Yes, tis a sad day here in Minnesota.....
You may have read my earlier posts extolling the virtues of the 2005 Chevrolet
Silverado 2500HD diesel crew cab we purchased... I have claimed, IN THE PAST,
that of the vehicles I've owned in the past 40 years this is the most perfect...
Well, it still gets 18.5 mpg when not towing and running down the highway at 75
mph. And it STILL gets better mileage TOWING the 5th wheel than the Dodge
Ram did when NOT towing... And its still marvelously comfortable and at the
end of the day ou feel good instead of exhausted......
BUT, all is not well... Yes, there has been discovered a problem with the
truck... The driver's side seatbelt pulley at the top of the seat back
I was forced to pop the cover off and spray a bit of lubricant on the pulley to
silence the annoying intermittent squeak........
I hereby stand corrected. The truck is not perfect... Everything is gloomy!
Okay, okay, I'm kidding... But you's guys are BORING. Things were SO MUCH more
lively over in the Dodge newsgroup where there was a constant barrage of major
problems, and whining, bitching, moaning, and generally swearing they'd "never
buy another Chrysler product"... 'Course its only been 12,000 miles and at
112,000 I may be swearing at this thing, but so far one of the happiest days of
my life is turning out to be the day I handed the dealer the keys to that #@$%*#
18 mpg with a 7000 lb vehicle with the aerodynamics of a kitchen sink!
