Default I love my GM Truck

2017 Siverado 6.2 liter, 8 speed transmission. 57k trouble free miles. Tows close to 10k lbs pretty well, scoots pretty well when you get on the throttle and is pretty damn comfy as well. That what I got.

Well I'm glad you have enjoyed your truck. I'm not getting into the pro/con GM debate, but I thank you for not using "flawless" to describe it, regardless of brand. Oh, and "bulletproof" too.

That's all I got.

My 2003 Chevy 2500 Suburban tows 10,000lbs like it's not even there. I don't care what anyone says, it's a shame they stopped building the 8.1 motor!

Love my 2012 Duramax too. 171k and 4630 hours on the engine. One dash crack on the passenger side, no issues from drive train but I think I will rebuild the steering components when it hits 200k because the play is starting to be noticeable. Other than that I've just maintained the normal stuff and roll with it. I would hook up to anything today and pull it across the country without batting an eye. I plan to keep this one a while!

Never grabbed one before we put it in the water, but here it is that bad boy in the water. It is a damn heavy 23'!

Wife has 2013 Silverado LT 4WD 5.3 Z71. Just turned 170K miles. Been a great truck,, need to sell it. Just bought leftover 2019 Silverado 5.3 4X4 with all the towing options. 30% below MSRP. Lets hope it's as good as the last,,

After 17K miles, my 2018 3500 Denali SRW 4x4 Duramax has been a great truck, but I expect it to fall apart any second now after reading all this GM love in here.

I think I saw 2-3 threads you havenít posted your story in. You should go post there just to make sure everyone is aware.

my 2017 has 5.3 but wish I had the 6.2. Otherwise it does everything I need towing 4,000 boat. Do you run premium grade fuel?

2008 Duramax bought new. Here she is a year ago starting the tow back to Alabama from Key West. Needs new speakers but other than normal maintenance, thatís it. 238k and dash, paint look great. I like mine.

We get it, you got a rare bad one. Look at all the ones still on the road. They're buying it back, move on.

Actually 3 of 3 GM trucks Iíve owned have sucked. A Ď95 Z71 had all sorts of little issues they could never get right. A Ď98 K2500 6.5L was terrible too. Figured after 22 years they may had finally learned to make a reliable truck after reading all the success stories on THT but yíall either lied or GM just canít make a decent diesel.

Donít worry I wonít make the mistake again.
