Review

Stick to your guns with the dealers, they think these trucks are made of gold. These trucks are nice, but the market is full of them. Take your time and don't get pressured. Yeah they gotta eat too.

Review

Duramax is a great motor. Tons of power, quiet for a diesel, smooth truck for a dually. Maintenance needed to keep it on the road, but used it hard. Expect the truck to last for a long time for the next owner also. Sold at 198k.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 3500 Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab LT 4WD LB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is a work truck and a daily driver. I tow a 7500 lb trailer 300-700 miles per week and it does the job. Mileage: 10 mpg w/ the trailer, 15-17 mpg w/out. Dealer performed all service Duramax diesel head gasket failed at 118k miles. Even after months of negotiations GM REFUSED to honor the Warranty! The repair cost $7500 out of pocket! I CANNOT recommend GM to anyone EVER again!

Review

We love our truck! We pull a 4 horse trailer everywhere with it and really don't even feel it back there, even fully loaded. It is solid, runs great, and looks good going down the road.


Best Features

Allison transmission, comfortable interior, pulling power.

Review

Great vehicle, I have not had any problems at all so far. Regular routine maintenance. Will pull anything I give it. Duramax is the way to go.


Best Features

Duramax/Allison, rear audio, excellent lights.


Worst Features

Larger, more aggressive tires. I have the optional goodyear AT tires. They slip on wet grass. Just slightly softer ride unloaded, severe wheel hop in rear empty.
