2001 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)

Review

Bought this pickup brand new - problems
from the start, many of which other
owners are also reporting. Worst
problem is the notorious GM piston
slap; started at 11000 miles and is
getting worse - sounds like a diesel at
startup. GM insists the piston slap is
normal. Also, one side of the box is
2" lower than the other side, transfer
case is very noisy, steering column
rattles and thumps during turns. I do
not expect these problems from a 2 year
old, $30k vehicle. GM customer service
is virtually non-existent.

Best Features

Engine does have adequate power, despite the worrisome, embarrassing piston slap.

Worst Features

Engineering, design, testing upgrades. Quality control. Customer service. These engines should not have been shoved at the unknowing buyer. Now that they have, GM should admit to, and fix the priblem. Shame, Shame.
