1996 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLE 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I've owned this truck for two years and it is by far the best truck I've ever owned. The interior has plenty of room and the exterior looks sharp. My truck has over 200k and it still runs strong. I love the power of the 350ci V8, especially with a set of flowmaster duals. The limited-slip is another wonderful thing bout this truck. This truck is a performer and a reliable worker.


Best Features

The 350ci V8. Pulls my 14ft trailer with little effort. It also shuts down those annoying little ricer cars.


Worst Features

A firmer shifting tranny, better tailgate design, disk brakes in rear.

1996 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLE 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

Excellent truck. Flaws include: Intake manifold gasket started leaking around 60K, 1 oxygen sensor around 45K, U- joints around 65K, windshield wiper module. All relatively inexpensive items to fix. Front brake pads lasted 80K (all city miles - they will last if you don't drive like a maniac). 16mpg in city, almost 20 mpg on highway (5.0 V8).


Best Features

Easy to work on, parts easy to find.


Worst Features

Only concerning flaw for me is the intake manifold gasket - several mechanics told me this is a common problem. It could cause problems if you let it go.
