2006 LT3 3500 4WD Crew Dually
Powerful, nice ride, quiet
Tire problems, drivetrain problems (4WD and Manual Shifting), cheesy interior furnishings, lousy paint job. Interior storage is bad.
Gas mileage is 14 mpg avg. Truck has a nice ride. Quiet diesel engine. XMS radio is nice, but $14/mo is a lot for a radio. Have not had much use for Onstar other than the phone portion, just a cell phone, not a satellite phone so it only works where your normal service works. Obviously a large truck and very hard to park. Comfortable leather seats. Great stereo system. However, in the less than five months and under 4000 miles I have found the interior furnishings to be cheesy. Drink cup holders suck, my drinks tip over easily. The furnishings are cheap; carpet, plastic parts break easily, etc. I use the truck in the mountains each weekend and find that the 4WD fails to engage quite often. The “Service 4WD” warning comes on all the time when I try to use it and of course techs can’t duplicate the problem. I do not have a liner in the bed, but even without a liner I find that the paint job there is lousy. Scratches very easily. Also, I have found that the front tires are all chewed to pieces like the front end can not handle the weight. When in manual shifting, shifting from 2 to 1 with the controller (+ -), the drive train sounds like metal grinding.
