2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab LS 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 5M)


The positives are the room for six people, especially with a family. I like the lifted hood design and the fog lamps are awesome (however I get brighted a lot from oncoming traffic)! The wind noise in WY, does make it a little noisy down the interstate. Feel safe driving it. Although the extended mirrors are nice, they vibrate so bad that you cannot see out of them going down the highway (even on a smooth highway). Had some difficulties with the mirrors sticking in retract mode. Gas mileage is TERRIBLE! Averaging 11.7 miles per gallon. I have used 1,100 gallons of fuel since April, with approximately 13,000 miles on it, not pulling any weight.

Best Features

* Design and look of the truck * Charcoal gray color has 3 metallic colors * Raised hood, fog lamps are a lot brighter than previous GM vehicle * Sound of stock exhaust is neat * Plenty of HP

Worst Features

* A way to better gas mileage * With our technology, we should be able to get better than 11 mpg. * Better stereo system, even the bose system does not sound that great. * Back speakers went out in my truck already (taking it for warranty work) Mirrors vibrate down interstate. Need better desig
