My 2005 Silverado 1500 Z-71 LT 4 x 4 has got to be one of the best trucks ever made. I hope I don't kick myself in the ass by posting this and then everything goes south, but i have to say this. I have never pulled a spark plug. I have never taken a wire off of a plug. I bought it brand new in January of 2005 and still have the original plugs and wires. I have only used Mobil 1 synthetic since my first oil change and replace oil/filter every 3500-5000 miles. I know there are people out there saying that's wasting money changing the oil too frequently, but I would do it the exact same way if i was to buy another. I've got 270,000+ miles on the truck and a lot of those were doing some crazy stuff. I hauled all of the soil for my garden from the valley below day after day by just filling the box 'til she squatted too much. I ran demo derby cars and hauled them around. I pulled a loaded 27' travel trailer off the stock bumper up to Yosemite more than 20 times. Same trailer over the Altamont and San Luis Reservoir Pass. I moved a couple 10' x 16' buildings in the mud and then a few miles down the road. I've helped numerous stranded motorists in the snow and used it as a dead man or pull vehicle falling huge trees. I've hauled over a 100 cords of wood with it. I've been buried in mud up the the bottom of the doors with the exhaust barely getting out. I pulled 5-7 ton rock and sand trailers locally. I've also been very comfortable the whole while. I love my truck more than a person should. I've asked it to do a lot over the years and it has never let me down. I wish I knew more people that I could say the same about. My buddy has an '07 though...beautiful truck, but tons of issues. The only thing i would probably have done differently is that i would have opted for the crew cab vs. the extended, but that's it. Anybody else out there had a similar experience with spark plugs and wires....stock AC/Delco never touched, cleaned, pulled,...nothing ....250,000+ miles! Seriously! What's the record?
Iam very happy with my Silverado and with the southern comfort package it looks as stunning as iy runs. I have 90,000 miles on it and I have only had one issue with it and that is the switch for the four wheel drive. The fuel milage I get just blows away any other truck out there, I average 19.8 mpg on the highway and 17.8 mpg in the city. It is such a pleasure to drive.
A great truck, but all the chevy truck I've have owned have been great.1500 crew cab rides well, very roomy, 16 mpg, tows well 8600 lbs trailer to the mountains. Plenty power for the take off on just moving a long in traffic. The brakes are the best. one day at 60mph had to make an emergency stop 40 feet till impact, She stoped three feet before impact and saved the day and lives. Great antlock brake system. A big thanks to Chevrolet safty team. The coldest ac ever in 100 degree weather.I wood recommend this 2005 crew cab to anyone. YES TO CHEVY ANY DAY!!!!
Front Suspention needs work, but drives well.
This is one of the nicest vehicles I've ever owned. If you want a nice, versatile truck that can pull, haul, drive nice, and look good, than the Chevy Silverado is built for you.
