Strong And Reliable — This truck is loaded with everything on it that you could order. I bought it new in 2003. this is a great riding reliable comfortable truck. I've maintained it perfectly since it was new. I have had very little problems with it. I hope every truck I own from chevrolet in the future is as good as this one. Even with 250,000 miles on it I'm looking for many more miles.

Good For Family Decent On Diesel — This truck is great for off-road, and pulling anything, the engine quality is good minus the injector problems chevy didnt tell anyone about, its build quality is fair, sqeaks, intirior falls apart too easy, it looks decent but better with modifications, really fun to drive when performance parts are on it.

Primary Use: Family transportation

2003 Chev 2500 Hd 4wd Duramax Diesel — This pickup is powered by the 6.6L Duramax Diesel with the 5 speed Allison Transmission. A number of modifications made to drivetrain giving it about 360HP and 620 lbs torque. On the outside threw on a couple of chrome accents to make it perdy too. At normal highway speeds gets 20-22 mpg. Not bad for a 7,000 lb truck! Currently has 120K miles and still running strong. Too bad the price of diesel got so high. It was my everyday driver.

Pros

The truck is a great truck. 4x4 is great and can pull decent weight.

Cons

gas mileage is not the best. but this is the 6.0 gas engine and not the duramax.

6.0 Gas Not A Bad Truck I Just Want More. — I love the look of the 03-early 07 silverados. The gas 6.0 engine has plenty of power for my uses. I was able to pull a 10000 lbs load through the mountains realitively pain free. dont get me wrong the truck was screamin but it got it done. A little too heavy to be taken trough soft mud but handles fine off road. I love the truck.

Very Dependable Truck!! — I love that there is so many possibilities with a truck, and this truck is very dependable. Not necessarily a family vehicle but it has PLENTY of room for a single family. And it has the fifth wheel for a goose neck.

Great American Made Truck. — Very powerful truck, great for towing. Strong six liter engine pulls anything. Looks nice and rides even better. It sucks down the fuel but it is worth it. Now i live in a three truck family. Just need some rims and tires and Ill be set.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Great Work Truck — Build Quality: Havent had it too long, but so far no problems. My dad also has one, and has had no problems with his Car Comparisons: Considered the 2500HD and the Chevy 1500. Picked the HD because of the durability and how well they hold value Performance: Obviously not a race car. Has incredible torque however. Doesnt like going fast (

Pros

Because the exhaust rocks

Cons

496 V-8 does kind of drink the gas

It's Mine And I Like It — It's roomy plenty of space for the 3 of us and all the crap we carry, it has lots of power, gets pretty good gas mileage. and it is fun to drive since it has no muffler :) the 7" tv and subs also help.

Farm Truck — This is a great truck for the work needed around the farm. with the long bed you can haul everything you need without making to many trips back and forth. I use it for hauling hay and towing all my equipment.
