#73 of 756 2004 Silverado 1500 LS long bed Reg. Cab 4 x 4

I just wanted to share my experience and thank those who have posted before me especially
joe29001.(I got almost the same truck as him. The sticker on mine was 100 more.)
Yesterday I picked up a 2004 1500 LS 4 x 4 with Snow Plow prep, HD Trailering and suspension, Light Duty pack with 5.3 V8, 6 way power seat, powerfolding heated outside mirrors with turn signals, and tinted glass from Imperial Chevy in Milford MA.
Agreed upon price 26,650
Minus 3500 Rebate
Minus 3 Instant Value Coupons 1500
Minus GMAC financing 1000 (They said had to have for 90 days)
Total was 20,650
I also had 2400 GM card points that was bumped up to 3000 making the total purchase price before TTL 17,650. I did not have a trade in.
I did all negotiating on the phone after not getting a great response via email from most dealers. Truck was in the showroom and had 10 miles on it. This dealer was about an hour away but gave me the best deal with least amount of hassle. I would not hesitate to recommend this dealership. . .i was not pressured to buy anything extra.
Any questions feel free to email me.
Thanks also to Carman in the rebates thread as that was very helpful in getting the deal.

#76 of 756 Chevy cost more than Ford?

Even with the current $2k rebate the 05 Silverado Reg Cab V8 & auto tranny cost in the low 20's. I can get a similarly equipped F150 for about 17k.
Has Chevy always costs more than Fords?
#77 of 756 Ford or Chevy?

Looking at a 04 Ford F-250 diesel but alarmed by the 66 TSB posted. Ford diesel is supposed to have better fuel economy.
Chevy 04 2500HD diesel has complaints about fuel economy but doesn't show any TSB's posted. Any body have any input on the better vehicle?
#78 of 756 Hi - quick question about Silverado 04 crew cab 1500
Dec 22, 2004 (2:12 pm)
Hi everyone, I'm new to this discussion group and have been looking around for a truck for a while. Thank you for all your comments regarding the Chevy 1500 Crew Cab Silverado. I found a leftover 04 on the lot at a local dealer and seems like a good deal. It's a Z71 package, candy apple red, and he's asking $33919 with zero percent financing for 72 months (in lieu of the $3500 factory rebate and $1500 GMAC financing rebate.
What do you think? Has anyone have any major mechanical problems that I should really worry about with their 04 Silverado?
Thanks very much.

I have not had any problems with my 04 reg cab.
Also, it is not my daily driver as I would go insane driving a truck everyday. I much prefer a sedan to commute and use the truck for chores and light plowing.
The price you were quoted seems high.
What is the invoice and Msrp?
Are you aware about the Instant value coupons?
Some previous posters have said that you should be able to get about 10K off sticker(w/ rebates) on an 04 . . . I was hesistant at first but with patience found a deal for almost 10K off sticker and then another 3K in GM card earnings.
I went to a couple of small local dealers that did not want to deal and did not have many coupons to use so I ended up at a dealer about an hour from my home that moves a lot of vehicles.
Good luck and keep us posted.

In Sept. I decided to get rid of my 02 S-10 and move up to a 05 Silverado.
I got internet pricing from 2 dealers both came in at about the same $26500 for an Ext Cab 5.3Ltr Trailer package LS equipt.
I then selected a 3rd dealer who was a high volume dealer. I checked his inventory on line and selected three trucks that were in stock, all similar equipt. I made sure that I got to the dealer early so I could be the salesmen's first customer of the day. When I got to the dealer I gave the saleman the VIN numbers for the three trucks and told him that I was ready to buy one of the trucks that day. I ended up taking one that also had XM radio (only because it was there not because I wanted it) Dealer MSRP was $32,500, Dealer invoice was $27,300 (according to Edmunds) I paid $23,500 and got him to throw in a bed liner and running boards which were not on the truck. The secret was I told him I had been internet shopping at other dealers but I never told him what the others had quoted. I just let him talk himself into a lower and lower price. I guess that they are really desperate to make sales and timing is everything. Also do yopur homework up front.

To those who responded to my questions in particular owns2chvtrks and dillydill, thanks very much for the input and sharing your experiences with some Chevy dealers in obtaining a truck. I have a 2002 Chevy Suburban z71 with 18,000 miles and love it. I haven't had any problems with it whatsoever.
The truck I'm looking at is a leftover 2004 Silverado Z71 4x4 4 Door crew cab, 5.3l v8, with running boards, trailer pkg, and Bose speaker system. MSRP is 37567, and with current factory discounts, rebates, etc., the price is at 28919, which seems like a good deal to me. Because I'm looking to take the 0% financing I lose 5k on the truck so my price is 33919 which if financed at 0% is cheaper for me in the long run. The other piece of my situation (which I only have myself to blame) is i'm underwater on a two trades on making to obtain the vehicle but my third trade covers the difference as i own the last car free and clear. Yes, im trying to trade three cars, long story.
I've looked around for the last several months for a truck and I really like the power in the Chevy. I drove a 2004 Ford f150 crew cab with the 4.6L v8 engine but it had no acceleration whatsover. The Ford delaer is asking 29500 for the 4 door 2004 f150 with a 5.4 l v8 (i didn't drive it but assume it probably has more pickup than the 4.6), power moonroof, step bars and a few other features. I didn't look at Dodge. Looked at 2005 Toyota Tundra, 4 door, SR5, dealer asking 31000, 282 hp v8. Tundra just seemed "soft" but actually a pretty nice truck especially since it comes with the 6 foot bed.
Anyhow, thanks to all who provided some input and I hope you all have a great holiday.

Thats' total B.S.. There's NO way a dealer could sell that truck for that price. They'd be out of business in a week. Current "going rate" on these trucks is 20% OFF sticker AT BEST. You're "talking" around 28%. THERE'S NO WAY.
