Great vehicle with great leg room in 3rd seat. The 4wd sometimes comes on with the switch in 2wd and they have replaced the switch once already. Has been very dependable with adequate power, nice luxury, and good handling. I will definately look to buy another GMC before anything else, including imports.
3rd seat and extra cargo room with seat down.
Wish the seats would fold flat to the floor. The plastic trim to the rear hatch will have to be replaced a second time.
We purchased this vehicle in Aug of 2002. Mostly for the 3rd seat. Has been in shop countless times in 4.5 years, all kinds of electronic failures, connecting link replacements front and rear new AC compressor, window motors 4WD lights doing what ever it wants. The dual memory feature has been a joke! The passenger mirror is in a new position everytime you turn the key! The dealership as normal is less than helpful. Will definitely trade for a European or Asian AWD vehicle and never look back. Nice Job GM, you lost another one!!
Room vs. overall size. Heated seats.
Learn a lesson from the offshore automakers...quality, quality, quality!! It's not enough to jam every known feature and gizmo into a vehicle, they have to work for more than a year or so.
All the reviews you've read about reliability problems ARE TRUE. Thank God I bought the extended warranty. The dealerships have absolutely no committment to the product and service is horrible. Sadly, this seems to be the trend with all American made cars. I will never buy GM or Chrysler again (300M was a bigger nightmare) and I haven't been brave enough to venture Ford. Toyota (Lexus) or Honda (Acura) will be my next vehicles for a long time to come.
My family got this truck about three years ago and for the first year and a half the truck was wonderful with no problems. Soon after that, we started having many problems. The brake lights go out all the time because of the wires or something. That problem was on going for about a year, I know they recalled it. Know problems under the hood are starting to surface and the things that are not working are very expensive. The car overall is good for that first year but after that it might be a good idea to trade it in, but is a great vehicle other than the problems. Overall this is not a truck you would buy if you were planning to keep it and then give it to your kids. I was expecting to at least get five years out of it.
The outside of the truck is great. I love the look, and it turns a lot of heads, especially when it's clean and shining.
A lot of the truck's amenities are cheap. The radio is not that great. The gas guage often goes down and then goes up at times, so you may have gas but the guage will have it at less than you really do.
