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.
I have a 2006 2500hd with the duramax and alliason trans the only good part with truck is the engine and trans combo. front wheel bearings have both gone out before 50,000 a glow plug went out before 80,000 the thing eats rear tires up in @30,000 the front bounces all over the place. the air condition dryer rusted out in less than 100,000 all the cheap brake lines and trans lines are failing do to rust should have used stainless lines the brakes have been poor since day one the truck just won't stop. this will be the last chevy truck i buy
I have a 2006 Silverado 2500HD' 50845 miles. Purchased new. Daylight operating lights, tail lights,and blinker lights have to be replaced often. Lamps are not blown. Base of lamp crystallized and no longer make contact in socket. Front end of this truck, bumps, bumps, bumps when turning left or right. $63.00 dealer will put grease in column and for 16000 miles, it doesn't bump. When stopping, brakes depress below the hieght of gas-pedal allowing your foot to depress both. Truck tries to stop and pull forward. It doesn't take much gas for the 6.0 engine to outpush the brake pedal. Air conditioner switch and wiring harness failed and they say they will reimburse my cost if I provide certain information. I did, they lost check copies of payment. Now Chevy wants copy of my monthly bank statement. Chevy rep called service parts and service center and talked with repairman. I'm glad I wasn't broke and needed it to pay a bill. Anybody with any ideas. I have a 2003 silverado 1500 with all the same problems except the brakes and air conditioner. I replaced all the wiring harnessed and they installed a new steering column. 16000 miles and another 62 dollar charge, it still bumps bumps bumps everytime you turn left or right.
Bought this truck new 12/29/05 and now have 163,000 miles with many more to go. Fit and finish on this truck was excellent and remains that way to this day. Had to replace the multifunction switch at 150,000, piece of cake, $109.00 at carquest, $545.00 at the dealer. Have changed 4 glow plugs on passenger side for 14.99 each at O'Reilly (Delco)other than this just normal service when computer says service(LT model). Kinda tough on tires, other than that the best vehicle I have ever owned and at 57 years old I have had many. Always been a GM guy and will continue when I buy another.
I've got a 2006 6.0 gas 2500... it seemed to be missing a little at idle changed plugs today and it is now idling rougher and when I give it gas its very sluggish.. what could possibly be causing this???
Bought my 2500hd 4x4 crew cab new in 2006. It seems all the 6.0 gas trucks get poor gas mileage due to the fact that the only gears available were 410s. This causes higher rpm at freeway speeds. I run 285 tires which slows things a bit but I can only eek out 14 if I'm carefull. Still looks awesome with the A.R.E. canopy. I love this truck! Other than the poor gas mileage my only complaint is that the little lights on the steering wheel have burned out. We do some serious wheeling and towing and I've talked to several guys with over 200k on theirs with no serious trouble.
2006 2500HD Duramax/Allison. Great truck, very comfortable inside and all the power you can ask for. about 110,000 miles, checked trans fluid looks like brand new. No smell or scorch and I tow alot. Few lights have gone bad on dash, radio and steering wheel controls but nothing lasts for ever. Has been a nearly flawless truck for over 5 years now.
Naomi & I have definitely seen some miles together.. Her quirks definitely shape her personality: passenger door light occasionally staying on (usually on dates) or passenger tow mirror controls refusing to work if we've been pulling too many all-nighters towing, and many more. I'm definately impressed with my truck's ability to take everything I dish at and seemingly ask for more. As long as I take care of 'Ole Naomi, she'll take care of me. Now I don't truly believe that my truck is possessed, I know she is nothing more than metal & computer chips. I'll call it being in tuned with your machine.. with enough time you'll be able to tell when something is off; be it a glow plug, 4wd controller, or just a being quart low.
