21,000 miles (Everything I expected)
By Colorado on
2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Replaced a disaster 6.0 PSD (too many warranty invoices overloaded glove box) and went back to gasser GMC. Truck is fully fitted out and has never been in the shop for any warranty work. Averaging 19.7 mpg city/hwy and consistently get over 20 on the hwy at 75 mph (about what I expected for this heavy truck). Auto 4WD is great in the snow and wet weather, and tow/haul functions as designed. Can cruise all day at 75-80 mph on the interstate--comfortable with smooth ride. Good leg room in the back seat for adults. Reasonably quiet ride with lots of room--tight finish, no rattles or squeaks.
Auto 4WD. Tracks very well in snow and on wet roads with all-season tires. Tow/haul function is great when towing. Like the auto volume control on the radio. Bose stereo with aux connection. Use Bluetooth phone system with great sound clarity--connections have no idea I am on the speaker phone.
A little more low-end torque when entering freeway. Can't figure out why brakes squeal occasionally--even when rotors are clean--but not a big issue. Should have spray-in bed liner and door sill guards on premium SLE's for the price charged (instead of paint).
