2003 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

Review

After about one week of driving, the truck began to vibrate excessivly especially on concrete freeways. Took it in 4 times, each time the wheels were way out of balance. They can't figure it out. They think that maybe the tires are moving on the rim. These are Bridgestones on aluminum wheels. It turns out that you may get Bridgestones or Firestones(same ones recalled by Ford) depending on what they have laying around at GM. It is made worse by a poor suspension design that does not perform well at highway speeds. At this point the tires are still out of balance and the dealer doesn't know what to do or what is happening.

Favorite Features

The truck has a pretty good motor and transmission. It shifts and accelerates well.

Suggested Improvements

Improve the suspension design, focus on quality,go with the Michelins.
