      This truck has a special place in our family and it will be passed down.

      2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

      The Silverado was the first truck and only new vehicle I have ever bought. It is a 2003 and to this day I still rely on this truck to get me around. It has been to every trip out of state with my family and I. For performance we had to replace a few things engine wise. The fuel pump gave out, transmission last year gave out, the usually maintenance was always done in order for me to have a working truck. I have had to replace bulbs, my door lock on the door finally stopped working but that was an easy fix. This year my air conditioner stopped working and got that fixed as well. My truck has seen it all, from moving state to state, vacations, kids growing up, fixes and repairs, I still would never get another truck.

      The Chevrolet Silverado is head and shoulders above the competition.

      2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

      There are not any problems, it is a great truck and has changed my perception on trucks, fun to drive, great for personal use and work, not to mention Chevrolet is very reliable and dependable. Anybody who is thinking or has thought about switching from a car to a truck and does not know enough or just has not done it yet, you need to make the switch, it is a whole new world having a truck, especially one as reliable and dependable as a Chevy.

      Durable long lasting vehicle:)

      2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

      I absolutely LOVE my truck!! It's great for general running around, moving things, and traveling. The gas mileage actually isn't too bad. It's very durable and comfortable. A few little fixes here and there... the most recent being a shackle that broke because of all the potholes:( would definitely buy a truck like this again!!

      Satisfied Chevy truck owner!

      2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

      Alternator issues, back seat is too narrow, power window motor needed to be replaced, spare tire is difficult to access, paint began fading 2 years ago, very reliable, easy to fix under the hood, driven over 215k miles and it is still running strong. Premium Speaker system is surprisingly good.

      - Liana A

      Extremely good and reliable truck

      2003 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

      My truck is very comfortable and spacious, I have not had many problems with it other than replacing the breaks in it a couple times. I have gotten it coated so there is no rust underneath. I very much enjoy my Silverado and I recommend it to anybody that is looking to buy a truck.
