With its numerous powertrain and cab configurations and stout towing and hauling capacities, the Silverado 3500 is a hard truck to beat for those who need maximum functionality and capability from their work truck.

I have a 2004 3500 4 wheel drive ex cab. I like the truck very much. I have had it about 1 year now. I have a problem and no will answer without charging me for the answer or suggestions. It is a 6.6 diesel the oil pressure is about 70 pounds when I start it up drive about 30 miles it goes to zero but no engine noise. It has 86,000 miles on it
Paul, thanks for listening to me

Has electrical problems. Intermittantly won't start. Also has transmission problems when slowed down under heavy load, I lose gears. Appears the torque converter runs away. GM can't fix electrical problem. I filed and was awarded a lemon law buy back. GM is miserable to deal with and has been dragging their feet every step of the way. Would not recommend any Chevrolet truck to anyone. Personally will never purchase another one. I am already out $6000.00+ and still waiting for GM to buy the vehicle back from me per the arbitrator's decision.

The only real problem I have found is
that it wants to push while turning in
4W. Other than that it pulls the camper
with no problem and with most of my
camping done in the Western Maryland
and West Virgina (Appalachian
Mountains) You can understand the
workout the 4w drive gets while pulling
a 36' 5th wheel camper
