Pros: Paint still looks like new without ever being parked under cover for the last 5 years.
Cons: Daytime running lights & trying to control them.
Advice: I'm sure you won't regret choosing this vehicle.Reliability, confidence, satisfaction. Just a few words to describe my feelings about this truck. Holds up great over time & always gets the job done whether working or playing. Definitely will repeat this purchase decision when it is time for a replacement.
Pros: Tow/haul mode
Advice: noneHas great power and acceleration. Fuel mileage is very good considering this is a 3/4 ton pickup. Empty on the open road computer reads out at 21-22 mpg. Cost of operation (not including fuel) has been less than $0.03/mile. I currently have 65500 miles on this vehicle.
Pros: DURAMAX DIESEL V8 WITH ALLISON AUTOMACTIC TRANSMISSION.
Advice: SHOP AROUND AND GET A INTERNET PRICE, THIS COULD SAY YOU BIG BUCKS.MONSTER TRUCK WITH A ALL-MOST CAR RIDE. INTERRIOR HAS MANY AMENIDIES.
Pros: Responsiveness of engine/transmission
Cons: Small fuel fill pipe & High Beam indicator Light Too Bright
Advice: If you need a tow vehicleDuramax/Allison combination seem to work well together. Noise level very accecptable for diesel engine. Ride is a little stiff when empty or not towing, but that is to be expected in a 3/4 ton vehcile.
Pros: The LT interior makes a 1000 mile drive feel like 50.
Cons: Loose fender molding
Advice: Forget Ford and Doge hypeThe test drive of the Silverado 2500 crew cab long bed pickup made us forgets all about the Ford F250 and Dodge 2500. The test drive also sold us on the value of the crew cab 4 door over the super cab version. OnStar navigation, advisor, and phone service are a real asset in case of an emergency assistance, getting lost, or dead air time from lack of cell phone service. The quiet Duramax 6600 Diesel engine purrs like a kitten and sounds like a gas V8 instead of a steel drum band on steroids.
