I bought this vehicle for commercial use and it has been pretty good. Problem areas have been the fuel injectors (replaced under warranty), and faulty gauges. After almost 3 years of ownership, the truck still looks good and drives very carlike. I chose a Duramax for it's smoothness over the Ford and Dodge diesels. My truck has the 12,000 GVW package and I have not been able to bottom out the suspension, in spite of my best efforts!
I pull a 32 ft. fifth wheel which is my
home and office. I am extremely happy
with the power, convience, ease to
drive and mileage I get on this vehicle.
It is a little rough to use as a
standard mode of transportation when
not performing as a tow vehicle as the
ride is stiff due to it's stiff
suspension etc. The comforts in the
cab as far as leather, power seats,
Bose sound system, On-star, heated
seats etc. makes life a bit easier on
long trips. I make long trips for my
employment which involve coast to coast
travel many times, this vehicle's
ability to do that job in relatively
good comfort and convience of operation
makes me a happy owner.
If you looking for a truck that pulls, tows,or just hauling the family this truck is it.My diesel 4x4 extended cab is sweet pulls anything I have asked of it.Tows like there is nothing behind it. The purr of the diesel lets me know I am sitting on nothing but power. This is my 2nd 1 ton chevy won't buy any thing else but.
