The Silverado had been a good choice for years and the redesigned 2014 model was an even better performer than previous models. Handling is more carlike and the cabin is as quiet as a luxury car's. An assist system makes the tailgate easy to lift and prevents it from dropping open, easing cargo-handling duties. At 16 mpg overall with the 5.3-liter V8, our four-wheel-drive Crew Cab model got impressive fuel economy.

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.

Anonymous, TX (2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 5.3-L V8)

"Since buying new in 2014, the vehicle has experienced two separate AC failures involving failure of the Condenser (1st failure) and Compressor (2nd failure). Both failures were due to the loss of AC fluid brought about by the hoses leaking around their connection point to the AC hose connection block. The block was not changed when the Condenser failed, resulting in the failure of the compressor. None of these failures were considered by the dealer to be warranty repairs even though their failure to replace the block resulted in the failure of the Compressor."

"Had to replace an injector. It was stuck in the engine and the technician bent the fuel rail removing it. $1200.00 repair."

Charles O., KS (2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 5.3-L V8)

"The dealer service department couldn't identify the problem. They originally said I had a casting defect. I'd love to know how they arrived at that conclusion through diagnostic tests. Then a few days later, they stated I had a bad coil pack and injector. Then it changed to 3 bad coil packs. They did not have the parts in stock, which tells me this must be a bigger recurring problem with this motor size (5.3 liter). Finally they got the parts and repaired my truck after 2 1/2 weeks. They then told me they replaced all the coil packs. They didn't do it out of the goodness of their heart. There's a problem with this engine size. I'm very unhappy with this vehicle and extremely dissatisfied with the repair department."

Anonymous, CO (2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 5.3-L V8)

"A check engine light came on. The truck was not running smooth. I brought to truck to the dealer, Autonation Chevrolet Arrowhead in Peoria, Arizona. Initially they told me there was a casting defect in the engine and they would have to replace the engine. A few days later, they said it wasn't an engine casting defect, but there were a few bad fuel injectors. They had to wait for parts. (apparently, there is a issue with these fuel injectors, so there was a shortage of the replacement injectors). Finally they received the parts and replaced all the fuel injectors. So far so good. Based on their history, I don't have a lot of faith in them. We'll see. The worst dealer service department I've ever experienced."

"intermittent rough idle at start. Check engine light came on, was diagnosed at the dealer 3 times. First time they could not duplicate the problem. Second time it was recommended to have the fuel injectors cleaned (I had to pay for this). The last time they changed a fuel injector. Have not driven more that a few miles since. Note that the very first time I had this problem I had the code read for free at an auto parts store. I looked the code up online and found that typically it was caused by a faulty fuel injector. I passed this on to the dealer but they didn't change the fuel injector until the third time I brought in the vehicle. I took the dealership up on their offer to split the deductible on my extended warranty."

"Was running rough and the transmission light came on. When diagnosed at the dealer they said it was a bad fuel injector. I said really with only 20,000 miles? It seemed to cure the problem, however a week to ten days later it was doing the same thing. When I took it to the dealer they said it was another bad fuel injector. I said I could hardly believe that two injectors would fail within one week. I contacted Chevrolet, after arguing and fighting for about two months they offered me a $500 voucher good for parts or accessories only. The repairs were discounted, but I still paid around $1500 for both repairs. Extremely dissatisfied!!!!!"

I brought the truck in after 6 months after purchase for this squeak. At first, they could find it. As I drove off the lot, it continued to happen. I brought the truck back and they stated CHEVROLET had put a bulletin out regarding this valve squeaking. Thus they replaced the exhaust system. Here I am 3 1/2 years later and the squeak is coming back. They stated the 36,000 mile warranty had just expired and it wasn't covered.

Engine rebuild or replacement

"The engine was destroyed because a piston fell apart within the engine and scored the cylinder wall bad enough that the entire engine was replaced under warranty"

Anonymous, TX (2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 High Country 6.2-L V8)

"Excessive oil consumption maybe caused by Active Fuel Management. Resulted in engine rebuild rings and pistons. took 4 weeks to repair and I was without a truck. Dealer did give a Dealer car to drive for free."

Anonymous, CO (2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 5.3-L V8)

"started out with the enginer sputtering while in idle, like the idling needed to be adjusted. Then the engine light came on and the stabilitrac light came on and I took it in for a diagnosis. OBD showed a misfire on cylinder 5. Took it to the mechanic and they replaced the coil pack/plug. Test drove it and it did not fix the problem. Took a deeper look inside the engine and found the a lifter had fallen and damage to the camshaft. Told me a rebuild would be as expensive as an engine replacement."

What Owners Say

Spark plugs or wires failure

"When I went on a trip to Florida when it only had 8800 miles on it, the spark plug wires on two cylinders disintegrated and had my wife and I stranded in NC. Then this month it did it again on a different cylinder. GM refused to pay for the most recent occurrence, and never compensated us for the set back on for our travel set back in NC"

Alan S., NY (2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 5.3-L V8)

"Spark plug wires kept disconnecting from the spark plugs causing the truck to vibrate. Wires connections had corroded and needed to be replaced."

Anthony M., MA (2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 LT 4.3-L V6)

"The spark plug wire and coil was defective and had to be replaced."
