2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Owner Reviews & Problems
Reviews For Chevrolet Silverado 1500
The gas mileage is terrible. Average mpg is 13. 8.
The 2004 Chevy 1500 has a lot of problems when you get around 100, 000 miles. The transmission had to be rebuilt and I have replaced almost everything to do with the drivetrain and suspension. Interior is nice and It's a very ergonomic design however there is limited movement on the seat adjustments. The rear seats are comfortable and I have taken passengers on long rides without complaints. The steering is nice and smooth but the turn radius is not the best and I find myself pulling more "w-turns" than "y-turns". Also make sure you have some weight in the bed when Its raining otherwise you will find yourself spinning around every turn just like snow covered roads.
Most dependable vehicle I ever owned and most interior room.
A very reliable truck with enough power to haul or pull its weight no matter the motor. Has built in tow capability controls. The dual air controls are really nice. Very roomy inside with plenty of room in cab. I can have the seat all the way back and passengers in back have plenty of room. I like the ability to be able to put it in 4WD while I am driving. I like working on it myself because there's plenty of room to get to everything and you do not need a wide range of tools to do it. Most parts are 100, 000 mile parts so they last for years. Most dependable vehicle I have ever owned. Has no problem going off-road or in bad weather even pulling a trailer in ice.
Dependable, long lasting and holds good money value even over time.
This Chevrolet Silverado has been the best vehicle I have owned over the years. It has been reliable, low maintenance and handles pot holes and wet road conditions exceptionally well. I have owned a variety of cars and trucks and this is the best value and dependable of the cars and trucks I have owned. It has plenty of space for passengers and supplies. I keep the oil changed consistently since owning it and the engine runs like new. Other than oil changes, new tires, occasional tune ups & brake maintenance are about all that is needed.
Love our Chevy Silverado!
Overall a great truck! There was a recall on a cable for the tailgate. After being fixed we have had no problems with it. Very reliable truck! Haven't had any major issues. The plastic handles on the back doors have cracked and needed to be replaced. Blaming that on age of truck and cold MN winters. The kids would like more leg room in the back seat. I believe there is in the newer models. Tows our boat and snowmobiles with ease. Love that we can haul our 4-wheeler in the box with the tailgate closed. Love our Chevy!
My brakes started to squeak. I had original pads. It has almost 180, 000 miles.
I love my truck. The only thing I do not like about it is the amount of gas it uses. The ride is very comfortable, has lots of power, and is my trustworthy vehicle. My truck just has the basic features, but I am not one for all of the luxuries. I have a bed liner that is a must as it keeps the bed of your truck nice, if you ever want to take it out. I just had my brake pads changed, and I had the original pads and I was told I took very good care of my truck. I have almost 180, 000 miles, so this was amazing to me.
The 2004 Chevy Silverado 8 years down the road.
I purchase my vehicle about 8 years ago preowned. It has been a pretty reliable truck. I am currently at 165k miles and am starting to see a few of the normal problems that I have been told by mechanics are typical for my Silverado. I have recently developed an exhaust leak and a rear main seal leak and an oil pan leak from a worn gasket. My paint just started to peel off this year. I am at the point where I am trying to decide if I want to look into a newer vehicle or invest into a new transmission and engine.
5. 3 vortec v8 Chevrolet motor. The best.
Chevrolet z71 quad cab is the best truck there is. It has a 5. 3 liter vortec v8 motor that has given me no problems to speak of and has over 200, 000 miles on motor and transmission. The only real problems I have ever encountered was worn tires and a 4 wheel drive switch that I changed for 20$. I am still driving this truck to this day and will being doing so for another three to four years.
This has been a great solid truck!
My vehicle has been very reliable. It handles great in the snow and mud. The only problem that I have had that is that the signal indicator where the cruise control button is needs replaced. It will occasionally take the vehicle off cruise control when I indicate a left turn. The other items that I have had to fix are due to normal wear and tear. My vehicle is over the 200k mile mark.
Nice work truck, a 2004 with 170, 000 and still going strong.
It has lots of miles on it,, still looks good for being a working truck.. Have not had to replace very many things. Runs good and has lots of power to trailer a boat. It has power windows and door locks, no real problem with any of the power. Has over 170, 000 miles and still going strong. Just had to replace the seat cover. Radio and all electronics still going strong.
This truck runs great the fuel economy is not really good but other than that it's a great vehicle that got a nice camper shell on it and I'll haul fire with a couple times a year but other than that it's a great vehicle
This truck runs great very dependable pulls my trailer with ease go to the coast once a year and pull it up over the mountains between Vallejo and Santa Cruz never any major problems I did replace a fuel pump one time or the water pump one time and other than that the headliner is starting to slip out on the sides but other than that it's a perfect vehicle
