This truck has been used mostly on the highway, carries dirt/mulch and recreational toys. And has done so for 62,000 miles without a single mechanical problem! It was originally purchased for towing a camper. Within 6 months of purchase, rising gas prices made driving this thirsty vehicle downright painful! With the cruise control set at 65 station to station on an interstate,13.7mpg. Disappointments? The ventialtion system. The AC is not cold nor dry enough to defog windows. And the radio is horrible! Did I mention fuel efficiency?

The experience of getting better gas
milage with the 6.0 motor in the GMC as
opposed to the 4.8 in my Chev, makes me
wish I had bought the Chev with the 6.o
instead of the 4.8. Factor in the
added pulling power, makes it far
better. I highly reccomend getting the
6.0 in either model truck.

I am pleased with my purchase at this
time. It tows as is expected for a
truck with its power- it is capable in
the woods and farm as well as on the
highway-- though the fuel economy is a
jolt. But then again it is alot of
weight to move.

During the first 3 months my truck was
in the shop 6 times. Radio would not
return CD, without it for 3 days. Once
for extending camper mirrors, passenger
side motor bad. Once for A/C, recall
part not replaced prior to purchase.
Three times for 4 WD, computer chip
keeps going out and shifting into 4WD
low on its own regardless of speed.
I'll go back to the Ford F-250 with the
V-10. More power, better gas mileage
