2005 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Extended Cab 4WD

- I don't think you could find a car that runs, this smooth. Much less a truck
- As always, gas mileage with a truck is not the best.
I've been waiting twelve years to finally be able to afford this truck, and it was worth the wait. The luxury put into this chevy is top notch. I test drove (the other truck...) and comfort was definitely a selling factor. The gm employee special going on right now is a dream come true. MSRP for my Silverado LS 1500, loaded with options was 34,000. I walked away with a selling price of 25,500. If you haven't shopped for a Silverado, I highly recommend it....read morehide

- having to park it at night and sleep
my last new truck was a chevy I still have it just refurbished it spent more than I paid for it originally I liked it so well, this one is even better I think it's a keeper too. If your looking for a truck that will make you smile even the day after you remember signing up for that payment book this is the one no regrets I wouldn't let them have it back even if they gave me more than I owed on it. I got it Friday evening 5/13/05 best Friday the 13th I ever had and I have since put about 300 miles on it, I find all kind of reasons to drive it. LOL We have an expedition and this Chevy has a smoother ride and the chevy even has the heavy duty suspension option. go figure someone is using their noodle to build vehicles....read morehide

- Good useable room inside crew cab
- poor performance
My 2005 truck was sold to tow a travel trailer and has all the towing options. It delivered with a 5300CC/2.23 axle and 17inch wheels, and it has NO tow power...at 55mph it shifts to 2nd gear on overpasses on the interstate. On long grades thru hilly country it rides 2nd gear for absolutely miles without shifting. Gas mileage is terrible at 6mph on the highway. I am comparing to my 2002 with 4800CC V8 and 3.73 axle/16in wheels. I got 18mph on the same route, same trailer and it rarely even shifted to 3rd gear.
I'm also very disappointed that the rear brakes have been changed to drum. I was given some goofey story about the parking brake not working. They should have solved that problem with all the previous models. I tow and I don't need the brake fade from 60year old technology. I have been a loyal Chev fan for over 35 years and have never owned anything else, but I'm now looking around for my next truck after only 2200 miles.
I have filed a complaint with the dealer and asked for a gear change, lets hope it works out for the better....read morehide
