Best truck . The extended cab is very nice it has great leg room.

The truck has a duramax v8 engine. It takes diesel fuel which on the average cost about $1.00 more than regular gasoline. Diesel trucks runs louder than gasoline vehicles. The loudness will take some getting used to. It is so loud that when you go through a drive-thru service it's best to turn the truck off so that the person can hear you and you can hear them. The tires for this truck runs about $120.00 per tire. It takes two batteries to run the truck. The truck sits high which is very nice, I didn't know what I was missing because up on till then I drove small cars. During the winter months if the temps get really low, then you should plug in the batteries this will help to keep the diesel fuel from freezing up. The fuel is much thicker than gasoline so it is best to use the plug it in on severe cold weather days and nights. Over all I am very pleased with this truck.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500.

I have not had any problems as of yet. I love the dependability and performance of my truck. The diesel engine provides enough power to tow, haul and move anything I have to at work. As a machine operator I often have to move mini excavators and skid steers. The duramax pulls these with ease. It is comfortable to drive and feels really stable when hauling a trailer with a load. It gives me confidence that it will pull through. It is got ample space in the bed for any attachments or cargo. It looks great as well. Definitely recommend the Chevrolet Silverado 2500hd with the duramax if you are towing anything.

Big truck, small lady, mixture of disaster.

My truck is a lifted truck. It has a two inch lift. I am petite, so when it is a challenge for me to get into my truck. I drive it daily to and from work as well as on little trips. I spend on average like $100 on gas a week. It is a gas guzzler and I do hate that. But that is probably because it has 8 cylinders. So far it seems to be really reliable. I bought the truck from the a dealer back in may as used. Just once the water pump gave out but that was an easy fix for my uncle.
