    We are looking at getting a 07 or 08 chevy 2500, just wondering if you have had any problems with yours.

    Are you happy with your truck?

    Thanks

    I do not have a ton of experience with the new LMM duramax's(newest engine code) but I have a 2006 LBZ duramax and love it. I would reccomend getting a 06-07(classic body style) LBZ over the new LMM.

    have a classic 07. its been pretty good. its been in the shop three times, for door handle replacement, three engine recalls, and a rattle in passenger door. im guessing it was pretty well abused from the previous owner. and i already had to replace the speakers. other than that, not to bad. i only have to keep it for another year or so.

    I have a 2008, lmm, newest engine code. These things are great and have had 0 problems. I have almost 8k on the truck and have been very happy with it. The power behind these things is insane. You'll be happy with yours

    I love my 02 GMC Duramax. I'm at over 120,000 now with no major problems. I think it's the best choice among the big 3. Another vote for you to head over to www.dieselplace.com
