"I PURCHASED THIS TRUCK NEW. I JUST RETURNED HOME FROM HAULING A 4 HORSE TRAILER WITH LIVING QUARTERS AND TWO HORSES FOR 2300 MILES. WHEN THE TRIP WAS COMPLETE I HAD 125,000 MILES ON THE TRUCK. IT STILL PULLED BETTER THAN ANYTHING I PASSED ON THE ROAD. BY FAR THE BEST PULLING TRUCK I HAVE EVER OWNED. REPLACED POWER STEERING HOSE AT 115,000. REPLACED FUEL PRESSURE VALVE AT 85,000. GREAT TRUCK!!!!!!"
"Purchased used at 48kmiles. Now at 103kmiles. No major problems. Duramax seems to run stronger when loaded . Rides great loaded or not. Plenty of room for work crew or family. Towed heavy equipment goose neck trailer, 21ft boat and large horse trailer, still seemed to have power to spare.
Would recommend this truck to anyone."
"8.1 has more than enough power don't appreciate it until you pull something. 30' fifthwheel with20' foot cuddy cabin boat behind fifth wheel. never needed any more power and get 9.5 to 10 miles to the gallon pulling."
"Got the duramax, I pull a car trailer and it is great. Seems like I never run out of power! The interior is quiet and offers a smooth ride for a 1 ton truck. Had a 1/2 ton Silverado 4x4 before this and not much difference in ride, but the 3500 has a lot more power."
