About Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Extended Cab

The Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD trucks are Chevrolet's line of heavy-duty pickups meant for hauling big loads and other applications where power is the priority. Like its GMC twins the Sierra 2500 HD/3500 HD and heavy-duty rivals from Ford and Ram, the Silverado HD comes in a variety of trims, from just-the-basics to versions with leather interiors and premium sound systems. Also like its rivals, the Silverado 2500 HD and 3500 HD can be had with a gasoline or diesel engine, the latter of which has exceptional – but not class-leading – towing capacity. For 2013, a bi-fuel system is available on the 2500 HD that can run on gasoline or compressed natural gas, the latter of which has the potential to provide cost savings depending on where fuel prices go.

"Interior and exterior look good. Drives and rides good. Solid engine, four wheel drive, clear title, never wrecked or had any problems. Check engine light came on and had scanned for problem. Scan showed transmission component slipping. Truck changes gears smoothly when first started and after a short drive gear changes are not smooth. Good solid truck but will need sensors replaced or some other transmission work done."

"I have many complaints about this truck. Why do the lights flicker when the turn signal, hazards or brake lights come on? This truck also has this strange popping/creaking noise coming front when accelerating that the dealer says is normal. Interior storage is horrible. The Gas 6.0 isn't very grunty, but it guzzles gas like crazy. Transmission is erratic. Interior is cheap and full of squeaks and rattles. Rough engine idle. Dashboard will buzz with engine idle and slow acceleration. Brake fluid reservoir leaks like crazy. Engine oil leak at 9500 miles. And now the truck's transmission slips with 2nd to 3rd gear shifts. I've also had brake issues that were fixed by the dealer. I'm planning to take it BACK to the dealer to hopefully get the transmission fixed, but nothing can change my mind about this truck now. This has been very disappointing from the start. What will this truck be like with 100k miles? It only has 14k miles!"

An engine oil leak???

"Our companys trucks have been in and out of the shop from day one. I question some of the people that say how great these trucks are. Both of our company trucks have been having nothing but problems. I just spotted an oil leak on one the other day. It also has problems with a pretty bad engine knock. The other truck has electrical problems in the dashboard/instrument cluster, a tranmission that shifts extremely hard out of park and a driver's door panel that doesn't fit correctly. Both trucks have brake problems that just won't go away. Too many problem for $35,000-$45,000 vehicles with under 10,000 miles."
