low mileage six and a half foot bed with bed liner.
Truck review and survey for me.
Drives and rides great. Very comfortable and a lot of room. Go camping with a lot of storage space in bed for everything I own. Turns great. Sounds good with aftermarket exhaust. Many great years to come with this awesome truck. Great color and easily visible.
Strong vehicle holds the road well.
The only problems I have had are the front detail light which many people experience, other than that the tailgate assembly was recalled the truck has a strong motor and a smooth ride the wheelbase is much wider than the Ford ranger and holds the road well.
The truck is still in good condition & would not have an issue selling it.
The Chevy has been a very reliable vehicle. Just recently had work done on air conditioning. This has been the only major repair I have had to do.
Have also had oil changed and have kept up with maintenance.
Body and paint are still in good condition.
My dependable truck has never failed or left me stranded.
I never have any problems with my truck. It has a lot of power, gets good gas mileage. Is as comfortable as a 2001 can be, has no bells and whistles but I do not need those. I will keep it until it no longer runs because it has always been very reliable.
Runs very quietly and have not spent a lot of money on upkeep.
It has some transmission problems when you drive over 65 for more than 10 miles. Otherwise a very good vehicle. Has plenty of room and ability to haul stuff. Have not spent a lot of money on repairs. It runs very quietly and was originally a work truck.
With routine maintenance this truck will last you a very long time.
I like that it is roomy on the inside. I like that it has 217,000 miles and is still running. I dislike the way the back doors open, it makes it very difficult with a child in a car seat. I dislike that the windshield wiper switch breaks easily.
It is a very reliable vehicle. With it being a truck, it is very versatile.
It is extremely reliable. Even though it is up there in miles and years my costs for repairs has been relatively low. Several of the general maintenance tasks I can do myself so that's good. Really appreciate it's safety rating is high.
Chevy Silverado great condition and reliable. Drives six people comfortably.
I love my Chevy truck! The only thing that even makes me want a different car is that my truck requires a lot of fuel. Other than that I would have no reason to look for another choice in transportation. Chevrolet is a reliable maker.
It's 4x4, used in all weather
I like that it can be used in all types of weather. I also like that i can easily haul large items. I like that i can go through a tank of gas in a week, good for an older truck. Gas prices are expensive though and my tank is large.
It has running boards and when it looked very smart and nice!
I haven't had any problems with the truck, it has leather reclining heated seats with a club cab. I am very happy with it is performance and gas mileage. The exterior paint however, is fading, so that is not looking very good.
Good for hauling things to and from. It does well with heavy objects and is good for pulling a trailer.
It's been dependable, only with minor issues here and there. I like it because it gets me where I need to go, and I dislike it because over time annoying thing like a/c, or door handle decide to stop working.
The fuel gauge is going out and so you must watch the mileage for accurate gas usage.
I love my truck. It has a lot of miles on it but still runs very well. I have only one complaint with it the fuel gauge is going out but that is a minor problem I can deal with by watching the mileage.
Easy to drive! Good resale and value and has lasted a long time!
It's very easy to drive and keep up on the maintenance. I am able to haul my music gear around. And the rear seat folds down so I can take passengers. The front seat has enough room for three people.
It has the 5.3 liter V8 automatic standard cab short bed. And gets between 16-17 mpg
It's been a good truck . I have 190000 miles so far . So far I replaced water pump alternator and the gear shift had a short in the wiring . It rides ok just the front end bounces hard on ruff roads
That it is good on gas for being a truck.
I like that it is a truck. The color is maroon. I do not like that it only has half doors and you have to open the front doors before the back doors. That the front seat can not fit another person.
Good old reliable Chevy trucks.
I drive a 2001 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 ls extended cab and I love it perfect 5. 3 vortex engine v8 American muscle nothing like the sound of that ending roaring down any street god bless America.
That it is long lasting and stylish
I like the fact that my Chevrolet is still in good running order 17 years later. The body style is the reason I bought it. I still get about 20 miles to the gallon . I have no complaints
Not for sale and it is so plain just a work truck.
My truck has over 240, 000 miles on it try to change oil on regular basis always add Lucas oil treatment last check had 150 lbs cylinder pressure I really love driving my pictures.
It's not pretty but it runs.
I do not like the rust. I do not like that it's not big enough to carry my family in comfort. I like the gas mileage and it is easy to keep clean with the rubber floor boards.
Has enough room to seat 6 comfortably. Hauling cargo is easy.
As long as you keep maintaining the vehicle it will last long time. I have owned a truck every since I have been driving. I just love Chevrolet trucks for their dependability.
Chevy Silverado 1500 is a great vehicle.
It is a great vehicle. It's higher off the ground and it can pull almost anything. Plus having 4x4 isn't half bad either. Especially in the country when you could get stuck.
Long Lasting Reliable Truck
Its 2018 its still running, for the time we had it it has been great, only in the later 9+ years did it start to fall apart, A/C and Breaks, but nothing super serious.
A very good truck and great on gas. Very dependable.
It is a very dependable vehicle and has sentimental value. Plus it is very useful when moving is needed. Good on gas and minimal problems in all the years I've had it.
That it has more trunk and passenger space than it seems.
I wish it was 4 wheel drive back window does not slide open. I like the fact it is a Chevy I like the space in the cab the center counsel is big and lots of storage.
Yup trucks and what not yup..
Runs really well and has never let me down. Parts and fluids are cheap. The bed can hold quite a bit which comes in handy for moving furniture. Trucks trucks trucks.
How it runs. What it takes to keep it running.
The extended cab is a must with a family of 4. The only thing I do not like is how much gas it uses. It has a lot of legroom for all passengers in the extended cab.
It is very reliable and has never had any major issues.
The performance, reliability, and comfort has been great for the life of the vehicle. There are no problems with it at all. The only negative is the gas mileage.

Where it is an older vehicle, the maintenance cost is getting high. I broke off a shock in the back. I have a rush build up at the corner panels of the doors.
It's a great family car and has enough space for my family of 6.
I love that has the extended cab and it shifts really easy from 2 wheel drive 4 wheel drive. The only thing I do not care for is there are no running boards.
The ac do not work. I fixed the belt and it keeps breaking.
It's a great truck. I think Chevy trucks have great motors and are easy to work on. My brake lines went out and they was easy to locate and fix right away.
It is very reliable considering it is an 2001.
It is a very good truck to cruise in around your area. It's also a good work truck when it comes to work. On gas it is pretty good considering it is a v8.
It is a quality vehicle that has performed well for over a decade and a half.
My truck is very comfortable. It is a bit old, but quite reliable. As a highway vehicle it is more comfortable than many newer vehicles I have ridden in.
As old as it is, the mileage and is well maintained.
It is a really nice truck that hasn't had a lot of issues even at its age. Granted the mileage is low. Will probably drive until it's falling apart,
