A Great vehicle by GM Lover from Fort Worth on 05/18/2010. Trim: 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Regular Cab Short Bed 4WD, Owned 10 years.
Pros: I think this truck has surprised me because it is the only chevy I have ever liked as much as the GMCs I have pruchased. I love this truck, she has 274,000 miles on her; and still no transmission problems.
Cons: Anyone who has owned a GM vehicle knows they have trouble with their electronics within the vehicles. This one has the odometer and full gadge out.
Overall review: My second favorite vehicle ever. Only behind my first truck, a 1989 GMC SLE ext cab truck.

219,000 and another 100,000 to go. by B Miller, Utah on 07/16/2009. Trim: 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Ext. Cab Short Bed 4WD, Owned 8 years.
Pros: 219,000mi and runs great. Easy to keep clean in and out. Pulls trailers just fine and very few problems outside of parts just wearing out. Pretty east to work in the engin compartment once the air system is out of the way.
Cons: As most Chev's leather drivers seat started falling apart where you get in and out. No headlight overide, what ? Headlights or daytime run. lights always on. Not helpfull in a blizzard or at the drive- in. The ABS ... BS come on Chev. Man Up.
Overall review: This has been well maintained and I strongly believe it will go another 100,000. I'v had to replace most components but alternator, water pump, and pullys I replaced because I couldn't figure out a mis-alighned power steering pully. They were all the original parts though, I figure it was due anyhow. I did put in new injectors at 200,000 not because they failed but I havent had a payment in 6 years, why not a little love for the old girl? I'm running an average of 14.5 MPG and I drive very mellow, I'm not sure about these guys getting 22-24. 17 if the whole tank is highway. It's been a darn good pickup and I assure you I have USED it as one.

Chevy Z71 Nightmare!!!!!! by Mike (SC) on 07/29/2002. Trim: 1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS Ext. Cab Short Bed 4WD, Owned 3 years.
Pros: Styling/Handling, decent factory audio system, gas mileage
Cons: Lots of mechanical problems
Overall review: The truck ran great until about 60000 miles, then one day out of the blue on the way to work the transmission falls completely out of it (should not have happened on a truck thats has never seen off road 4wd or pulled anything heavier than a 4 wheeler!) New tranny cost me 2100 dollars. Next the fuel injection went out on it and that cost me another 800 bucks. Then I had to replace the head gasket at about 70000 miles which set me back another 300 bucks. Now the engine skips constantly, the dealership kept it for 19 days!!!! trying to figure out why, that cost me another 700 bucks and got me no where it still skips! I have now had the fuel pump, coil packs, spark plugs and wires, and the O2 sensors replaced trying to correct the skip..but once again no luck!! Its still skipping, and the knock from the engine at start up is down right embarrassing, my chevy dealer told me that was normal, it was the way chevy had the engine designed! Chevy may have gotten me this time but NEVER again!!
