Review

Silverado 2500hd diesel 2006. From the day I bought it there was a shaking in the front left side only noticeable between 40/50 mph.They said it was the tires,but have put two new sets on and problem is still there. Seems like a shake in the frame or chasie posiblely,due to lack of weight in the rear end of truck.Can feel it in the wheel and also in the seat while driving.Shaking not as noticable at other speeds but still there.Could be something in the drive shaft also. Looking for some answers.


Best Features

Big tough and powerfull,with plenty of room inside. Legroom is great and the heated leather seats make driving a pleasure. XM stereo/six cd player along with OnStar makes this Chevy one of the best I have owned.


Worst Features

Work on the shaking in the front of truck due to lack of weight in rear area possibly or check design of drive shaft

Review

I think I bought a Monday morning vehicle. The rear differential leaks, and I get abhorrent fuel mileage. 8 MPG when towing a 7500 pound trailer and adequate mileage not towing (16 MPG) I took it to the the Chevy dealership twice for the leaking problem. It happens when driving it on the highway or towing. They added an inline filter in the breather hose, not much help, it slows the process down until the filter fills up, then it leaks out of the tube. The third time I take it to a different dealer, they replace the inline filter with a smaller one and the want to re-tap a new location for the breather tube right on the rear axle housing and plug up the old one on top of the pumpkin.


Best Features

Power seats for front passenger and heated seats for both passengers.


Worst Features

The hydromatic shift for the allison 6 speed should be on the steering wheel for ease of shifting instead of on the face of the gear shifter which places it behind the steering wheel. It's not ergonomically sound.
