Purchased used with 53000 miles. My
neighbor is a GM mechanic and told me
I'd be putting a water pump on it soon.
At 63,000 sure enough, it needed a
water pump. Within months started
seeing coolant leak again. This time
intake manifold gaskets. Researched the
internet, seems this is a problem with
5.7 engines. GM's solution...redesign
the motor. No service bulletin, no
corporate support, fix it yourself.
It's unfortunate GM refuses to be
honorable and stand behind what is
obviously a defect, not normal wear and
tear. It ran better after new gaskets
but wallet $600 lighter. All in all my
family loves it but my instincts tell
me to get rid of it soon.
Room, comfort, safety. Its a tank and
we feel safe driving it.
