Review

I have a 2002 GMC Regular Cab Flareside shortbed 4x4. I bought the truck used with 46,000 miles on it and now have 51,000 and only had one problem. My sound system rattled the screw loose on the overhead consule. I installed the sound system a month after i bought it and it and had to replace the tires which seem to be a common problem with these.I have a hard tonneau cover and it really helps out living in Alaska. If a truck survives here it can survive anywhere.


Best Features

4x4 is really strong and works when you need it most. Heater heats the cab quick which is beyond handy living in Alaska


Worst Features

Would have liked to have bucket seats vs. bench but still a great layout

Review

This truck is awesome. Only had one problem with it and that was the intermediate steering shaft replaced at no charge. The 4.8 had plenty of grunt. Spins the rear tires no problem (even at 1/4 throttle). The 4 wheel drive just goes in the snow no spin at all. It tows like there's nothing there which is awesome. It gets very decent gas mileage too I get about 17 18 city.


Best Features

Just about everything, especially the V8


Worst Features

Level the trucks from the factory

Review

Bought this truck in Feb 2007 with 86,000 miles. At 89k new fuel pump b/c previous owner did not change fuel filter. At 92k intake gaskets leaking bad enough it wouldnt run on a cool summer morning. 93k discovered the reason behind poor braking was that the front rotors where virtually destroying themselves. Terrible case of piston slap when stone cold. Other than these problems I love my truck. It's quick nimble and fun to drive. It is crazy good looking. I drive it extremely hard about 3/4 of the time and it doesnt miss a beat. K&N filter helps power.


Best Features

Awesome looks, tons of jam for a 4.8L, whips incredibly tight donuts. Lots of power above 3800.


Worst Features

Four wheel disk brakes don't stop a reg cab short box as good as they should. Could use better economy. Maybe little more low end grunt in the 4.8L. Cruise should be standard. No more rubber washers on the intake manifold please.

Review

The truck ran and performed fine up to the point to where I had about 8000 miles on it. After that, engine knocks, transmission slips, steering problems, brake problems, gas mileage dropped, tires were wearing funny, brake light electrical problems all surfaced. Maintenance shop was cluless on fixing problems and didn't know how to fix anything. I was accused of 4 wheeling the truck when I have never even had it off road. Then I was told that the steering problems, brake problems, and tire problems were not covered under warranty past 1500 miles. Worst truck I have ever owned and I'll never own another.


Best Features

Body design, interior layout.


Worst Features

Stop making the truck.

Review

Purchased used and in great shape. Runs strong and looks new. Fuel mileage is around 18mpg. This one has the 34 gal tank and a 373 posi rear. Fast acceleration and great braking. Trailering package stiffens the ride but it is a truck after all. Very pleased so far.


Best Features

Nice factory stereo!
