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

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

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.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LS

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.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

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.

Does not get spectacular fuel mileage.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

I own a 2005 Chevrolet 2500hd Duramax diesel, it is a very reliable vehicle that has never left me stranded! Luxurious leather interior with bucket seats that you may even mistake as your own personal couch. This model of truck come stock with a trusty 305whp and an automatic 5 speed Allison 1000 transmission that shifts thru the gears like butter,

- Eric M

Trustworthy and roughly awesome.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

Not many problems even at two hundred and fifty thousand miles the only problems seem to be with the sensors. And I have had to replace the radiator recently and had factory tires up until last year. Other than that it has held up for me completely not to much bad things to say about it Chevy makes a good truck.

- Tony P

Looks great but be prepared to spend

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Work Truck

The truck looks great and drives great but we have had so many mechanical issues! Everything from the batteries to the fuel lines and the alternator and the water pump injector you name it we've had to fix it! We have only had the truck a year and have already put about $18,000 into the truck


The truck is basically brand new as far as the mechanical stuff.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LS

We have had several problems with this truck. We have replaced the transmission, the water pump twice, the oil pump, the entire engine, the head gaskets, it has a boost leak now, we've also replaced the turbo and the injectors too but it has never left us stranded in the side of the road.

Take care of the vehicle. If not taken care of it will give you problems.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

I have a 2005 Chevrolet Silverado. It has been modified with a lift & big tires. So it makes my ride a little rough. But I have had the same truck in the past & it was overall a comfortable ride. It is very roomy & spacious. Not bad gas mileage. It is very reliable if well taken care of.

- Summer B

Chevy transmission should have a recall.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

The Chevy 2500hd is a great work truck, but it has some issues that seem to happen to a lot of the Chevys from this year. Its comfortable to drive. Has more than enough power to pull heavy loads. But there are issues with the transmission and brake system, issues I was not expecting.

- Nicole H

Things not to buy when looking for a truck.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

Too many miles on the truck. Its need a gearbox. Sometimes its slow to start up. But it's really not a bad truck. You just have to keep it up. But for the mileage on the truck, it still a nice looking though. If your in the market for one of these I highly recommend a silver 2500.

- Roderick P

2500 Chevy truck, the truck that is built to last.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

Love it but the interior fabrics come off. And cloth seats don't last. The engine and parts of the truck are great. Only thing I've changed is a water pump. Other than that haven't had any issues. It pulls the trailers and tractors very well. I've enjoyed every part of this truck.

- Austin C

If u get one but a bigger turbo on it.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

It is been a good truck for me not a lot problems out of it I have done lots of performance upgrades to it bigger turbo on it tuning aftermarket air system. Etc. pulls my camper without a problem. The only thing that has gave me fits in my front end has went out twice.

- Tyler T

- Cozy J

It likes to use fuel with a small fuel tank. I get 7-8 miles to the gallon when towing and the gas tank is 26 gallons. Not a far range.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

The truck is strong enough to pull my camper. Wish it had a little more power and a bigger fuel tank. Has been a great vehicle for 6 years that i have owned it. Very comfortable and does some good work.

- Jon C

My likes of my truck, and what I want to do!

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

I like the power of the duo max engine. I like the fuel mileage that it gets. I would like to chip the engine to get a little more performance out of it, but haven't had that done yet.

- Ole F

It has very spacious seating. Comfortably seats 6 people. The only thing that slightly sucks is there are no cd/cassette/aux options without buying a new stereo.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

My truck is fantastic! I'm the second owner and the person I got it from took great care of it! I'm traveling and it carries a camper in the bed of it with ease up hills and mountains.

- Reese N

Being a 4x4 truck and being a bigger truck you don't get good gas mileage.

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

We have had the truck for over 10 years and it still runs like new. The worst about it is the body had rust out a lot which does is common for Chevy. But it is very dependable.

- Glenda W

That even after almost 250,000 miles it runs fantastic!

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

I like my Chevy truck because it is 13 years old, has 225,000 miles and runs great. It is heavy duty has a winch a diesel extra tank in bed of it. Rugged, reliable.

The Allison transmission is important for dependability and ease of towing.

Expensive when it comes to gas

2005 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD

It's a nice car. The only issue I really have with it is that it is a gas guzzler. We spend almost 25 dollar a day on gas.
