1999 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 (Junk Truck)

No longer owned


Got a wild hair and decided I needed a truck. So, I got a 1999 Silverado ( Motor Trend Truck of the Year no less ). Well, let me just say I fully understand GM's troubles after owning this "thing". I had it back to the dealer probably 14 times in just over a year, it had more "wind noise" than a 747 at take off and after I relieved myself of it I got 2 Recall Notices from GM the very next week.

One time as I was picking it up from the dealership and was reviewing my "work ticket" I noticed an item on the ticket that I had not brought the truck in for. "Repair/replaced drivers door window motor". That's odd I thought, I went back in to the counter to point out this error on the work ticket when he informed me "Oh, that went out while it was here". At least that saved me another trip.

Needless to say I got out of that thing and went Toyota for my truck/suv needs.

This pic is not of my actual truck, just the same model and color.
