2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD Diesel LT1

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LT1

This truck is extremely reliable. In the 13 months I have owned it, I have had zero issues. It is also a very comfortable vehicle to drive. I have taken numerous longer drives in it and have never felt like I need to step out and take a break. It has the cloth seats and I did swap out the jump seat for the center console. Everything also continues to work without any aftermarket parts and the vehicle is 13 years old. GM built an awesome truck.

Cab size is incredible for crew cab.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LT1

It's a Chevy. Really not much to say. Very reliable. Are the words I would use. Only a few maintenance issues here and there. But normal wear and tear. The bigger tires make it lousy on gas. But has enough power to pull just about anything. And its versatile in many situations.

- John T

Love the reliability and comfort of the vehicle.

2006 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD LT1

Very reliable. Very comfortable and roomy. Gets up and goes quick. Not all that great on gas of course considering it is a diesel. Features are very much old school such as locks, windows, stereo are all manual which is a major bummer. All in all for reliability it is great!
