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


dont get the small block 6.o you will get the same fuel mileage as the 8.1 and give up 45 horsepower.I tow a 14 ft enclosed trailer app. weight 4000 pounds loaded and I get 7 miles to the gallon. The gear ratio from 3rd to overdrive is to steep. making you drive in 3rd pulling a load the truck can not maintain 70 mph in overdrive. The headliners on three of my 2002hds look as if they were cut to small.The way the backseat folds down for storage is a joke. I have a very loud knock in the motor since new. The dealer tells me its normal then ask me if it burned a quart of oil every 3 thousand miles.Beware of the 6.o litre it has problems they won't admit to

Best Features

it has started every time Iv'e needed it to so far.

Worst Features

Standard larger fuel tank. pulling a trailer your lucky to get 190 miles to a tank. light the map light buttons. they are the only ones not lit and you only need them when its dark DUH.
