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


Review

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!


Best Features

Tight cab, solid ride, good heat/cooling in front, excellent headlights and stable hauling a load or a trailer.


Worst Features

I hope Chevrolet has done something with the injection pump, injectors, engine thermostats and transmission (it forgot how to shift or stay in gear). Please put air ducts to the back seat for heat and cooling.

Review

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.


Worst Features

General Mtrs. begin to stand behind their worthless products.
