This version of the Silverado hadn't changed much since its 1999 introduction, so it didn't compete well with its contemporaries. Highlights included a selectable four-wheel-drive system with a full-time mode and a high payload capacity. But its powertrain wasn't particularly smooth. Handling was ungainly and the ride was stiff. Interior quality was also below par.

Reliability indicates how models have performed in the past, providing the basis for predicting how the vehicles will hold up in the year ahead. These charts provide the most comprehensive reliability information available to consumers. Based on information received from our latest subscriber survey for over 300,000 vehicles, our reliability history charts give you a rundown on how 2000 through 2021 vehicles are holding up in 17 potential trouble spots, ranging from the engine, transmission, and brakes to power equipment and the electrical system. NA indicates that we did not receive a large enough sample size to provide data for a specific year. An X indicates that the vehicle was not manufactured for a specific year.

Owner Reported Trouble Spots

The Reliability score is based on our latest subscriber survey of 2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 owners. The owner comments describe problems respondents experienced with this vehicle.

Brakes

Antilock system (ABS), parking brake, master cylinder, calipers, rotors, pulsation or vibration, squeaking, brake failure or wear.

What Owners Say

Antilock system (ABS)

"ABS sensors are built into wheel bearing assembly. The cost of replacing the entire bearing assy is almost more than the value of the vehicle, so the fix is to disable the ABS system, leaving the vehicle with REGULAR NON-ABS brakes, which, in my opinion, is a better option in the first instance. I started driving prior to ABS systems, and remain far more comfortable driving WITHOUT ABS that with it. However, the brake lines rusted through, with nearly complete loss of braking ability - fortunately, no damage or loss was incurred."

Cathy H., ON (2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 4.8-L V8)

"ABS dash panel light periodically comes on while driving. Brakes seem to operate well, however, could be a problem lurking."

Anonymous, PA (2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LS 5.3-L V8)

"Left front sensor went bad. Nothing wrong with the brakes, just the darn sensor. Repairs cost about $800. Ridiculous!"

Tom C., NJ (2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4.3-L V6)
Calipers

"LF brake line loosened at the caliper and leaked onto the brake pad. Tightening the brake line nut stopped the leak. Replacining brake pads on both sides fixed the the stopping issue."

Anonymous, MN (2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 4.8-L V8)
Master cylinder

Anonymous, (2006 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Unsure 4.3-L V6)

Engine Major

What Owners Say

Engine rebuild or replacement

"The mechanic said the first thing that failed was probably a roller on a hydraulic lifter. This caused the computer to try to compensate with the wrong amount of fuel to that cylinder. This caused that piston to slap the side of the cylinder, causing excessive wear and eventually loose compression. When torn down, it had to have the cylinders bored, which meant new pistons, etc. Lots of other new parts, inside the engine and outside the engine, had to be installed to ensure the rebuilt engine's warranty would not be voided."
