1996 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab C1500 SL 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

First, understand that this is a 20 year old truck, free of bells and whistles by today's standards.

Now the good. This truck is solid. This is my second K1500, the first went for 300k miles. These are sturdy! Vortec engines are very well machined, and with routine maintenance, they will run as long as you own your truck. Towing has been great. I have the 305ci 5.0L with the 5 speed manual transmission, and that control of the shifting is exactly what I wanted.

If you need to make repairs, the maintenance is a snap. The engine bay is large, with lots of space; swapping out an alternator, waterpump, plugs etc, are a breeze. The only issue I've had is the AC compressor developed a leak after 20 years. NOT BAD AT ALL!

The price is excellent! For $5000 you can find these in excellent condition, and drive them for years! Best functional work truck for the money, and lots of aftermarket replacement parts available. This is the best variety of pickups GM ever put out.

Review

Had some problems with computer in
beginning. Once it was replaced at
27000 mile no problems since. A/C went
out at about 38000 and had to replace
compressor. No other major problems
with truck. Been a very reliable work
truck.


Best Features

Ext cab, V8 engine. Good tow vehicle.
