2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab SLE 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

My 2001 is a real pleasure to drive, getting 15mph on highways, always used regular gasoline. It performs well in the snow and I'm sold on Allison transmissions.


Best Features

Shortbed is easy to park. Tow package makes towing -like you weren't!


Worst Features

Two complaints: The release for the emergency brake is too low to reach, and all but the driver's seatbelts lock up if you move forward and you have to open the belt and reconnect it -over and over. (I also wish the rear seat cup holders were deeper.)

2001 GMC Sierra 2500HD Crew Cab 4dr Crew Cab SLT 4WD SB w/OnStar (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Best vehicle I have ever owned. Still smooth and powerful after 150,000 absolutly trouble free miles. Ford and Dodge probably have as good an engine, but no way can they match the Allison/Duramax as a package. I used to trade trucks every year, but I still enjoy this one so much I want to see just how long it will go.


Best Features

The braking system on the Allison is great. Comfort of the SLT leather interior and the ABS is the best I have ever used.


Worst Features

Fuel filter is a little tricky. Seem to have a slight bit of bump steer. Mirrors hold a lot of water that blows down the side after leaving the car wash.

Review

I've never owned a better truck. All
the power you ever want without
sacrificing fuel mileage. Hook it to
anything and go anywhere. Great ride
like a Caddy. No noise. Luxurious


Best Features

The 8.1 L Engine leaves others behind. Allison tranny is smoothe and exact.

Review

This last year has been quite
another story. I've had a complete
Brake job including replacing all four
rotors which were fine 2500 miles
before. The sudden complete failure of
all four brakes cost 1600 dollars for
that. The four wheel drive switch has
gone twice causing the truck to shift
in and out of gears and fall out of
4WD. This also caused premature wear
of the U-joints, which needed
replacing. The fan motor now is going
and needs to be replaced. The engine
burns a quart of oil every 2200 miles
and knocks like mad for the first five
minutes of run time until it's warm.
The engine also knocks if I use any gas
other than premium.

Everything but the body needs work if you expect this truck to last more than two years.

Review

I love my truck. It was bought to work
and it does that. There is a lot of
Maintnaice on this truck though. The
style and beauty of this thing is
awsome. I like the looks of this truck
more than the new ones, but you know
how guys are. We want the latest,
greatest thing.
Im sick of having to replace the main
engine drive belt every 15000 miles. It
starts squiling and I cant handle that.
And it sucks the dealer never has the
parts to fix a damn thing when you take
there. You have to go back and forth
two, three, or sometimes four times
before anything gets fixed. great big
bummer since there is not a dealer
anywhere close to where i live.


Best Features

An automatic transmission that will hold up to the pulling.


Worst Features

better service after the sale. longer service hours.
