high oil consumption ,delay in throttle response and cheaply built parts
By nickb407 on
2007 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
6.0 litre vortex max...i love the looks of it and it really is a hard working truck.
at 2 years of age i was using aprox 1 1/2 quarts of oil between changes. at three to four years old. i couldnt make it a full oil change before getting a low oil light ( about 3 quarts low). no leaks, just burning it.
also its a huge truck with little leg room for me.
and a sometimes very scary delay in throttle response.
when hitting the gas to cross a busy street and it doesnt move for a full second seems like an hour!!
and very cheaply made parts.... a stabilizer link made from plastic!!
my favorite feature was the heated windshield washer fluid till they recalled it and disconnected it.
i will never purchase another gm product,
and ashamed to say but
an american made vehicle again.
use better made parts and fix the oil consumption problem.
$50k should have zero ploblems!!
