2002 Chevrolet Silverado k2500 HD 8.1
Chevy at its best again!!!
For some reason, the tranny wouldn't shift out of 3rd gear.
Other than that, it is the best truck ever.
This truck is awesome. It will accelerate at the same rate with a full load or not. And WOW!!!... the 8.1L will light up the tires, but at the same time as you're peeling out, you can watch the gas gauge move. IT LOVES the gas, actually about $90 a week or so.
The 6 speed tranny is not very good for going fast, actually the last 2 gears have almost no acceleration at all, it has to down shift into 3rd or 4th gear. but even with the 6 speed, it only gets about 8-10 MPG, but that is pushing the truck as far and as hard as it can go.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
