'09 SIERRA GREAT TRUCK / VALUE
By SHAFE-2 on
2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I replaced a full sized car and older “weekender” work p/u truck with this 1 vehicle. My daily highway commute is a joy. I had delayed this purchase for 2 years. Rebates, program discount and cash4clunkers made this too good to ignore. I am so glad I purchased this truck as it has more than exceeded my expectations. Solid, comfortable ride. Dual pwr buckets, large console, 60/40 rear flipup seats, give this cabin tons of room for extras and very spacious. 3 to 4 people are comfortable on short trips. I enjoy the trailering package, backup sensor, full open rear doors, large trailering mirrors. Dealer replaced a deformed drivers door molding, but still experience excessive wind noise
Roomy, comfortable interior. This GMC / style is the nicest looking truck on the road. Dash and interior features are nicely done. The finishes on the doors, console, dash and leather wrapped steering wheel are pleasant visually and to touch. 5.3ltr V8 is powerful, quiet with the 4sp auto trans
36 gal gas tank & at ¾ full, it produces quite a rocking thud when you come to a stop. A baffle would help eliminate this. Overhead console should have sunglass / small compartment. Wasted space. Would like to see a drive mode icon (2WD,AWD,4WD) on instr cluster. Wipers & sun visors are inadequate.
