I love the truck, but there are lots of drivetrain problems. Three recalls ,sqealing parking brake is the worst, two rear differentials, and three comeplete clutches, all in the first four months. Still a good truck all in all.

Review

I purchased my truck 2 1/2 years ago
and have been reasonably impressed.
Not great accleration or mind blowing
power, but a good solid pull. I work
it hard everyday and so far it has
stood the test of time. Had a few
minor problems but overall a good truck


Best Features

Great to ride in.


Worst Features

Needs better stereo system. Could use better acceleration.

Review

Numerous difficulties; right quadrant of
taillights has short that has them turn
on and off intermitently, Spare tire
release under the bed was broken from
the manufacturer. I learned this from
the tire store. His remark was "none of
them work, I do not think yours will
either" he was right! Battery terminal
was broken on this brand new truck.
Right side window does not work at all.
Frozen in the up position. Lights on
dash come on at strange times. Leak in
cab on drivers door in the middle, this
a chevy standard feature.


Best Features

The "tow package' is strictly a transmission low gear that seems to work well. Would you think there might be some wiring for this purpose? No! Trialer hook-up etc.

Review

. started to experience a knock in the
motor. REMEMBER this truck is still
under the 3yr-36,000. mile warranty!
called GMC, they said take it to
another dealer, they said i had a
problem and replaced the lifters. truck
was did not make a sound for 2-3 weeks.
took it back NOW IT IS A COLD ENGINE
KNOCK. and that that is normal. then
GMC sends me a 100,000. mile warranty
that i didn't except. NOW THEY WON"T
FIX THE PROBLEM AND THERE DEALER SAYS "
THEY WILL FIX IT WHEN IT BLOWS UP" ALL
THEY SAY IS IT IS NORMAL TO MAKE THIS
NOISE. I WILL NEVER BUY A GM PRODUCT
AGAIN AND I WILL HOPEFULLY STOP SOMEONE
FROM MAKING THE SAME MISTAKE AS ME"
BUYING A GM PRODUCT"
