2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD SLT 4dr Crew Cab SB (6.0L 8cyl 6A)

Review

This truck is by far the worst riding vehicle i have ever owned. I understand it is a HD, but come on GM, you're not always towing with it 100% of the time. I cannot believe the research and development guys at GM designed it that way. The rear end bounces 60% the time when empty or partially empty. tryed changing shocks and tire pressure adjustment. helped out about 5%. The new 6 speed tranmission in my truck needs work. There is a delay in shifting between 2nd and 3rd gear. This happen 10% to 20% of the time but is annoying.When the delay happens engine racing anywhere from 200 rpm to 1000 before the shift takes place.Tranmission engages harshly when shift happens. Look elsewhere.

Best Features

Exterior body style. Interior appointment

Worst Features

Transmission. Delay in shifting. Interior noise due to shifting of plastic and weatherstripping around doors. Horrible ride when transporting family around town.
