2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Crew Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I have been driving this truck for almost 2 years, so I know all of its little nuances. Unfortunately, I am not impressed. I have had many GM vehicles and this has been one of the worst. Warranty issues include: new radiator, new brake rotors, power seat motor, tranny problems, etc. I can only attribute this stuff to the fact that GM is rabidly seeking the cheapest suppliers on the globe, which has to hurt quality. I must admit that I use my truck heavily, but what good is a pickup truck that can't handle a little beating? Considering the msrp on this thing was around $39000, GMC must do better with its 2007 model. If not, Tundra and Titan will have Sierra for lunch!


Best Features

Good suspension and 4wd


Worst Features

Overall build and materials quality is not up to industry standards.

2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLT Rwd SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Intermediate steering shaft made noises, steering rack had to be replaced. A/C will not work on inside air setting. Other than this, the vehicle is pretty good.


Best Features

OnStar. Computer that tells you miles per gallon.


Worst Features

Make the items I noted in the review not need repairs so soon. I have spoken to others with the same truck and they have the same problems.

2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Crew Cab SLT 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Very comfortable truck. I'm a sales manager and I drive over 45k miles a year. Seats are great, good gas mileage for a fullsize V 8 truck. I recently made a trip from Atlanta to Houston pulling a small trailer with a 4 wheeler in it, did not meet my expectations for pulling, keeps downshifting.


Best Features

XM radio, Bose, comfort of seats.


Worst Features

Does not pull very well.

2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLT Rwd SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is as comfortable as any car I have owned. It has decent gas mileage and enough power for most needs (5.3L).


Best Features

Back & seat warmer. Great for the winter or a sore back.


Worst Features

The only problem is the turning radius. Could be a lot tighter than it is. Need to be competitive with Ford & Dodge on this.
