Pros

Great towing vehicle. Comfortable ride.

Cons

Gas mileage. With the 8.1 you get 10mpg whether on the Highway or city streets.

Love It. — Overall the vehicle is great. Towing power is phenom. However with the 8.1 engine the gas mileage is poor. A whopping 10mpg on highway or city. Ugh. Otherwise the truck is awesome. Leather interior, heated seats, onstar and 4wd. Bring on the snow.

Pros

the whiplash from the torque

Cons

too much torque for the transmission

Never Drivin Gas Again — Duramax Power is where its at. the power to push a 7000 lb truck faster then most ricer, more torque then a ferrari, ca[pable of pulling a house and still getting 17-22 mpg. diesel, not hybrid/electric is the way of the future

Reliable, good condition, cold A/C, spray-in bedliner, 4x4.  Great price!!

It's a big truck in a busy city.  Not economical.  A few dents and scratches around the truck.

Been A Great Truck That's Served Its Purpose For Me. — I liked everything about this truck except the gas mileage. I now have 3 cars and one parking spot. I am forced to part ways with the truck I've owned for 10 years. If I were in the market for this type of truck I would certainly give this one a look.

Pros

Great truck, plenty of power

Cons

It was very plan, no features beyond the basics.

Great Truck — This truck was big burly and had a ton of muscle. It would pull anything you wanted it too barring you had enough money to pay for the fuel. It was rugged and took any beating. But it was not with out fail. There was always issues of things on the truck that would fail, fuel pump was one of those parts. As well as the transmission and a few sensors. These were all at the cost of the truck running until it hit 250K miles. This is an example of the old saying " they just don't build em like they used too" It may have had its issues but it had lasted through a lot of miles. I dont feel that the newer silverados would even come close in comparison.

The 2500hd — my 2500hd has the biggest motor to ever come from the factory in a stock light duty truck. it sports the vortec 8100 which is a 496ci big block. and it has the allison 1000 seires transmission which everyone knows is bullet proof, and it will pull WHATEVER you put behind it

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Like A Rock — Rough, tough, and reliable, this truck can do it all. The 8' bed can handle anything I put in it, the interior is comfortable for commuting, and it can tow over 10,000lbs. Put a plow on the front and it is a money making machine in the winter!

Silverado 2500hd — Not much that i dont like about my truck. It does everything I want. I just want to make the apperance classier with a nice grill and bigger rims (16s are a little small). I wish I had more time so i could wash it.
