Bought 3 months ago; now have +10K mi's. Love it. Been 30yr Ford guy. 1st GM truck ever considered. Bought the wife an 08 HHR liked it & got me to consider a GM again. Traded my 03 F2504dr 4x4 diesel (loved it) had +180k mi's;still miss the big 600#ft torq. Dealer offered me a 2-day GMC test drive! Hated the "luxury" dash; reminded me of dad's old gran marque, yuk. Wanted more lux but that dash was a deal-brkr. Added SLE pref + NFL pkg & leather/sunroof. Passengers can't but I can notice fr V4 to V8 pwr surge. No tailgate lock!? Will buy one. Has 3.42 rr gear; hard accel into 2nd gear causes rpm's to fall out of pwr-band then comes up. Ctr of hood vibrates continually while driving.

Left fingers accidently "set" cruise ctl. Avg MPG counter too optimistic by 1 mpg. Jouncy ride compared to my F250 4dr 4wd diesel. Needs coin holder & sun visors long enuf to cover side windows. Spray in liner. Bought Undercvr tonneau- nice! Dr's interior door locaton latch non-intuitive 1st 2 months
