Review of the 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

  • Chevrolet makes a pretty good pick-'em-up if powerful engines are your thing. But they've got a ways to go to match the Ford F-250 Super Duty when it comes to the quality of the materials and overall craftsmanship.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Class-leading engines and hauling capacity, roomy interior, superior brakes.

  • Cons

    Spotty build quality, cheap interior materials.

  • What's New for 2002

    After undergoing a full redesign last year, Chevrolet's heavy-duty three-quarter-ton truck gets few changes for 2002. Air conditioning is now standard on all trim levels along with extendable sunshade visors and improved base model radios.

Hidden duramax costs

Vehicle: 2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab 2WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)

Besides being one of the best and most solid diesel pickups I've ever owned, the truck is also the worst when it comes to the engine. The third full set of injectors have just been installed, the second Allison transmission last year, and an injection pump housing last month. For each injector change, 36, 72, and 113 thou., the truck has spent weeks waiting for parts and service. The truck sat in Phoenix for almost two weeks waiting for a torque converter and trans. Maintenance costs have exceeded $8,000 overall outside of warranty. It has cost Chevrolet $6,000 per injector change. All done under 200k warranty. When the injectors are no longer warrantied - this truck is gone!

Has an engine tick which Gen Mtrs. says is piston slap. Misses when any loading such as going up even a slight hill. Local dealer has been working with GM engineers was told currently is no fix? Told Gen. Mtrs. knew of a "FEW" 6.0L engines that do this. Should not have released them if they knew there was a problem. currently trying to get vehicle repaired/replaced under "Lemon Law". Vehicle only has 4500MI. on it.

I've got a 2002 2500HD 4X4 that has pulled, fairly hard, to the left since new. At 500 miles, I called the dealer, "You have to wait until 3,000 miles before we can look at it." OK, at 1,?...
