"My Silverado has been a dream; the only nightmare is the fuel economy in stop-and-go driving. If you want to calculate the mileage of the 6.0 vortec, think of the hour meter on a tractor. It's similar to that. She gets approximately the same gallons per minute of use, regardless if you are doing 75mph on the freeway or 7.5mph on a dirt road. Other than that I highly recommend the Chevy Silverado 2500 with towing package."

"Bought this new in April 2001. This a lb7 duramax diesel. At 120,000 miles injectors go bad and gm would not cover $5200 for this repair in 2008. 6 wheel bearing repairs 4 lhf and 2 rhf. Cost $2400.00 total . Water pump repair $700 in 2009. Computer goes out $500 2011. Water pump is leaking and head gasket is bad $ 4000 June 2013. Another wheel bearing going bad $500. This is the worst chevy truck that I have ever bought. Being a gm owner all my life I find it unbelievable that gm would not stand behind the quality of their product after they promoted this truck as the best truck ever. The diesel motor and Allison transmision costs $7200.00 more than the gas when you buy the truck . Put over $ 15000 in maintenance cost on this truck with a diesel motor. Not worth it ."
