Autumn is fast approaching, and with it, some we have another high-mile truck. Yay! Let’s dive right in. Today’s amazing high-miler comes to us from Steven Stokes. Here is the lowdown on his Silverado.
Odometer Reading: 554,739
Model: Chevy Silverado LS 4.8L 2WD Ext. Cab
Just found this site. Great to see that others have long running vehicles.
I got a 2003 Silverado with over 551,000 miles on it, and I’m looking forward to seeing how many more I can gather up!! I bought my Chevy Silverado brand-new off the Chase Chevrolet dealership in Stockton, CA., it was my first, and only (so far), “Brand-new vehicle” that I have ever purchased, it had if I remember correctly, only 12 miles on it when I took it home.
Steven takes his driving quite seriously. Within a year he’d put 35,000 miles on the vehicle, and just like that, it was out of warranty. He states it’s been a dependable truck and the engine is original, however, the transmission and rear-end have some new stuff in them, though all still factory stock.
Steven says the Silverado has been in three rear-end collisions. Yikes! It even ate a brake rotor that came off of a scrap truck, and it has always taken him home. Steven is forever grateful that his truck continues to let him drive it. We are as well.
He drives 100 miles a day and is aiming for a million. We’ll be right there with Steven as he aims for his goal. Keep on driving! Your mileage puts you right into the top 50 hall-of-fame. Congrats!
