    Does anyone else think the 2003 is ugly?

    Also, have heard lots of negative feedback about the new Duramax diesel coupled with the Alison tranny. Are these rumors substantiated, or just that, rumors?

    I do think the new front end is a little ugly, but i think it looks better than the Avalanche. jmho.

    I have 2001 2500HD EXT Duramax/Allison and have no complaints. Seems to be a pretty good combination.

    I've got an '02 and I like it... The negatives I've heard seem to be concentrated on the '01's, and I know they worked a lot of bugs out after that. Problems with 02's and now '03's seem to be very anecdotal, similar to what you would find with any other vehicle. '01 tranny's had some issues with a switch that was subject to moisture failure, (probably responsible for the majority of the "my tranny failed!" horror stories)

    I'm not so fond of the new style, but I was pleasantly relieved because I had been told "The new ones are gonna have a front end just liek the Avalanche" and I do NOT dig the front of the Av's. The headlights look a bit angry, maybe a bit too stylized, IMO.

    I HATE the new color blue. I was going to buy an '03 in blue for myself next year... now i have to rethink that decision. I'm not a fan of the head lights either. Now I really have to rethink it. A little off topic I know.

    Wouldnt you know my truck is now payed off, just in time for the 2003 trucks to be released. I went to my dealer and said I was ready to sign paperwork if he could get me a 02, but he couldnt.
    I will just get a GMC, the front end treatment is alot better.
