2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD Owner Satisfaction - Consumer Reports
We found this version of the Silverado 2500 to be the best choice of the three heavy-duty trucks available on the market during this period. Payload and towing capacity are impressive, yet braking and handling capabilities come close to matching those of the half-ton version of the truck, a combination of performance attributes its rivals couldn't match.

Overall Owner Satisfaction

Consumer Reports’ Annual Owner Satisfaction Survey can improve the chances of finding a compatible car match. How? Our survey data reveals whether, all things considered, owners would buy the same car again. The answer to that question is what determines our owner-satisfaction rating, which is a powerful piece of intel because it predicts how well a particular model will satisfy other owners.

Driving Experience

What Owners Say

"Great power & handling, towing etc."

Joanne C., FL (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

"Pulls our fifth-wheel trailer beautifully."

Debra V., CA (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

"Without a load this thing has amazing mid range acceleration. With a trailer the diesel and its transmission flatten out hills like they weren't there. It handles like a truck with a heavy weight on the front wheels but is predictable and communicative about what is going on."

Alexander G., GA (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

"29000 miles and the rotors are warped and pulsing. The pads are like new. I thought factory junk but have talked to a number of mechanics and was told that no one makes a quality rotor that doesn't eventually warp. A sad state of affairs for auto industry!!"

Rex M., PA (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

"Good power and very solid ride/handling."

Anonymous, BC (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

Steve E., MT (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

Comfort

Includes seats, climate control, noise, and ride

What Owners Say

"The seats are the most comfortable seats I've experienced out of many vehicles. The ride is great but the noise level could be reduced."

Corrine T., NV (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

"For a long wheel base trailer towing vehicle, this is quite comfortable, actually rides better when loaded. Somewhat loud when accelerating but the diesel is quiet on the highway due to low operating rpms."

Alexander G., GA (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

"No major problems, I'm overall very satisfied with the vehicle"

Joanne C., FL (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

"very conferrable seats great for long distances"

Value

Did you get what you wanted relative to the price you paid?

What Owners Say

"I use it two ways. One is to pick up rather heavy pallets of donated pet food for a local shelter. The other is to carry a slide in camper unit for vacations. Does both very well. Of course some local around town errands and transport of assorted lesser stuff."

Addison A., FL (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

"This is a work truck, and it has worked flawlessly for hauling hay and horses."

Steve E., MT (2011 Chevrolet Silverado 2500HD)

Percentage of owners who would definitely purchase that same vehicle again. Owner-satisfaction Ratings are determined by the percentage of those who answered "definitely yes" to the question asked by the Consumer Reports Annual Auto Survey "Considering all factors (price, performance, reliability, comfort, enjoyment, etc.), would you get this car if you had to do it all over again?". If we don’t have sufficient data, a similar model might be used to form the owner-satisfaction score.
