- V-6 extremely under-powered for truck, V-6 suspension too soft for ANY type of hauling.
I am a die hard Chevy owner. This truck was definately built on a Friday afternoon. Three days after purchase, ignition coil died, then a few more electrical connections that were defective (from factory) and other misc problems. Luckily, the gremlin living in my truck left for another unsuspecting victim. Once the little discrepancies stopped (8 weeks) I started to enjoy my truck as I hoped. Be aware of a few things with the "Work Truck" package with a V-6. The engine is strong until you put a medium load in the truck or pull a trailer, GM's new electronic shifting in the transmission takes some getting used to. And for those who pull some weight or a trailer.....the new transmission design "Locks" the trans into 2nd gear when you manually select 2nd. This means it does NOT even downshift into 1st when you come to a stop, it stays in 2nd PERIOD. You must select 3rd or drive for the trans to downshift to 1st or manually shift into 1st when you stop. I discovered this as I occassionaly pull a heavy trailer in a hilly area and I used to just leave my '97 GMC in 2nd to help with downhill speeds and keeping the RPM's up while climbing a hill. I have not lost hope with "CHEVY". I actually just bought another 2004 Silverado. I really need the power/torque of the V-8 and the hauling abilities that the V-6 "Work Truck" could not live up to. I'm loving my V-8 and heavier suspension on the V-8 "Work Truck" package. GO CHEVY.....!!!!!!!
