I own a 1993 GMC 2 door SLE and it has performed well over the past 12 years. It's dependable and rides good. This is why I bought another GMC. I find the 2003 to be just as well built and dependable. The 5.3 engine is a good combination of power and smoothness I want in a vehicle, and my mileage runs around 17 mpg. Of course this drops significantly if I jump on it , or drive in the 70/80/mph range.
