Vehicle: 1997 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SL 2dr Extended Cab SB

In the 3 years that I've owned this truck, I've had to do brakes once and one tune up (plugs, wires & a cap), nothing else. My truck has teh 4.3L V6, and a 5sp manual tranny. No word of a lie: in the summer I get 20 miles to the gallon, and the rest of the year she gets about 19 to 19.5miles to the gallon. It is a 2 wheel drive truck, so (living in New Hampshire) I've been forced to get a set of tire chains so that I can crawl out of almost anything, and it works.

What's New for 1997

A passenger airbag is added to models with a GVWR under 8,600 pounds, and all models get speed-sensitive steering that reduces low-speed effort. K1500 models have a tighter turning radius for better maneuverability. Automatic transmissions are refined to provide smoother shifts and improved efficiency. Three new paint colors debut.
