The best running truck I've ever owned
Replaced the battery; knew it was bad when I bought the truck.
Tranny replaced with a used tranny by the dealer before I bought it at 215,000.
Rear end replaced with used rear end by the dealer before I bought it at 215,000.
Pivot arm replaced by previous owner before traded in at 215,000.
Tune up done at 215,000.
1992 Chevrolet K1500 Extended Cab.
350 V8 true dual exhaust, auto transmission, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and locks. 60/40 split bench on front folding bench in rear.
Starts up great at -10, -20, or -30 below. Fires up every time.
The V8 rumble can't ever be replaced, and the power is amazing; at 218,000 it runs very well
13 MPG city, 18-20 MPG highway, and it rolls down the freeway at an idle.
This model is set up with the complete tow package with electric braking unit, and was used to pull a 5th wheeler.
I drive it as a daily driver on the freeway, and it shifts from 2wd to 4wd while in motion seamlessly.
This model also has the oil cooler mounted as part of the radiator.
This truck was made from 1988 to 2002 without changing that much, so parts are easy to find and repairs are very cheap.
I love this truck. I've found the older trucks to be very reliable, and I'll run this one till I can't fix it. Or get parts to fix it :D
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
