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.

Favorite Features

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

Suggested Improvements

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.
