I couldn't agree more.Copperhead said:. Maybe not as quickly as a diesel, but just as effective.
Sometimes it just pays to stick with something that works. And a Vortec L96 6.0, 6L90, 4.10 just plain works and works and works.
about 4 months ago I got an 08 2500HD LT with a duramax that had only 35000 miles for 26,900. I prefer older low mileage vehicles adn let someone else take the HUGE depreciation hit. I could have gotten a newer 11 or 12 that had 100,000-150,000 miles but perfered the lower mileage because I only drive about 12000 a yearJasen said:12.5k is average.
Kind of comes down to how many miles you drive a year. I drive older rigs, so I stick to the 12.5k rule of thumb.
I drive 10-12k a year, so a rig with around 100k should last me about 10 years before it starts trying to steal my nickles and dimes.
My last two used rigs were 10 (Toyota) and 8 (Chevy)yo, both with 100k and I put on another 110k and 140k over 9 and 12 years, the 06 Sierra had 128k when I got it in February.
