Why I had to Switch Trucks | Chevy Diesel Issues

I had to get a new truck due to problems with the new Chevy Silverado 1500 with the 3.0 turbo Duramax diesel not working like it should. Luckily I was able to get back home and my local Chevy dealer helped me out.
Shout out to Joe & Toby at Classic Chevy in Grapevine for getting me in a new ride FAST!

  • I have the Chevy Colorado diesel. I love the torque. It is so cool to climb a big hill on the hwy and it doesn’t downshift. No screaming gas engine. Downshifting all the time. Great tow rig to. Amazing mileage 30-32mpg Don’t want a gasser any more...

  • I live in Springtown and have the exact same truck, just with the 5.3 and I've had a ton of issues that the 8 speed transmission and have had two rounds of window leaks. I've been dealing with James Woods Chevrolet in Decatur and I've even had techs ride along with me. They pretend the truck is just fine, and after all the love you're giving to Classic Chevrolet in Grapevine I'm going to go to take it there.

  • They lost all reliability when they went bankrupt and they needed to cut corners to save money. It would be nice if Toyota would make a diesel in USA.

  • That transmission is garbage, my denali effed enough to be embarrassing, but not enough to convince the dealership. GM effing sucks. Also-good luck with catalytic, will fall apart at 15k miles and you. Will rattle. Again enough to drive you nuts...

  • @lakeforkguy any suggestions or point of contact for truck issues? I bought a 2020 GMC Sierra Denali with carbon pro package and my 6.2 motor went out at 177 miles. Everyone seems to believe GM should put me in a new truck but seems that GM doesn’t believe so. Any help would be great. Thanks

  • Ahh, the joys of owning a GM truck. I had a brake line blow while towing my boat two weeks ago. I’m currently in the process of putting in stainless fuel and brake lines and undercoating the frame since GM couldn’t be bothered to do such things at the factory. Managed to slice my hand on one of those rusty brake lines and had to get a tetanus shot. Loving my Chevy experience. Of the five GM trucks in my family, all have the same problem. Like a Rock? More like a bucket of rust.

  • 3k miles on my GMC 3.0L Duramax. So far so good. I've towed ~7k a few hundred miles too without issue, but it does drink the DEF while towing, which is to be expected. I've used one tank of DEF so far with about 600 of 3k miles towing.

  • All modern half ton diesels are garbage due to emissions. That's why I went with the 5.3 gas. 0 issues on my 2020 LTZ! I can deal with burning more gas and higher revs while towing the boat. Hope you have better luck with this one!

  • Justin brother, ya messed up. Chevrolet quality has been going down the drain for years now. In terms of diesel, Cummins is the best engine, but the trucks they're strapped to fall apart. Power stroke is a good middleground. Good trucks, good engines. Just my opinion tho

  • Hey sounds great that Chevy dealer did that for you. But how about doing a video about the average Joe that experiences similar issues on a new truck but gets stonewalled by the dealer, by the manufacturer, and then waits 3 years for lawyers and lemon laws to determine that they are still fucked. Why don't you do a video on that? Just don't post videos as if anyone can walk into their dealer and get taken care of in 10 minutes. The only reason they took care of you is they know you have a large audience. Please don't post something like this again. Makes you look very disingenuous.

  • Diesels will always get better mpg than gas. They’re just a lot messier to work and maintenance them. Plus, I despise DEF fluid. The government mandated that in ALL diesel vehicles use it, and line guys at airports put DEF fluid into a few airplanes mistaking it for another fluid additive called prist, and DEF in planes causes the fuel system to clog up since it turns to gel, jamming the fuel filters and causes engine flameouts. It’s happened numerous times.

  • Thinking you fixed a problem and getting another problem is the problem. Gm has been garbage since 2007, and that's coming from a long time gm fan. Their gas motors with cylinder deactivation burn oil, transmissions are junk, rear ends make noise and to top it off they are the ugliest looking truck on the road today imo. 2006 and older are the good gm trucks. Been happy with ford and ram now and days I have one of both.
