1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 V8 from North America
Obviously don't recommend this. Major repairs sholdn't be necessary
ABS motor went out just after warranty expired. Almost $850 repair required. I just pulled the fuse instead of repairing it. With the fuse in, the motor ran continuously, even with the car shut off!
Now, coolant is getting into engine, either head gasket or (hopefully) intake manifold. Could also be cracked block. This car was well cared for (all services at specified intervals. There is no reason that this engine should be gone like this at under 200,000 miles! $1500 repair estimate.
Also, after the dealer did some kind of recall on the parking brake, they now say the cable system is rusted out and needs to be replaced, requiring the rear axle to come off to do it! $750 repair estimate.
Radio lights all burned out at 100,000 miles. Can't replace bulbs, need new radio.
Anyone want to buy it?
Truck WOULD have been great were it not for costly repairs. Ran very well up to 120,000 miles, but should have run for much longer.
Very noisy interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
