"Mine's a 2001 extended cab with 162,000 miles on it with the 5.3L and it just won't stop. Fires right up every time and always gets me to where I need to go. Looks great and built to last. Plan on keeping it for a long long time."
Pros: "Decent truck. Has A/C, tilt, cruise, AM/FM Stereo"

"I have performed all routine maintenance, changing fluids, and making repairs as needed. at 100,000 miles I replaced distributor, coil, spark plugs, wires. 125,000 replaced front wheel bearing assemblies. Routine fluid flush and fills, routine oil changes. Great truck, only complaint is that every 2-3 years I have to replace the split-heating control module. (It will stick on hot or stick on cold on driver's side.)I have put in 4 of these since I bought it."

"Owned a '97 F150 for 11 months prior to buying this Chevy. The Ford was in the shop 18 times in that 11 months for multiple problems. This vehicle has been in the shop twice. Once for a brake computer that failed and the other time for rework of rear brake system. Otherwise, it's been a reliable workhorse. Since the advent of ethanol my gas mileage has plummeted from 18-22 to 16-17. For a 6 cyl, that is poor in my opinion. The 18-22 I thought was awesome for a truck. Comfortable enough my wife and I take it on all road trips. Hard matching landau cap makes it very versatile and stylish. I'll keep it til it drops dead. Hope to see another 8-10 years out of it."
