Hey buddy how did you get to drive that truck? and how was that performance? after tha dpf crap . I drove a new f250 with all the emisions crap and I think the 2006 are faster and have a better take off, I bet is all the crap under the body. did you feel any diference from the Lbz and the lmm in performance? and if you did was it for the worst or the better. I order my truck with dual alt. I hope that's not what caused them to cough on fire:mad: not

If its a recall then why would GM BS about it being the alts if its actually the DPF? I ordered one and can't wait. Oh and if it has problems I guess they'll have to fix it. I held off on the 07 Classic to get the 07.5. I can't stand to pay that much for a vehicle that will be outdated in 2 months.

the truck was nice, it drove like the LBZ but was a little slower on the take off. other than that it felt like a LBZ.....a little stiff in the suspention but a nice ride. and dont ask me how i got to drive it. the dealership didnt even know they had the truck until i pointed it out. they had no invoice for it and the guy told me they'd sell it to me for 40K on the spot without and invoice. haha

well this one didnt burst into flame but other have, so im guessing that a little problem that GM needs to address, there for they are recalling the LMM's with the problem.

I respectfully disagree with you that a 07 Classic is outdated. The design, body style, and duramax/Allison combination are a key part of this classic marque. It's almost like saying that a 67 Corvette is outdated. Like the Corvettes, these trucks will stay highly desireable by the general public and enthusiasts for many years to come. JMO

I couldn't find a recall either...

It's all BS and hearsay until it is on paper.

You're right, I guess I'm a little crabby from all the snowblowing I've had to do over the past week or so. Plus my truck is so dirty from the salt and snow that it is driving me crazy.:banghead:

OK I agree in part. I consider a 67 Corvette a classic not an 07 Silverado(only time will tell). The current model Silverado has been an awesome truck and still is and will be for a long time. I just would prefer the new model vs. the current classic and maybe using "outdated" was the wrong choice of words. "Redesigned" model might work better.

Wait until you are out running around and can't find ULSD to fill the tank. That is why you want the Classic because nationwide mandate for ULSD isn't until 2010.

I just counted 41 stations in my area that offer ULSD. I also saw several in neighboring states. This fuel is going to more previlant each passing year up to 2010 and the fuel the "classic" operates best on will be harder & harder to get. I also read on this site about the 3500 LMM that was filled with non ulsd for 5500 miles and seemed to run great without it. Maybe I should be, but I'm just not that concerned about driving around looking for ULSD.
