Delivery and paperwork was
flawless Price was right. Sierra was
delivered in perfect physical condition
with only a minor transmission problem
noticed. Problem increased, warranty
looked into the problem. Problem is
claimed by GM as "normal" and not a
problem. Suspension has been cheapened
translating into less comfort and a
harder ride, even with the smooth ride
suspension ordered. If this new truck
rode like my 1990 GMC 1500 I would buy
3 more for my kids but will be hard
pressed to ever buy another one the way
they are being made today.
Stepside styling in black has always
drawn me to Sierras. The factory CD
system sounds clear without door
vibrations from the speakers. The 4.8L
engine rivals the older 350s in
performance. Air conditioning is first
class. Seats are very comfortable. Dash
styling is the best around.
I still own a 1990 1500 with the
original transmission running better at
209,592 miles than the new one in my
2002 model. GM says the clunking and
clanking noises are "normal" with under
3000 miles on my 2002 truck. If this is
considered normal, start selling your
GMC stock right now.
