2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Regular Cab 4WD
There are 4 user reviews for the LS Standard Box trim shown below
- Very roomy, lots of power, great work truck
- Too pricey and too large
Looks good but front of truck is boxy, hard to park and difficult to see over the hood. I usually park as far from other vehicles as I can, and I park facing out, it's easier to pull forward, came close to scrapping other cars trying to back out. Great as a work truck, great power, pretty smooth ride (gets a little shakey in idle). But next time I'll get a Toyota Tundra....read morehide

- Does well on fuel about 16 all around driving abd 20 on the highway, w/ K&N and Flowmaster ext
- Ride is terrible, vibrates and rides rough
I have had my truck a 2005 Chev Silverado Z-71 in the shop four times for the rough ride and vibration. They have a Technical Service Bulletin that says to add three to five hundred pounds of weight to the rear in the bed to see if that eliminates the vibration and if that is the problem then you have to live with it because that the way they ride. My dealer has tried to help by changing tires and is now checking on replacing the shocks to see if that will help. One GM district rep approved paying half on a fibergless camper shell to add weight to the rear of another truck, never heard if this helped. The weight helps mine a bit but I don't see having to ride around with 300 pounds of excess weught in a new truck so you can drive it without being shaken to death....read morehide

- Has a lot of leg room, front and back. Ok fuel mileage. cruises just fine on the autobahn
- Wipers go crazy on their own even when off. Fabric doesnt wear well with car seats.
Several parts have had to be replaced. First the drive line split in half, then an air bag wire got pinched in the seat. Had to replace the pullies cause they were making too much noise.
Otherwise the truck is perfect for hualing the family around. And makes moving from place to place easy. It wont get stuck in snow.
I'm in the military, stationed in Germany. If I didnt have a truck I dont know what I would do. With the amount of luggage required for two adults, a baby and a toddler. I'm glad I have my truck.
If I was ever in an accident, especially over here. I trust that my chevy truck will keep me alive. A BMW would end up being squashed like a bug on my bumper.
As for those who dont like to read their owners manual. Chevy has changed a few things with the front bumper. The air dam is removable for off roading. Now as for hitting rocks and stumps and such. Sounds like you might need a lift or bigger tires.
Is there anything that I would change? I would get rid of the govener and Lin-X the underside....read morehide

- fuel economy was ok, for awhile..
- they're ok..
I had a 1999 long bed 4X4 with the 5.3L and A/T. It used a lot of fuel. And, as for what the dude in N.C. says about the front bumper scraping, GM sacrificed off-road capability for aerodynamics, as I had the same problems. My 2003 4X4 with the 5.3L and A/T had more power and got better highway mileage, for the first 20,000 miles. After 20K, mileage dropped. The 2006 is basically the same as my 2003, without the four-wheel disc brakes. Let me just say that the current Ford is a better truck than the Chevy, but the Tundra continues to be the best pick of the current lot. Both of my Chevys had to go back to the dealer for correction of computer issues and transmission problems....read morehide
