Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Reviews

Purchased my 2006 4X4 HD 2500 6.0L Crew Cab Short Bed 11/20/2005. Overall this has been an amazing truck. 6 month after purchasing new it had some electrical issues. Fortunately factory warranty covered everything. At 60,000 miles front driver hub went, $800 at Les Schwabs. At 100,000 miles another trip to Schwabs for the passenger side and another $800. The truck now has 240,000 miles and other then the hubs I have only had routine maintenance. Great truck, I hope to break the 400,000 mark with no major problems like some of the other reviews I have seen online.

Great Truck!!! I have a six speed stick and at 190K, it still avg about 20 MPG. I remember a recall in 2006, the dealer replaced the fuel injectors. Since 2008, when someone got in and stole the stereo/ tore the dash apart - it has had a few electrical issues. Replaced the transmission at 189K, finally time to get a new set of glo plugs at 190k. Overall my total avg cost has been .65 cents a mile. My last truck was a dodge ram V10 which cost me $1.00 per mile.

I have had problems with my injectors. they replaced them at Days Chevrolet supposable all of them under a recall. But the issues are coming back and it's only been two years with 30,000 miles put on the motor after the fact! And just recently my transmission and engine temp gauge are pinned out past max temp.and will not move. I thought it might be a ground issue considering both happened within a week of each other. But that's not it, can anyone out there help with this issue?

320,000 miles and still running strong...have have had the normal run of the mill problems but otherwise no complaints
