Default Pretty good discount

Jack picked up my HD 2500 yesterday, ext. cab, 4X4, Duramax, Allision auto, $4000.00 off sticker and $2000.00 rebate, and 4.65% interest on amount financed. Mine was a cheapie, so if ya get one with a lot of options you'll get more discount.

The difference is resale value. The chevy resale value is much higher than the ford. Bought and sold a few. Pound for pound and dollar for dollar the chevy is worth more than the ford. If you don't believe me look it up or try to sell a ford. GM does not have the wierd parts interchangability that ford does and for the most uses the same parts year after year. The fords have always been wierd parts and that they only fit a certain vehicle and don't interchange with other ford vehicles. Driving the cost of parts up. I got awesome fuel mileage out of the chevy 2500 with the 6Litre engine and 3.73 rear gears. 21mpg to be exact running 70mph and it was a 4x4. Try getting good mileage out of a ford. The most "I" have ever seen out of a PSD was 15mpg not pulling anything. Just do your homework and drive everything before you buy it!

I ordered a 2003 2500 HD crew cab. I got the LS package for $32000. Is this a good deal ? Is their any truth to the rumor that Chevy is rolling out 0% for 60 months on Monday ? Let me know if I got a raw deal and I will cancel and order from you.
Thanks

JackL, if you call or fax me your specifications, I will work you up a price. Then we can compare (I'm sure mine will be less ). Call me at 301-627-5700 or 240-299-0995. As far as 0% X 60mos goes...I haven't heard anything!

Thumbs down 2002 2500HD

I just traded mine in for a Auto.
My 2500HD had the worst gas 6.0 Lt engine ever. Tics,knocks,oil burning piece of Sh##t. I am a total chevy guru, but not a 6.0.
Truck was sweet, tow haul option a joke when towing 10,000 Lbs.
Just drop to 3 gear and run her out. My duelly 454 was the ultimat tow buggy. Belive me, I tow big sh##t.
Oh yeah, when starting my new/used 6.0 it pounded with all sorts of sounds I never heard before in a V8.
GM stated it was within the 45 second rule for start up rattles.
My 6.0 pounded untill 43 seconds. Kiss my white A$$ I said, traded it in the next week to another dealer. Hense, no more 6.0 for me. Maybe the deisel next time. Mr B3

P/S This was a small boat I hauled with my 2500HD. it was O/K to pull 8,500 Lbs with the 6.0 without tow haul being used. OD all the way. But you get heaver, it sucks.
