2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
I have had my truck 7 months and I love it. So much power and comfort. It's really great. In the summer I pull a lot and one time I had just over 21,000lbs behind the truck and she pulled it. Was not going far fast but she did it
I purchased my 2002 Chevrolet 2500HD 4x4 Ext cab truck in 2003. Other than the fuel economy of this truck, I have no compliants. I take care of it but I also use it as a truck. I am a hunter and commonly go off-road on some horrible roads. I have never been stuck and the truck is all stock. I plan on keeping this truck for a long long time and hopefully passing it on to one of my sons as a first truck. Chevrolet really put time, heart, and guts into building this machine!
V-8 6.0l gas burner! It is a power plant!
Fuel economy and larger wheels and tire. Chevrolet put 245/75 16s (6.5"wheel) on a truck that can handle a much more aggressive tire and wheel.
I added a $300 chip and get 20mpg on the road and 16mpg around town. it's amazing for a truck that large to have as much power, confort and gas economy. I will put it up next to a Ford or Dodge any day.
For every day driving in southern
California, also to haul horses, fuel
economy has been good, the diesel
engine surprisingly quiet.
The Allison tranny holds speed going
down hill. After hauling horses with
the Allison tranny, through incredibly
smooth decelerations, I don't think
I'll go back to brand X.
All in all a Great truck, Very sporty
ride compared to its predecessor.
As stated above, I'm thrilled with the
Allison tranny, but think the entire
truck overall is a great buy. It
handles well, goes off road when needed
with the 4WD, pulls anything I've asked
it to. Good air conditioning, the
heated seats are great in cold weather.
Redesign the seat for folks who like to
sit up straight! I know the seat was
designed for the male torso, but as
females increasingly buy trucks, they
just don't fit, in fact can be painful
to drive any distance with the lumbar
support jabbing in the small of the
2002 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)
Have had continued problems with the
drive train, from transmission noise
to multiple problems with the front
and rear differentials noise and
Vehicle seems reliable in most cases,
but leaves that nagging feeling that
once the warranty is off I'm going to
be looking at repairs on a low milage
vehicle (only averages 500 per month).
Much fun to drive, but the overall
fuel mileage is a w f u l, but that
goes with the territory of the 6L
engine and the rear end selection.
