2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab SLE2 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

This is my second GMC. I recently traded up from a 2006. Good ride and handling, Like the appearance, gets the same mileage as my 06, averages 18 mpg. I have cloth interior, I liked the old cloth material better. Radio controls are hard to reach. I like the new dual zone controls. The backup sensor is a joke, some of the gauges are blocked by the steering wheel, I really like the new head lights the low beams stay on with the high Beam. Fog lights are cheap. the interior quality is better than my 06


Favorite Features

Price, folding rear seat, headlights, new body style, and interior storage


Suggested Improvements

Turn indicator and auto diming side mirrors STD on future models this is agreat safety feature in city driving, better coth material everything clings to it, larger visor

Review

I love everything about this truck, except for the upholstery. The charcoal colored cloth picks up lint, dog hair, everything and it's quite visible. But what's worse, the nap on the upholstery is starting to flake off with only 14K miles! Quite honestly, if I had realized what a tremendous vehicle this was in every other way, I would have gone with the SLT or Denali trim, had leather and not have the upholstery issue. This is a keeper -- guess I will be looking for an upholstery shop.


Favorite Features

Roominess, decent fuel economy, maintenance tire pressure monitored thru e-mail


Suggested Improvements

Drop the microfiber upholstery and go back to what GM has used for years!

Review

This is easily the best vehicle I've ever owned. I'm 6'7" and am super comfortable. This truck has been flawless - I look forward to many years of reliable service. And the gas mileage isn't bad. It depends a lot on how you drive and how fast you drive. I'm getting almost 19mpg around town. Very satisfied.


Favorite Features

XM, OnStar, active fuel management


Suggested Improvements

Spray in bed liner.

Review

Have not had a truck in a while and I love this one. Great deal, excellent fit & finish and actually drives & rides better than a Volvo sedan I traded.


Favorite Features

Love the styling, even better than the Chevy. Excellent power. Comfortable interior.


Suggested Improvements

Can find nothing I would change right now.
