2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab Work Truck 4dr Extended Cab 5.8 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Bought this truck used for my 17 year old son. Beautiful fire red . Had 57k miles on it .Got a great deal. Aside from General maintenance have put zero money into this truck. Now has over 90k and he and his band drove from California to Austin and back for South by Southwest averaged 17.5 mpg. With no issues. Still looks new when cleaned / waxed up.

Review

I have had numerous issues with this vehicle from speakers going out (new speakers and radio $600), pressure switch going bad twice ($789 each time), side molding falling off 6-8 times under warranty and now falling off out of warranty (have not fixed), door latches breaking driver and tailgate ($200 for each), catalytic converters needing replaced at 65,000 miles ($1500), and now I have collapsed lifters costing me thousands of dollars. The truck looks good other than it now needs major engine repair. Full synthetic oil changes every 3000-4000 miles, light hauling never beyond capacity, all maintenance kept up and serviced regularly never raced or beat on and I am the original owner. I am very disappointed in this vehicle and will never purchase another GM product again. I should not have issues like this until 200,000 miles or more are showing on that odometer with correct maintenance. I have put way too much money and time into this vehicle, cost of ownership outweighs the worth of this vehicle.

Review

Truck has 34000 miles on it. Main turn signal switch went out, Door lock switch out, Airbag sensor out, Master window switch out ($400) for a switch! Truck now will not engage the starter, so it's in the shop again. Do not buy any GMC or Chevy truck! Going back to Dodge.

Review

I had been searching for a truck for a while and finally settled on this one.
Picked up a used 2008 with 32000 miles and ive had it for over a month and absolutely love it.
It rides sooooo smooth like a caddy and gas mileage is pretty good.
Highway at 65mph is 23mpg.
Toyota can't touch that.
I have the 5.3.
Haven't had it long enough to say how the reliability is, but i know from experience these 'Chevys' are so tough.
I have the HD tow package and rear locking diff and it pulls my 20' Cobia like its not even back there...
Interior is nice and tight.
No rattles, no quirkiness.
No engine rattle or cam bump.
Sounds As if the motor is not even running.
Truck is just pure quality!


Best Features

Power, smoothness, tow capability. Interior quality. Truck is sexy! rear doors swing out all the way.


Worst Features

6 speed trans, but I think they are doings that in the new ones. Otherwise, truck is perfect!
