    I'm buying a 2004 Silverado 3500 Crew Cab with a Duramax and Allison, LS, tow package, etc. It will be used to tow an enclosed trailer which will have a race car that weighs about 1000 pounds plus all the support equipment. The total weight to be towed will be well below the limit for this truck. The dealership is, of course, trying to sell us an extended warranty -- either with Allstate or GM. I read through all the problems people have had with these trucks and the good and bad about extended warranties. Mostly I learned to try to negotiate the cost of the extended warranty, and that it's probably a good thing to have. No one seemed to quite have the same kind of configuration we will. Can anyone respond to the need for an extended warranty in our case?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    I generally say NO to service contracts. The term extended warranty is a misnomer. The odds are against you that you will see a return of your money. In your case, you need to be sure towing the trailer/race car combo won't void the contract. If you write the truck expenses off as business, the contract is void. Most service contract companies I've dealt with ask if the vehicle is used for business or has been modified. Both things void the contract. If you must get a warranty, go with a manufacturer backed one. Be sure it has (in your case) GM's name on it. Be sure you know exactly what is covered and what is not, and what your deductible is.

    2002 rado. Was it a LT?
  • boat10boat10 Posts: 59
    basically the same as the '04 except no folding mirrors, redundant steering wheel controls, had 4.8 engine and was an LS. The '04 also has locking diff.

    No matter how I add it up it doesn't come out. Must be missing some options or something. Oh well.

    I have a 99 GMC Sierra and i have been looking at the 1500 Crew Cab since March or so when they came out. Well I finally went looking today and drove one (had the wife's car getting some damage looked at) I brought my truck back, i took a test drive etc... Well The sticker is $39130! But it has everything 6 Disk with XM, Onstar, Leather, Turn signal Mirrors and is that really nice Sport Red! After trade in of $10500 (i have alot of miles on my 99) and $3000 owner loyalty we are down to $25630. Not bad but I won't go over 48 months and the monthly payment is really steep! I'm not sure what to do, it's really nice to not have a truck payment and the wife just got a new car so she keeps telling me "no you can wait another year or two" but i don't think i can! I trust the dealership, i buy everything there except for my last truck whata you all think?

    Go for it! It's all you'll think about if you don't.

    I went through the same thing when I was considering trading in my '99 for an '02 CC. No regrets and the better half finally agreed it is the better truck.

    You only live once - Good luck.

    try being a fan of the Ford F150

    it's flat out the better truck and you can get them for $8,000 off MSRP at the end of the month (or now if you can haggle)

    I drove the Silverado first, was even eligible for the GM family discount (joke) and passed for the F150.

    At least take a test drive.

    That sounds like a good deal on the "03" Silverado. Good Discount. Do you think that they are giving as good of a discount on the "04" Silverado? Who was the Dealer and location and if possible a Phone #. Thanks, Bob W.

    I just bought an Express Cargo Van at 20% below the sticker price. The total price I paid included all the fees of Dealership and Taxes, so I think I did well. Drive out price. I think they will do the same for pickups. I found that the commercial / fleet sales was the way to go. Call Tom Jumper Chevrolet (Atlanta, GA area in Roswell) and ask for FLEET SALES. Mention U of Georgia football and it helps. One guy in Fleet Sales has all kinds of Big Dog stuff. I bought on July 28, so the end of year incentives are in full swing.

    The Edmunds Chevrolet 1500 Truck rebate page indicates $3,500 in cash and a second $1,000 in cash. However, the dealer indicates he is unaware of the second $1,000 rebate but is aware of a $1,500 rebate from GMAC if financed with them. Can anyone shed light on the $1,000 rebate noted on the Edmunds rebate page?

    Harold, go directly to the chevy web site for your rebate info. The link is: www.chevrolet.com
    For example, the Northeast states have a 5k rebate on the 2004 Silverado thru 9/7/4 for cash deals.
