2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
I've owned this truck for five months
now. I tow a 6000 lb trailer over the
mountian pass with it.The power is
very good.Handles like a dream. I
havent had any problems yet, no engine
noise or cold start knock. I have been
getting 12.5 mpg aroung city and while
towing the trailer I get 10.6 mpg. The
tow/haul mode on the transmission
works well . It's worth it. The 6.0
motor doesn't sound like it is
straining at all. The seats are
comfortable for the wife nad me and
the rear seat is pleanty roomy for the
10 year old boy.
This is my third Chevy truck and the
best one by far.
For accessibility to the rear seat
it's the two rear doors. The dual
climate control is great for us. The
wife is always colder than me so her
controls are usually set hotter than
If you can afford it go for the Bose
stereo system. I also sprayed the bed
with LineX its really worth it. The
boy wishes there was a plug in in the
rear seat for his game boy. Nerf bars
are nice to aid entry into the truck.
