We just bought a new Chevy Silverado 2500..Duramax, Alison, LS model...about 3 or 4 months ago. This truck has been nothing but trouble. Everything that could possibly to wrong with GM's crappy engeniering did go wrong. We traded in our 2001 F-350 7.3L PSD..best truck possibly ever owned. I would give the world have it back over this heap. Time was taking it's toll on the Ford, but it still ran better and had better power, torqe, looks, and engine than this Silverado. I am a Ford man, but thought why not give the other guys a chance. Now I know why i'm a Ford man. GM just really lost themselves yet another consumer of their crap!!! Never will own another one again! Now i'm looking for a used F-250 with the old 7.3L possbly a 2002. We used the 2001 to tow our six horse trailer...no problem towed like a champ..but we sold it and got two 3 horse trailers...Sundowners...amazing trailers. So yeah

Based on your forum name and bio: "I'm 16 and on my first Expedition, well hopefuly my first of many. I love Fords hate GM with a passion:) I don't think you can get any lower than you are with a GM product:))).
Who would have imagined you'd have trouble with a GM?? Let us know what has actually gone wrong with "your" 3-month truck and maybe we can help? Or maybe not!

What was wrong with it? Power, torque, looks, engine? That should have been noticed before you bought it. A simple test drive would have been a good comparison.

Thanks for the info aik262. I'm hoping it will loosen up
as it wears.

Poorly designed front end. The front bumpers are painted where the slightest contact will mar the paint. Bring back
our chromed bumpers with vinyl rub strips.
If I have to buy a truck with a painted front bumper it will be a Toyota.

Of course that kids story is bogus. I have a new 2500HDwith the Duramax(360hp and 650 f/lbs of torque). Don't even try to tell me that any stock F-series engine makes even close to that power level. Yet he claims his old Ford was more powerful.I don't have anything against Ford diesels except they are noisy and the 6.0 seems to be a piece of crap(at least according to Ford).
