2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab SLE1 2dr Regular Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Tail lights were replaced after filling with condensation, blinkers get a mind of there own, "when I turn the blinker on the light flashes on dash but no clicking sound from the relay no the blinker even works on the outside. Last night partially the lights on the dash "half" of them when off and on twice and came back on. As I was driving in a snow storm I noticed something flashing from the front of the truck. Haven't found what it might be because when it stopped the truck and did a walk around it to see if all the lights were working they were and got back into the truck and when I got home turning into my drive there was the flash again. If its happening when I take it in then what?


Best Features

i like the front end look. i like having 4x4. ilike the clearance from the road and i also like xm,onstar,and the built in phone. the blower for the heating and ac? now that is awesome. rides better than my 67 gto to.


Worst Features

The dealer called it rail dust needed repaint. The dealer said they couldn't find anything wrong with the turn signals, and if the dash lights aren't flashing on and off when I take it in this time? well I guess there's nothing wrong there either. Fix my truck please seems to be electrical.

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Have owned truck for almost 600 miles and really enjoy the truck. It has 5.3 V8 with the Flex Fuel Management. City driving is ok, highway is a lot better. For a base model, it came fully loaded with all power options, CD, cruise, fog lights, chrome bumpers, towing package, XM, and OnStar (which I think XM and OnStar were standard). Truck can ride rough over unkept streets, but still a lot better than my old Chevrolet Tracker. Air and heat are great. Can't wait to try the 4x4!


Best Features

XM and OnStar. As weird as this sounds, truck has vinyl flooring which I love! Lot easier to clean than carpet. Also love that Candy Apple Red color!


Worst Features

Give the base model the options of the electronic 4x4 and a sliding back window. It's hard to find a sliding back window these days.

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab SLE1 2dr Regular Cab 8 ft. LB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This truck replaced a V6 GMC I had for 17yrs. The power of the V8 is wonderful for a 4.8L and half the price of the 5.3L The truck handles great. It sits higher than my old truck so is a little harder to get into (I'm 6ft) so I installed nerf bars. Everything about the truck is high quality. Lots of cab storage, cup holders. The stereo is quite good for factory installed.


Best Features

I love the styling. I got the chrome package and Steel Gray Metallic. The seats are very comfortable. Vynl floor covering. Overall I love this truck. At $17,000 the price was great too.


Worst Features

Needs a dead pedal for left foot, easier access to behind seat storage, more tie dow brackets in bed closer to top rails.

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Regular Cab Work Truck 2dr Regular Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

This 1500 Work is great. Gas economy exceeds sticker rating. Light touch on steering, nicely tuned exhaust for a 4.3L. Standard sound system inc XM is v good. Of all my pickups this one is solid, smooth and a "keeper". Fogs nice touch but not necessary. Ergonomics good.


Best Features

Sound system, standard tilt. Paint job sleek, doors solid.


Worst Features

Gear differently to increase mileage. Extravagent tailgate cap not required. use shorter external antenna as this is a "garage door header banger".
