This is by far the greatest and most comfortable truck ever made. And if power and performance are what you want then this is the truck for you. The only trouble I had was with the injectors and luckily they were covered by the LB7's extended 7year/200,000mile warranty. Other than that I have never had trouble with this truck. Plus the aftermarket for Duramax's is so wide open to your imagination.

I bought the Duramax, had a 2001 f250
figured I'd try it. Man let me tell
you, quite as a mouse compared to
Dodge and Ford and the power surprised
me. the leather is no comparison to
Fords, (does Dodge have leather?) When
we moved from W. Colorado to Central
TX I pulled a trailer ( over 8,000
lbs) over those mountians not even
much strain, fact had to wait for the
Ryder at the top, but no surprise
there. My wife wants one now,
the ride is like a good sedan and Im
not kidding its that good, my fuel
varies between 20 - 21 mpg our Ford
around 16mpg 4 people who have driven
my truck bought one, best vehicle I've

The 6.0 engine knocks a little until
warm...other than that it's ok. Lacks
real pulling power, even with a 410
rear end. Tranny went out at 9700 miles.
Power window regulator at 37000 miles
($500), Rotors now acting up at 47000
(all of a sudden??)
Pampered truck. Goes to FL with a light
trailer and back annually, othewise no
strain. Hauls nothing. Looks like the
8.1 and the Allison was the way to go.
Ride was real choppy from day one. I
mean bouncey on an uneven road! Hang on
in the rear seat! GM should be able to
do MUCH better than this.
They say every HD truck is made for
200K...at what expense?
Fully redesigned last year, the Sierra 2500HD gets only minor updates for 2002. Air conditioning is now standard on all trim levels along with extendable sunshade visors and redesigned exterior badging.
