2001 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab SLE 2WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Be aware that when you get your GMC, on the freeway or expressway that you will feel "freeway hop". This is a problem that GMC knows about but will do nothing to fix. Because most people will not test-drive a new vehicle on a freeway, this is a problem that will not show up until that first time you drive your new truck on the freeway, and think the alinement is out, and take it back to the dealer, only to be told that GM is aware of the problem, and put a lot of weight in the rear of the bed. Contacting the 1-800 number did not produce any results either. Hope this helps at this one other person before they buy.


Suggested Improvements

GMC needs to listen to their customers.

Review

We just purchased this truck. It is a very nice and comfortable vehicle to have. We have averaged around 18 to 20 miles to the tank this has been in city so far. It is a quiet ride also. We use to have a ford ext. cab with a 1 ton chassie 4x4 (diesel)and the only thing i can tell that is different is you can feel the small bumps on the road more. Thats only because we were used to a heavier truck. I would highly recommend this truck as of today


Favorite Features

Interior,body design and smooth ride. Mileage

I have had no problems at all with this truck. It can haul, cruise, or simply get around town with no problems.

Rock solid truck.

Review

Absolutely almost 3 years trouble free use, everything from pleasure driving (500 mile trips) to hauling hay or livestock. Never a wimper, never a miss. Pull a 4,000 pound tractor plus implements and trailer and you never know you have anything in tow using the tow mode. Will surely buy another.


Suggested Improvements

The seats could use a little extra something. 200+ pounds quickly wears a seat hole, but this is the same Ford, GMC or Dodge. Shame we have to go and buy conversion seats to keep the machine comfortable aafter 20,000+ miles

Review

Bought my Sierra new and still enjoy driving it. Only had a few warranty items to take care of in the first year (rear seatbelt retractor, clunking sound from front wheels when going over bumps & front wheel alignment problem). Other than that, have just had it in to the dealer for regular maintenance. It handles great on curves & turns and has plenty of power. However, it does drink lots of gas. I average about 13.5 mpg in the city & around 16 mpg on the highway. The factory tires were terrible (Firestone Wilderness AT) and I only got about 36,000 miles out of them. Have replaced them with Michelin LTX M/S and they have been great in giving the truck a much smoother ride.


Favorite Features

Like the good looks, flip-up rear seat & power of the engine. Tow/haul button is great when trailering. Like the auto-diming rear view mirror w/comp. & temp. The Auto 4 whl drv button is a nice feature too.


Suggested Improvements

For the price I paid, I expected better interior materials other than the cheap plastic. Gas mileage could be improved. Would be nice if the side view mirrors were auto-diming.
