by N.E. TM RPR on Mar 5, 2002 Vehicle: 2001 GMC Sierra 3500
Bought this truck end of July. Installed Una-Goose ball hitch in bed and drive it every day. I have 29,000 plus miles and have no reason to take it to dealer yet. I do all my own general service. I have towed loads as heavy as 16,000 without any problems. Trans handles all loads with ease with the grade braking. Only problem is keeping speed down,lots of power and I find myself going too fast.
After undergoing a full redesign last year, the Sierra 3500 gets only minor changes for 2002. Air conditioning is now standard on all trim levels, and a Cold Weather package is now available that includes heated exterior mirrors and a rear window defogger.
