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


Review

The quality of this truck is questionable. Major issues include getting only 275 - 300 miles/tank of gas. Serious steering problems with absolutely no long-term fixes. This is a widespread issue which truly makes the truck a misery to drive! Rust at less than two years. Faulty air, seating, and other minor repairs. I can hardly imagine buying another due to GM's lack of being able to warrany their trucks and offering a fix on such a major steering issue. All they offer is a lube which needs to be applied every four to six months and does not really work well.


Best Features

Heated seats, good power, OnStar.


Worst Features

Steering! So bad, I will have to get out of the truck. Overall quality of the truck needs improvement. Improve rear seat room.

Review

this is the fifth (sixth if you count my Tahoe) gm truck that i have had and it is by far the best. talk about reliable. a heavy duty truck that has no problems pullikng my triler in any clime and place. in the snow, on the beach, it does not matter. talk about space, i have two kids and a dog and we travel with no problems, even on long trips. i will never own another type of truck, from any dealer...now a hummer...that is a different issue. ron tootle major, us marine corps camp lejeune nc gm truck owner since 1985 1985 chevy s-10 1988 chevy s-10 2001 chevy silerado ext cab z-71 2002 gmc sierra ext cab z-71 2002 chevy tahoe 4x4 2004 gmc sierra 2500hd quad cab 4x4

Review

This truck is awesome. We pull a 5th wheel camper and it pulls it like there is nothing there at all. Great truck.


Best Features

Driver 1 vs Dirver 2 memory


Worst Features

Bigger tires. Work on fuel mileage. Getting approx 16 now and am expecting to improve, but would be nice if it could be better.

2004 GMC Sierra 2500HD 4dr Crew Cab SLE 4WD SB (6.0L 8cyl 4A)


Review

Absolutely the best truck I have ever owned. During it's maiden break-in run I got 23.8 mpg. When engine is broken in mileage should be even better. I drive between 55-65 mph and this seems to be the "sweet spot" for performance. Got it to haul our slide in camper and this will be no problem now. (Not like our 91 Silverado which on it's best day with only one person got 20 mpg)


Best Features

Roomy cab, comfortable seats, fine instrumentation. AWESOME diesel engine! Terrific mileage for a vehicle of this size and power. Lots of amenities.


Worst Features

Would be nice to have more switched power outlets under the dash for accessories. (Have tested with power meter and only found one). Watch out on washboard roads - vehicle suspension will let you know immediately that it is a 3/4 ton. Only complaint - pricey!!!

Review

I appreciate the diverse choices when purchasing vehicles but choose to pick GM d/t the ability to find anything from fast sports cars, Corvette, to tough Durmax Diesel. The current Vehicle of choice is as described above and I wouldnt tow w/out the performance of the GMC Sierra 2500 HD Durmax Diesel. Not only does the beautifully engineered design look great driving down the highway but also performs outstanding w/absolutely no problems. This is my 3rd Duramax and would recommend it to any serious driver that needs a truck w/towing capacity. Not to mention gas milege...what truck of this capacity can get


Best Features

Tough Duramax diesel. Great gas mileage. Good design both inside and out. Options are endless
