1997 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 5.7 from North America
The older the rock gets, the more it breaks down..
My 97' Z71 now has 175,000 I can't complain too much, it just seems like I am having the same problems every one else is having, SAFETY ISSUES, the hard spot in the steering when turning to the right that come from the factory that way, they just kept saying ”get it aligned” well I did, but it was never fixed right or recalled and finally run out of warranty and dealers to argue with to get it fixed, so it will probably end me up in a ditch because of it, and the ABS kicking in when ever it pleases are at the top of the list.
Other than that I have had the intake gaskets replaced twice and is right now in the shop again for gaskets, also replaced 1 water pump, the clunk in the transmission when shifting from 1st to 2nd gear, door handles, windshield wiper motor is all I've done to it. Mile for mile relatively cheap driving, I do wish that Chevy would stand behind their prouducts more warranty/recall wise.
$600 new tires last month, $100 wheel alignment last month, $700 intake gasket repair and what ever problems that are found with the ABS which I'm sure will not be cheap this month... MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ME!!!.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
