2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab SLE1 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

After driving my 1993 GMC extended cab for 15 years I decided to go shopping I found a deep crimson metallic gmc crew cab 4 wheel drive I kept going back and looking for about 3 months then I took it for a test drive and I had to have it I think this is a beautiful tough truck I can dress like a lady and go out on the town or I can get nasty dirty and and load it up with what ever and it never fails me I love the security of onstar and the enjoyment of xm radio.I get alot of compliments on how pretty my truck is my friends at work have named her Miss Pretty


Favorite Features

my favorite features are the radio and knowing what ever happens I have onstar at a touch


Suggested Improvements

I have cloth seats and they collect every bit of lint tat comes their way after I vacum I have to use a lint roller to get the lint. GM should go back to the nice seats they have in my husbands 2004 GMC

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab SLE1 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Immediately drove 2 WD truck (17" tires) to central OH from central FL - 20.2 mpg @ cruise set mostly 75 mph. Returned to FL w/bass boat in tow 15-17 mpg. Ride is super w/effortless handling. Plenty of power with 5.3 engine. I wanted a truck with car type ride. That's why I got 2 WD with 17" rims.


Favorite Features

Front end styling versus Chev, gas mileage, handling, ride, low noise at speed. Just plain comfortable.


Suggested Improvements

Cloth seat bolsters/sides seem to attrack fuzz from clothing. Almost need clothing lint brush for seats. flat seat surface made of different material & OK. In tow mode at slow speed transmission seems to take forever to shift into 2nd. Need back seat heat/AC duct and ice cooler in floor like Dodge

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab SL 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This truck replaced my 2001 GMC Sierra 4wd with the 5.3 motor. The throttle response on the 4.8 motor is pathetic. The traction control is overly sensitive, and the truck jumps out of passing gear too soon. The truck is comfortable, quiet, and handles well. The brakes are a major improvement over my previous 2001 Sierra. I love the lighter weight of the tail-gate.


Favorite Features

Comfortable ride.


Suggested Improvements

A more responsive throttle. GM needs to go back to a throttle cable. The brake pedal is too high in relation to the gas pedal.
