Piston Slap is not normal!

ReviewOverall liked the truck and held up well, with the exception of the engine. At 16,500 it began knocking on start-up and got worse the next few months. I took it to the dealer because I obviously needed a new motor! Well to my surprise the dealer says "they all do that, that is normal" A day of research on the internet, and a couple sleepless nights, I traded it in to a wholesaler before the end of the week. I take very good care of my trucks and expect them to look/act/rune like new, and hold there resale value, but with a gas engine that sounded like a diesel, this one had to go. I bought a Ford.
Best FeaturesBuckets, console, AutoTrac 4x4
Worst FeaturesEngines should not knock at 20 months, and 16,500 miles, my 1975 GM with 120,000 was quieter than this truck! GM you have a problem, stand-up and fix it, I would be willing to buy another.
