Overall:

The truck had poor suspension, and tires rubbed the wheel well when making turns greater than 20 degrees. Also the dealer forgot to mention that the vehicle was not suppose to be driven for test drives as they were selling the truck to Auction.

It’s a good truck with the 6.0 gas engine that has a Chevy 6 speed transmission but I prefer the 6.6 Diesel engine that has a lot more torque then the gas engine also has a very strong Allison transmission .

Overall It Does What I Bought To Do — This is a great vehicle for towing larger 5th wheel trailers and RV's. The fuel economy, while not great, is not too bad when towing considering the weights that I am pulling with it. The economy factor when not towing is poor, even with the installed chiip. Overall I am happy with the vehicle, although the ride is very rough due to the heavier suspension package installed for towing.

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

Pros: This is the Cummins Diesel package and is very poweful and useful for towing my 5th wheel trailer.

Cons: Poolr fuel economy, but better with chip

Best Diesel Hd Truck — I like everything about this truck except the fuel consumption and initial price, but I knew what to expect when I bought it, so no tears. Make sure you want/need a diesel because fuel is 20% more expensive than gasoline. Then get a Chevy/GMC. It has better fit and finish than the Dodge, and is much more reliable and rides better than the Ford. The engine/transmission combination cannot be matched by either. I was very preferential to the Ford originally, but I did my homework, test drove all three and completely preferred the Chevy.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: 60,000 miles and zero repairs.  It has a finer ride than any luxury car I have ever driven.  Power galore.  Diesel engine is smooth, quiet, and reliable.  Transmission works flawlessly with engine.  Fit and finish has been perfect.  GM makes by far the finest HD diesel truck on the market.

Cons: 13.5 MPG city  17.5 MPG highway.  Expensive initial purchase.

No, Im Not Compensating, Thank You Very Much... — The buld quality is evident in the way it rides. GM really put the effort in this truck. The only complain I have is the fuel economy, and the fact that when cruising, although it saves gas, it will pop into the next gear. When you slowly accelerate (unless you push the pedal down far enough for the rpms to jump high enough) it will stay in the same gear and slowly accelerate. Thats why my next step is a tune or some sort of bolt ons. Towning with it is a breeze, Ive towed boats, and campers. Never a problem. Maintenance is pretty simple for the most part as long as your mechanically inclined. Parking can be a problem. Its got the full 4 doors and 8' bed. But I wouldnt trade it for the world.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: For primary use... Thats an unfair question. below. I use it for everything from bringing decoys in and out of the field when I go hunting, and as daily transport to work. I also use it for towing my camper and boats. Cant pick just one.

Cons: Parking because of its size, everything is made around economy cars these days. Since its a gasoline motor, not diesel, it sucks gas like no tomorrow.

Hate To Sell But Need More Room — Performance is great. No aftermarket chip/programmer ever. Very eye- catching looks. extra fuel tank is nice so you can find cheaper diesel. Has gooseneck hitch B&W turnoverball. All maintenance has been done by chevy dealers. New tires all the way around.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: lots of power, comfortable to drive

Cons: needing to sell it for a suv

Best Damned Truck I Have Ever Owned. — I pulled my 5th wheel holiday trailer nearly 6,000km to Dawson City and back, not an ounce of problems for the whole trip. The 6.6l diesel engine eats the long hills for breakfast. Very comfortable seats for those 6 hour drives.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: big pulling abilities, loves the hills.

Cons: a little heavy on the fuel but the diesel engine isn't even broken in yet.  Only 37,000km in the first year.

Its Well Worth The Money If Your A Trucker, But If Not.. You May Want To Consider Something Smaller — I love chevy trucks.. the 2008 / 2009 2500HD LTZ is beyond a doubt one of the best chevy has made.. if not the best.. it handles really well for a big truck, even taking this truck off roading it handles perfectly.. the only thing that should be changed.. is the appearance, its really nice but I think GM can make it look a little more beefy

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

Pros: great for hauling, towing, off roading, easy controls, great performace

Cons: price tag, on-star, Vtech, size

Chevy Truck — Very nice truck on the interior I'll give them that. But as far as engine it sucked it was a diesel and it put bad fumes in the cab of the truck so bad that it would cause headaches and tearing up your eyes. I lemon law the truck back to Chevy.

Pros: Great Interior

Cons: Suckie Motor / Exhaust
