Highlight of my truck it has over 280,000 miles on it and it is an 05.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

Well for starters I am a 3rd generation Chevrolet owner from my grandfather to my father now to me. My truck has over 280,000 miles and still running strong what I love about Chevy is u can find parts anywhere and affordable another thing is it is easy to work on when I need too. It is an older model so I do not have any high tech stuff. I plan to upgrade to a 2020 2500hd soon. The trucks are really the most dependable longest lasting trucks on the road today.

The ac is excellent. It would literally freeze you out if you left it on.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

I really enjoy driving this vehicle. Pros: The ac and heater are excellent. A lot of room on the inside and in the box. It gets pretty good gas mileage compared to other trucks. Cons: The motor has a slight lifter tick. This is because from 03 to present, Chevy used cheap lifters so after about 90,000 miles it begins to tick. Just a slight tick. Other than that it's a pretty good truck

Easily My Favorite Vehicle I've Owned

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

I bought this vehicle used. I have upgraded the tires as well as the headlights and taillights. It drives and handles extremely well. The gas mileage is a little better than what I expected. I can get 16 to 20 city miles on a quarter of a gas. Highway miles are excellent. I've not had any major problems with the vehicle since I've owned it.

has 4,8L engine revs faster than the 5.3L engine

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

runs great have not ran into any problems besides that it's a gas water just like every other truck, the interior of course is not the best but could be updated with a couple things, pretty spacious in the front but in the back not very, love that it has an LS 4.8 engine can rev faster than the 5.3 but of course the 5.3 will push more

- Alexis D

It is very good on gas! And has many colors to pick from

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

It's a good car but can have many problems but easy to get fixed. It's cheap and affordable car. It will get you where you need to go with no problem. The car is good on gas. It is a good car to travel. It is kind of small. The problems that it has it can be torn down easily. You have to drive responsible and it will last long.

Black 2005 Chevrolet Silverado

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

poor mileage. Otherwise worked well for almost 15 years. 160,000 miles and few problems. Seats enough people for travel, good for towing, useful for moving. Black interior gets hot in the summer, but the car is comfortable and spacious. Fisheyes in the side mirrors make parking and backing up easier.

- Jacqueline B

Overall performances the truck

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS

The only problems is the meter sometimes goes out but other than that it gets great gas mileage.I really like the two wheel drive mode because it is easy to drive around the city and does well on the highway. I also do not have problems with it starting up during the winter time.

- Jake T
