2005 Chevrolet C1500 LS Crew Cab 5.3L from North America


I would buy one again


OnStar messed up, causing the rear view mirror lights to blink.

Has a vacuum whistle when I "gun it" hard.

Something rattles in the steering.

General Comments:

For the most part, I am pleased with the 2005 Silverado 1500 Crew Cab. Some problems that were eventually handled by the dealer.

2005 Chevrolet C1500 WT 4.3 V6 from North America


Strong Truck


Nothing is wrong with the truck at this point.

General Comments:

This is a very nice good running truck, great strong AC, seats are great, several options even for a base modle WT. V6 gets 357 miles to a tank on a 26 gl tank which I think is good for a truck. Ride can use some help, very bumpy shocks.

To the first commenter: Use your head before making a comment like that.

The reviewer has a 26 gallon TANK, meaning that he doesn't run it bone dry to 26 gallons. 21 to 22 gallons at fuel ups is a more reasonable estimate if you run the gage down to "E", which means 16-17 MPG, probably a mix of city highway driving. I should know because I just sold a 1993 GMC with the same V6 and 4-speed automatic. Nothing to brag about, but not as bad as compact or mid-sized 4x4's. Everyone who is familiar with pickup trucks knows that smaller pickups are usually as bad or worse for fuel economy. 29 MPG even for a compact 2WD pickup is a lie, and you know it.

I'm not anti-Ford or Chevy till I die, but I have no tolerance for people telling tall tales and fables about their cars.

2005 Chevy 1500 4.3. Yeah it’s a gas guzzler, 13-14 MPG is good combined on a tuned engine. I’m an owner of this and my info is first hand. What are ya going to do (?), I only get 11.7 MPG and I drive it easy. At least gas is cheap. Thank you Trump.

Maybe a 6 cylinder 2WD work truck gets good mileage. You guys have the 6 also?

"At least gas is cheap"

Yeah, well not for long. Expect that to change in very near future. Their goal is to force everyone into electric vehicles by increasing the taxes on fossil fuels to the point where it will be too expensive to continue driving a gas fueled vehicle at least on daily basis.

Save the planet! Except third world countries who can continue to pollute because, well, you know...

What you said is nothing more than a conspiracy theory, not even loosely based on reality.

They will reduce emissions. If it hits $20 I will start consolidating my trips a bit. Maybe.

2005 Chevrolet C1500 Silverado 4.3ltr Vortec V6 from North America


Great truck and great towing power from the V6


Normal Maintenance.

Fuel Pump died at about 235,000 miles.

General Comments:

This truck has been very reliable, only left me stranded once and that was because of the fuel pump.

It handles great for a truck.

Comfortable seats are nice for long trips to the cabin.

Very roomy.

Nice power for towing a boat or four-wheelers.

Very few repairs, none major (I've known this truck since 1998)

Over 200k miles on a 2005 model. How many miles do you drive a day?
