Great Truck!

Review

Overall this is a great truck. Even with the heavy duty suspension the ride is very comfortable. Excellent power train so it makes a great truck for hauling. I also like the four doors when I need to haul the whole family but the back doors are a pain to get the kids out of in tight spots. I've had the truck two years and have had no problems with it.

If youre looking for something larger than a S-10 that will pin you in your seat when you want it too then the 5.3 Sierra should be a top choice for the consumer. With the proper trim, you think youre riding in a Escalade

Review

What can I say...bought it in May, 02. In the shop four times by Sept. 1 02. Quality, workmanship, seems like it was just slapped together. GM has been no help.....preparing my lemon paperwork...brakes, cracked exhaust manifold, trans spline sheared off, starter failed, and for some reason the right side headlight has burned out 4 times since I bought it!

flimsy body panels

Review

Be aware of service bulletin # 01-08-66- 014 which addresses sheet metal fracture with accessories such as tool boxes,and ladder racks. My truck has a rack on it which was also on my '99 GMC(which had no problem in 94000 miles).At about 70000 miles the body panels just in front of the tail lights on both side ripped apart and the bed rails collapsed onto the tail lights. Since I am out of warranty(too many miles, not time) that this repair is on my dime - actually $1800. This was my third truck from this dealer and all of them have used the same rack. They told me that when GMC went to the new body style in 2000 they just aren't as strong. BE AWARE!!!

Bought this truck, to have fun driving and fixing it up to scream. So far so good, it screams. Cold air intake, flowmaster, Jet stage 1 and Jet shift. The 5.3 now breaths better. 16mpg in town, 20+on the hwy.[if I keep the pedal off the floor]

Awesome Truck

Review

Truck has exceptional power (5.3). Towing 7000# skid loader a breeze. Fully satisfied with truck. Seating is great with the center console. Just like captain's chairs in a van. The only change I would make is to opt for 4 full doors versus the extended cab.

Professional Grade???

Review

After 2 Fords with over 100000 on each and relatively no trouble, I suddenly have a hole in my 2001 GMC engine block. The GMC hotline has been very vague about service since I am now at 42000 miles and the dealer tries to ignore my calls every time I try to get an answer if this is a factory issue. If this thing ever gets out of the shop I will NEVER own another GMC product!

I have 11,500 miles on this 1-year old truck. I've owned many vehicles in my 25 years of driving, and honestly think this is the best truck on the road. The ride is smooth (better than many cars), the 5.3 liter engine is strong, and the fuel mileage beats the heck out of a Dodge. I've owned Chevy and GMC trucks before, and I agree with many other people who say the re-design of these vehicles put them in a class to be envied.
