I'm told all new 2500HD orders are on hold pending new emissions requirements. Should I consider a used diesel instead of a new one w/emission controls?

Yeah, yeah ... I screwed up. Just came from a Dodge dealer trying to compare before jumping in.





I screwed up. Sorry guys. WTF well deserved!





Now that I set the record straight, should I buy the used Duramax or order new with the chance of having to take emission controls or is the Dodge guy blowing smoke?

I just picked up a new '04 2500HD off the lot, it still has the '03 (non-emissions) motor. You might be able to find what you are looking for on the lot, plus they have $3500 cash back ($2500 plus up to $1k down-payment-matching).


I was about to buy Ford, but they have had so many problems with their emissions PSDs for '03, I didn't want to chance similar issues with the '04s.


I landed the non-emmissions '04 Dmax by luck, and I'm glad I did.
