2009 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab SLT 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Everything still works as advertised. I wish every decision worked so well.


Best Features

I am getting more than the advertised gas mileage, how often can anyone say that? Well laid out instrument panel and controls make driving that much more comfortable.

2009 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab SLE 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Review

GMC = Government Motors Crap!

WHere do I start, Fuel economy sucks, 2 mps less than rated, been checked out no mechanical reasons, not driver error I drive conservatively.

Vehicles, people and objects disappear behind the review mirror because of the lowered roof line, I cannot clean the windshield because of the sloped design.

Your seats suck, around a 1,000 miles the foam starting softer and I now feel like I am sinking in the seat, very uncomfortable, no left ffo rest, so I am sliding around when braking.

Noisey peace of crap, stop klunks, bumps and thumps, hard downshifts.


Best Features

Less head room, right edge of right foot gets caught on plastic shield next to accelerator. Objects/vehicle disappering behind review mirror when cornering. 2 feet of wasted dash board depth, because sloped windshield. less shoulder room than my 1989 Sierra, cheaper seats crap seat than the 89, less head room, less shoulder. worse fuel economy


Worst Features

read the above after you quit taking stupid pills, [violative content deleted].

Review

Bought this truck 12/30/09 with many incentives, but you are never going to beat a dealer on a negotiation. Got a fair price. Disabled Vietnam Veteran who uses this truck primarily for towing a fishing boat and around the home hauling. Extremely comfortable on my back. I love the Active Fuel Management which is very good at maximizing mileage with cruise. Also love all the bells and whistles bluetooth, onstar, sound system, quiet interior, mp3 etc. Have been very happy with the drivetrain even though the 6 speed auto became available on this model in 2010. Would absolutely recommend this truck to anyone and love buying American and glad GM is doing better.


Best Features

Z71 4X4 very agile on snow and ice. That comes in handy in northern MN. AFM is great for mileage. Onstar, Sirius, Bluetooth and a great sound system. Comfortable, quiet cab make this truck seem more like an SUV than a truck.


Worst Features

I'm unable to come up with anything after 13,000 miles and 18 mos of ownership. Great truck.

Review

i will say that I enjoy driving the truck when it's not at the dealer with issues. has a real nice sound, but the 4 speed transmission makes an alarming jerky upshift at about 30 kph. horribly unreliable. definitely a money pit. the dealer really doesn't care and screws me over by saying they didn't find anything and charge me $70 labor every time. truck's left me stranded more times than necessary. had it in for dead battery every morning and the truck has been in for the cylinder deactivation system not kicking back to 8 cylinders when needed. auto rear locking differential wouldn't unlock. overall, should've done my research and paid a bit more for a Ford.


Best Features

looks nice, black interior, auto 4x4


Worst Features

quality control, get rid of the horrible thumpy drivetrain and make a better extended cab structure. put baffles in the gas tank and redo the seats so they maintain comfort after 5000 miles.
