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).

Favorite Features

Easy to work on, parts easy to find.

Suggested Improvements

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.
