Changed the oil once a year. Yes Review Date: 19th August, 2009 Year of manufacture 1999 First year of ownership 2003 Most recent year of ownership 2009 Engine and transmission 2. As compared to other 4 bangers on the market. I will keep it until it completely rusts out or the motor or trans give up. The extended-cab Silverado's rear seat has real space for three real people. Small rear window water leak started about 150K miles, fixed with silicone every few years. The gas mileage is great, insurance is cheap for me at least and it has maintained great reliability.
Multiple patches, bands and tiger tape, bailing wire etc holds the exhaust together. Nothing major broke but the fuel pump and the distributor broke 3 times. General Comments: Great and reliable vehicle to have. Hood latch can be tricky and needed adjustment. I don't think the power steering pump even works anymore, but hey it still steers down the road.
Actual purchase terms may vary. There is always room to make improvements. The 1999 Chevrolet Silverado was offered with both manual and automatic transmissions. Ice cream mess in 3rd row. Truck is on its third water pump. Never changed the tranny fluid, antifreeze, rear end oil, or greased anything.
Safety was never a point worthy of applause for the Chevrolet S-10, and the early years of this generation were light on safety equipment. Multiple wheel bearing replacements over the years, U-joints and everything in the front end have been replaced. Wish it had a long box, didn't realize that until after I bought it. The cabin offers plenty of space with enough head and leg room for both the front and rear occupants. Cup holder broke at 100K; replaced it myself with one from a wreck. At 51000 the water pump went out again. General Comments: Besides the loud noise of the engine, everything is perfect with my S-10!! This full-sized pickup has not only been the best-selling vehicle in the Chevrolet line, it's the best-selling vehicle made by General Motors.
The Z85 suspension is designed for improved handling while towing a trailer, and the Silverado can tow a trailer of up to 8200 lbs. I guess I just won't recline. In other words I'm not done wearing this one out and a new one won't do anything the old won't do! General Comments: Despite everything that happened. Does this mean Chevy has forgotten its massive customer base and gone upscale? Model year 1999 Year of manufacture 1999 First year of ownership 2001 Most recent year of ownership 2007 Engine and transmission V6 Automatic Distance when acquired 17000 miles Most recent distance 91000 miles Previous car Chevrolet beretta Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? I would love to have a new vehicle truck but just can't justify cost vs operations delivered. It kinda sounds like a diesel.
One rear door latch of the quad cab has not worked for years and the door will not open. The truck rides and handles like a dream. A new and more rigid frame anchors a larger, stronger body structure and bigger cargo beds. In a comparison test we conducted for 2001, the S-10 finished fifth out of five trucks. This third door tended to rattle on broken pavement, though.
I hope it stays that way in the years to come. Alas, we were never particularly impressed with this S-10, finding it to be inferior to competing small trucks from Dodge, Ford, Nissan and Toyota. I used it to learn how to drive manual and it's still going strong. Edmunds© is a trademark of Edmunds. I bought this truck back in 2002 as a puddle jumper for commuting back and forth to work. Another typical problem with s-10's wheel hub assembly bearings had to have both replaced 35 and the driver side again at 75. Typical steering wander for the year can be aided with after market parts.
. I figured that once it died I would buy another. I still love this truck. We didn't have the remote for it, so it sat for a week until we figured out how to reset it. General Comments: I bought this truck brand new 17 years ago.
Most used-vehicle shoppers will be looking at the second generation. All I have done is preventative maintenance and nothing else, I've never had issues with it except a new exhaust system last year. Catalytic converter replaced at 100K miles. Dashboard is solid plastic piece, and has worn and cracked all the way through. Most repairs have been expected wear items.
