I like my GMC very much,it is snappy and has good torque for pulling a medium weight travel trailer. The only complaint I have with this truck is a persistant knock in the engine that is very noticable in the morning starts. My previous truck was a 1976 3/4 ton 4x4 GMC long bed. The ride on the 2000 was my first consideration in buying a new truck. My next step up will be the Duramax.

rear brakes and parking brake leave
something to be desired. Rear rotors
rust decreasing overall braking power
and make the parking brake all but
useless. Good power and excellent
towing vehicle for horse trailer.
Two piece drive shaft failed during
our second towing excursion.
Dealership replaced with a single piece
unit. Now it hums while you drive but
has proven to be reliable.
Unit stuck in 4wd during -20 degree
weather. Again dealership repaired.
Dealership was cooperative in making

This plain, Jane GMC has a 6.0 liter
engine with a 4.10 rear end. Not good
for fuel mileage, usually about 14, but
has ranged from 9 with a trailer in the
wind to 15 on a flat highway. Warranty
work on a jerky transmission, radio
failure, rattle in the steering shaft,
center console latch, and noisy heater
fan. Not much really. Basically
satisfied & hoping for a long run.
Both light- and heavy-duty 2500s sport new torsion bar front suspensions. Light-duty models now offer optional traction control and standard child safety-seat tethers. Heavy-duty Sierras are completely redesigned for 2001 offering two new engines and transmissions, bigger interiors and numerous other improvements aimed at buyers looking for a "professional grade" truck from GM.
