2006 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab SLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this truck used with 50K miles; GMC certified + factory warranty remaining for 10K more miles.
I have had lots of problems out of this truck. In less than 5 months of ownership;
-the center console shorted out
-the rear brakes locked up and burned up the rear-end which had to be replaced (not covered under warranty)
-Lots of vibration in front end- the front end came loose from the truck and had to be re-welded
-Power steering kept cutting off when turning (frayed line attributed to the front end separation)
-Short in heated seats
-Tail gate had to be replaced and now the new one will not open (dealer installed)
-Transmission is now slipping


This truck has only seen pavement

Review

Like others my truck ran flawless for the first 15,000 or so and then the problems began. The rear drum brakes started to squeal every time you applied them, dash rattle, headliner rattle(dealer attempted to fix-rattle is back). Approximately 20k turning the steering wheel produced a weird noise(dealer tried to repair-it's back) 26k new front rotors and pads(my other vehicle has 71k with original pads if your wondering about my driving). 37k new belt tensioner and belts(squealing noise) 39k main engine seal leak(luckily repaired by GM) 41k steering link rattle(replaced link) and now "service brake system" message displayed. Thank you for stealing my $34,000 GM

Review

within the last year since I hd my sierra around 48,000 miles as I began to accelerate after I had been at a light or stop sign I am been getting a knock or a clunk as if the u joint is bad. also when I took it in for service because the engine light at 35000 miles Dealership told me it was rodent damages. This is an excuse after talking to other sierra owners it was just faulty wires that GM put on trucks. I won't buy another, after 3chevy's and a gmc I am going to ford.

Review

It was a Nevada Edition. I picked this over a Ram & 150 because of the comfy seating and nice black dash and overall better exterior design. Pros: solid ride, Auto 4*4, tons of room, nice rims Cons: At 10K a bearing dropped and ruined the engine and was covered by warranty, little noises everywhere inside, window's not closing all the way and creating road noise. The Spec. Edition Stickers kept on falling off numerous times. Too big for city parking and such, (should have got a mid size.) Crappy speakers blow & distort. Don't think it will be good for the long run so i'll give it up for a Dakota i think. Great lease truck though.


Best Features

Intergraded XM radio, Great looks inside and out, Comfy slanted back seating with wide windows. Like a limo. Computerized odometer, looks like a tank...tuff


Worst Features

Better fit and finish, trucks at this price should come with bed covers and trailer hitches. More incentive of their hybrid model.
