Talking Stopped by a man in a parking lot

Hey guys, thought I would share a little story. The other day while I was driving thru a parking lot a man waved me down and asked how I liked my Duramax. I was happy to tell him all about my truck. He said that he has an '01 gasser that he pulls his 5er with and was looking to replace it with a duramax, but wasn't sure what year he wanted. He asked me to tell him something bad about the Duramax. It was a challenge to come up with anything to tell him. I know the LB7 have their issues, but other than that, I could think of nothing.

It almost broke my heart the other day when i met another duramax guy in the autozone parking lot. He had just bought his lb7 about a month ago and it started stumbling and smoking more here recently.. Knew nothing about the injector issues, made me sad to tell him lol.
