1998 Chevrolet Silverado Z71 5.7 from North America
Never buy again
Intake gasket at 128000 miles.
Fuel pump at 130000 miles.
Numerous cap and rotor buttons.
ABS going out.
Wipers work when they want to.
Tie rods, idler arm, pittman arm, ball joints.
I have owned 2 GM vehicles and will never own a third. They are a money pit.
The motors are strong and reliable, and that is about it. They are not a work truck.
With GM being as big of a company as they are, seems to me like they could build a more reliable truck. Especially with the ABS problems they have, it's a wonder I'm still alive due to brake failure.
Sorry GM, but I will never waste money again on one of your vehicles. No wonder every one is buying foreign cars and trucks; they know how to do it better.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Are you serious? You bought a truck with 120k, and your complaining that its worn out? Those are very typical repairs for a vehicle of any make with that number of miles. I'm not pro Chevy either. I've got a '07 Silverado that is a total piece of junk. I'd be thrilled if it made it 70k let alone 170k. In my opinion, the best Chevy's were the '88-'98's.
