I want to come back to the GMC/Chevy family. For over 20 years, I owned a 98 GMC Suburban, putting over 230k miles on it myself and LOVED the truck. I too owned a 2003 Chevy 1500...put many miles on it too.
I am looking at the GMC/Chevy 2500 series diesel trucks. I will stay within the 2016-2019 year range, with about $35k plus'ish budget. I might look at the 2021 trucks, only due to many deals/rebates etc.
What suggestions or tips are out there for these trucks? What should I watch out for and/or look at getting?
So, a few years ago, I bought a 2015 Ram 1500 4x4 EcoDiesel Lonestar -- well, I have been disappointed with Chrysler/Fiat (FCA). Short story, they lied about the ecodiesel, and after forced recall ECM update, they sucked all performance etc., from the truck. When I had my suburban, I never had so many recalls, been lied to, and never had poor performance.
Thanks, for any suggestions that you will provide. Gary

Anyone else have multiple issue regarding the lifters? I purchased a demo truck with 3900 miles on it back in early May. Started having engine issues almost immediately and had gotten all my lifters replaced recently, with under 7,000 miles on the truck. Spent almost a month at the dealer and finally got it back. They replaced all the lifters the first time and then a few weeks later it started having issues again.
Luckily with the market conditions today I was able to trade out and get a newer one but I gotta admit I'm concerned.
Anyone else dealing with this issue repeatedly?
I have 2014 Silverado and went to the gas station one morning and out of nowhere started smelling gas inside of the truck. Long story short, went to look underneath truck and had a 3x3 ft size puddle of fuel underneath truck on ground. Looked to see where it was coming from and looks like it’s coming from back side of motor. Can anyone help or recommend any action to take from this?
2019 Silverado RST 5.3.. 26k miles. Took it into dealer for software update and minor recall repairs and the truck has died twice in 4 days, luckily only while in park idling.
Interior lights and connections all still on but engine shuts off. Only way to restart is to disconnect the battery. Dealer says they can’t get the codes bc the battery was disconnected. No longer feel safe driving a Chevy. Will trade it in once repairs are done. Last 3 Chevy trucks have had some major issues prior to 36k miles. I’ve bought 7 chevys in the past 10 years.
dealer seems clueless to the service ESC problems with new model silverados.
So I got a letter from GM about a recall for a double charge on the Bright wheels #192279360. Supposed to be a refund check for $795. Perfect the problem is after speaking with the dealer they claim that GM is supposed to mail us a check. I am under the impression that the dealer is supposed to cut a check for the money. Anyone get a refund yet if so how and from who.
