    I am planning to buy a used diesel truck for my realestate business. I would like to know the pros and cons of the 2500 Durammax trucks from 2003-2008. Any sources of info on this site I can read up on? Thanks.

    I don't know of any formal buyers guide on here but you can surf through the various threads that discuss any issues with Duramax diesels. My other suggestion would be to google search "mechanical issues with Duramax". I hope this helps and good luck with the search for a good reliable truck!!!!

    I googled it and found a good write up on the 5 diesel engine generations from WIKI starting with the problematic LB7 (2001-2004) to the LLY (2004-2005), LLY/LBZ (2006-2007), LMM (2007-2011).

    I think I am going to look for the 2007-2008 models. Thanks.

    You are very welcome. You will find there are a lot of people that are willing to help in any way they can. I have spent time on many different forums but this first and foremost is the best group of people I have found anywhere !!

    Unless you tow a trailer 35000 miles a year a Diesel isnt a cost effective buy.
