2003 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab LT 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

The Chevy Duramax with the Allison transmission is not worth it. This is the second diesel I have owned and it was just as bad as the Ram. The fuel rail needed to be replaced at 100,000 miles. At 120,000 the supposed best transmission on the market the Allison needed to be replaced. I pull a 8,000 pound trailer once a month and run synthetic fluids in everything that I change per the manufacturer recommendation and after 120,000 miles the transmission was gone. Can you believe that?? At 125,000 miles the ball bearings on the front end went out on the freeway and almost killed my son. At 150,000 miles I needed all new injectors. This truck has been nothing but a money pit. Most of the time it can't even do what I need it to. If you are pulling down the freeway it does fine but if you slow to a crawl and pull just a 3,000 lb trailer up a dirt road it will over heat in less then 15 minutes. The climate control knobs have been almost useless since 100,000 miles. I have also had a lot of problems with locks and windows. The only good things I can say about this truck is that it is a comfortable ride in both the front and back. I will also say I have never had any trouble with the 4x4 system.

I have 327000 miles and the truck is awesome. No issues just change the oil regular and just put on the forth set of Michelins.

Review

THis truck has been a great vehicle. I have the Duramax Diesel / Allison tran, 4x4, CC, LT package. I added a powerchip programmer to it and I get around 18.5mpg, not pulling a trailer, around 13mpg pulling a loaded 18', but the power remains the same either way. You can not go wrong if you need a truck for driving around town or pulling a trailer around.


Best Features

MPG, interior design, POWER.


Worst Features

Injectors, had mine go out at 90k, but dealership repaired at no charge.

Review

I have had 2 Ford trucks and had nothing but trouble with them. This 2500HD is my 2nd Chevy and this truck is the best by far. I love driving this truck on the road. It handles very good in all kinds of weather. I have only 1 complaint. The "bad gas mileage


Best Features

The interior. It's very comfortable


Worst Features

Better gas mileage

Review

I bought this vehicle with the greatest of expectations. Duramax iesel, Allison trans. what a dream. It turned into a nightmare. The Injectors have been replaced 2 times, it seems that every time I turn around it is breaking. Heater, speedometer, transmision, the list and $$ go on and on, and this was all under 60000 miles but over the 36000 mile warranty. I have always been a GM corporation fan. They have always been good to me. This one makes me want to say GM you need a 100,000 mile bumper to bumper or I'm going to Toyota, Sorry. I hate to disrespect one of my idols but they just don't seem to have the quality or dependability I demand. So GM here it is 100,000 bumper/bumper or adios


Best Features

I enjoy the ride, and the comfort of my truck.


Worst Features

Better quality construction, and 100,000 mile bumper to bumper warranty.
