Review of the 2004 GMC Sierra 1500

  • Powerful drivetrains, classic exterior styling and unique options make the Sierra a pickup worth considering, but Fordís new F-150 has it beat when it comes to interior design and overall refinement.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Roomy extended- and crew cab models, strong V8 engines, innovative features.

  • Cons

    Spotty fit and finish, low-grade interior materials.

  • What's New for 2004

    The big news for 2004 is the addition of an all-new light-duty 1500 Crew cab model with a five-and-a-half-foot bed that replaces last year's 1500HD model. The Work truck package is now available on all Sierras, while base models get standard cruise control along with a chrome grille, wheels and bumper. Other changes include newly designed 17-inch wheels on 4WD models, the deletion of the Professional package and a Quadrasteer package that is now available without additional trailering equipment.

Cracked cylinder heads

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

At about 53,900 miles, my 2004 5.3L developed a ticking noise. Turned out to be cracked cylinder heads. $3800 repair bill. I had it repaired and traded it for a brand new Tundra with 5.7L engine. No regrets.

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE Rwd SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)

This will be my last GMC vehicle. 2004 GMC Sierra with 60,000 miles developed 2 cracked cylinder heads and also need lifters replaced. $3600 repair bill. Called GMC to complain but they didn't care.




Great truck

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

I drove this truck across the country, no problems and i had a trailer in pull. Maine to Washington. Very comfy and with a few add ons, the gas mileage for me is low 20's high way. 5.3L. Good truck, Recommend.




Ok so far

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Bought used 117,000. Used a little oil and coolant would need irregular replenishing, odd. Every now and then a sticky lifter, then when I added Lucas to the oil all H--l broke loose, literally. Next oil change there was so much sludge in the sump the oil would not drained. Long story short, the sludge clogged the oil pump suction and w/o oil pressure things were not going to get any better. Found a used motor (100,000) miles, swapped out. Better engine, more power, no oil consumption, coolant OK. I'll probably drive this truck for another couple of years. I like it. I think the sludge was related to the coolant loss. As it was infiltrating the crank case and slowly evaporating out?




Best vehicle i've ever owned!

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab Work Truck Rwd LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

Absolutely, without a doubt the best truck I will ever own! 168,000 highway miles. Just replaced the original brakes at 167,000. Regular maintenance, oil changes, fluids, etc every 3 to 5K. No bells and whistles, this is a work truck, a darned good one! I get about 19-20 mpg on highway, I'll take it and not look back. Forget interior/exterior design...who cares? I wanted dependability. I got it. A great truck!




Love my gmc

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE Rwd LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)

I purchased my Sierra new, now have 49000 miles. Have had a couple problems but the dealer took prompt, and courtious care of my truck. Fun to drive, looks great gas mileage isn't bad either. I keep the oil changed, and just installed a K&N air filter and will see if my MPG improves. Overall I would buy another one.
