There still trying to recover from the 6.2/6.5TD mistakes. . .

I owned 3 6.2s. All of them lasted 300k+ and got 22mpg plus. Just because you had problems doesn't mean they are bad. The 6.5 issues could have easily been rectified but GM chose to ignore it. Atleast the blocks didn't fail like the late 80s 7.3s . You should really get you history straight. The 6.2 is not what gave GM a bad rap for diesel tech, it was the 5.7 handgrenade. The 6.2 was a good engine but after the mess with the 5.7s alot of people were turned off to them. Most 6.5s that ar taken care of last close to 300K. I have 2 both with 171k.
