In January I bought a 2003 GMC Sierra
1500 SLE with the trailering package
and the Z71 off-road package. The
truck is quite as a church mouse on the
inside and runs beautifully. The ride
is firm, like a truck, but not so stiff
that you have to visit your dentist and
have your fillings put back in weekly.
Visability is very good and the inside
is extremely comfortable (including the
back seat). Transmission shift isn't
always smooth as GM silk and there is
some growl from the front end in 4WD...
time will tell if these are normal or
The on-board diagnostics and comuter
are helpful, as is the automatic air
bag on the passenger side
(automatically disabled if the
passenger weighs less than 60 lbs). I
like how the 4 doors open and the lack
of a B-pillar.
Cup holders on the front seat don't
fold out of the way of a center
passenger... that's dumb ! I'm also
keeping my fingers crossed over my 4WD
growl up front...
