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.
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.
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
