Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 2500 4dr Crew Cab SLE Rwd SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

This vehicle became a nightmare after about 10,000 miles. First the steering shaft failed ... ? That's right, the steering shaft! Next the instrument cluster had to be replaced since the low oil pressure warning kept chiming. It still chimes uncontrollably after replacing the oil pressure sending unit three times, the oil and filter five times (when it didn't need it), and get this ... they changed the oil pump and the thing still chimes at will! The truck rides like a tank. Now the steering gear box needs to be replaced. There are less than 85,000 miles on this pig!




Worst truck i'e ever owned

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 2500 4dr Crew Cab SLE Rwd SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

Truly a masterpiece of "poor" engineering. 2004 sierra 2500 with a duramax diesel and Alison transmission. Had to replace the intermediate steering shaft the first year. The vehicle constantly looses prime and shuts down. Here's the kicker . The oil pressure gauge flutters and the annoying chime rings constantly indicating low oil pressure. The cluster panel has been changed twice, the oil pressure sending unit has been changed three times. They even changed the oil pump? Still, no fix. This truck has been a nightmare from day one!

Vehicle: 2004 GMC Sierra 2500 4dr Crew Cab SLT 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)

I enjoy driving this truck! So far it stranded me once (due to a clip of some sort coming loose and the computer not knowing enough to send fuel to the engine) and that was at about 7k miles. OnStar answered quickly and got me a tow truck pronto! The dealer easily found the problem and my cost for all this was $0. The Bose system is very enjoyable. Acceleration and power are there when you need them. My 13MPG is lower than I expected, unfortunately.
