2007 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
The new body style GMC Sierra with a 5.3 liter V8 has some oil consumption issues. My truck purchased new with only 30 miles on it, now with 26,000 miles on it and 3 years later, burns 1 quart of oil between oil changes. I suspect that the all aluminum block design probably has some oil ring clearance problems since I do not have any external leaks yet. Although there is no blue smoke coming out that can be seen, does'nt mean that it is not being burned. GM should do better here for a $46,000 truck. I am sure that the Suburbans and Tahoe owners are experiencing these same issues with the oil and 5.3 liter V8. I won't be buying GM again. Switching back to Ford.
Luxury of the SLT full package with remote start, DVD, etc.
Make an engine that doesn't burn oil when NEW! Also for god's sake, if you call the Homelink garage door opener "universal", then make sure it will open all garage doors that will not require the owner to buy additional parts to use the damn thing. $46,000 remember!
