Pros

Very Fast and Powerful for  a truck, can beat most stock sports cars, Good Fuel economy for a truck 18-20mpg, Good handling for a truck, if you want it to roll coal it will leave a wall of a black cloud,  Good style in my opinion, Excellent sound, no real blind spots, no heavy repair or maintenance cost other than oil changes $60. Always feels like your in control.

Cons

2wd, squeeks when hitting bumps due to the traction bars, other drivers trying to challenge you at every light, little too touchy of a throttle when hitting bumps

Heck Of A Truck, Complete Monster That Still Has Potential For More. — Heck of a truck. Will get you where you need to go with a smile on your face. Real head turner not just for looks but the sound will turn heads too. EFI Live is awesome. Wish it was 4wd even though I never really need it.

I Call Her The Old Gray Mare!! — This truck is a workhorse. No issues to report. Starts everyday, pulls the 29' camper w/ ease & has plenty of room. It has dual flowmaster pipes and can be heard coming around the corner. Great truck to drive w/ awesome power.

Pros

more than ample power for towing or hauling. fairly quiet interior, as compared to other diesels (i.e. cummins or powerstroke) comfortable to drive

Cons

Diesels can cost more to maintain if not taken care of properly.

Impressive Beast. — The LLY is a good reliable duramax engine. Not has powerful as a LBZ (2006.5-2007) but decent fuel milage and it doesnt have all the emission crap on it. The LLY was proned to overheating, which is easily fixed by adding a cold air intake, which I did.

Pros

This truck pulls my 5th wheel RV like a dream.

Cons

There are a few things Chevy could have done to improve this truck. Like a lift pump at the tank.

Awesome Truck! — I love my Duramax! It's power is remarkable. I'd put it against any other diesel any day. Breaking is also very good with its 4 wheel disk breaks. Handling, they could have tightened up the suspension a bit and taken the bounce out of the front end.

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

Boss — Lots of muscle and very dependable. I got over 263000 miles on him and he never gives me problems. Bought it second hand in 2012 and it's been my best friend ever since. Only major downfall it's no four wheel drive and the fuel economy is terrible.

Pros

great truck to get thing done. I use it for everything from loading a whole pallet of cynder blocks to load of stone,dirt to even taken garbage down. This truck is a great truck to plow with.

Cons

Unfortunately i think it has just reached its age for  things to break. I have recently replaced the starter,alternator,AC got a pin hole in the line,the brake lines went, replaced battery, and both exhaust manifolds rotted out. besides the regular maintance of tires brakes etc. Now that that is all fixed truck purrs like a kitten. No problem with the engine or transmission

Tough Truck — As i put in pros and cons in this review, this truck performs. I have owned chevrolet trucks since 1994 and they seem to only get better with more options. The truck has always completed the task that i put it through. This truck gets only about 10 to 12 mpg city with its 6.0 litre 300 horsepower. for the money this is a great truck. Now that all the odds and ends have broken. I suspect I should be good for another 8 years.

My 6.0l (aka White Trash) — This truck is awesome only downfall is the fuel economy, the 6.0L likes er fuel, but with chip the performance is very impressive, it has kept up with a ford escort, not much of a feat however compare the weights... very fun to drive i like this truck, far more versatile than the old noma
