2000 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 3dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

This truck is comfortable and has adequate power however, the quality of some components leave a lot to be desired. When having the front brakes replaced I was told that the rear (emergency) brakes need to be replaced as they were metal on metal. I had not used the emergency brakes more than 2 or 3 times since I purchased the truck. The rear brakes had apparently locked in a semi-on position and ate thru the pads. The dealer told me that the factory had redesigned the mechanism on newer models. Obviously this was a design problem. The fuel gauge has gone erratic twice with a repair cost of $900 each time. They recommend a new wiring harness at the same time, another design problem.

Seats, interior

Worst Features

Fix fuel gauge and brake design problems. Redesign shroud around tail gate release. It can't be removed to fix the interior rod w/o breaking the tabs. $25 for a new one.
