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


I previously owned a 2002 F-150 prior to this truck, which was an absolute lemon. Ford did nothing to fix the numerous problems, which led me to switch to GM products again. I can say I am pretty impressed with the truck overall. It has decent power, but lacks a little in the torque department. The body, fit, and finish are excellent. There are no squeaks or rattles. Mileage is about 10% better than the similarly equipped Ford. There are many more amenities in the GMC, including OnStar, and XM radio. I will never buy another vehicle without XM. It is great in remote areas. The truck also runs great, and the transmission shifts smoothly.

Best Features

Good all-around engine, XM radio, auto climate control

Worst Features

MORE TORQUE!!!! Trucks need power down low, and this is the only area where the 5.3 lacks. The Ford 5.4 has a TON more torque down low, which is about the only thing it has going for it.
