1993 GMC Sierra 1500 K1500 SLE 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Assembled in Canada. Very few
mechanical problems. Alternator and
wiper motor replaced. Intake manifold
gasket replaced at 102,000 - common on
350ci. Easy to find parts. Has 110,000
miles & at Hwy speeds over 70mph,
average 16mpg+ w/K&N Air Filter.
Stationed in Germany, routinely pegged
speedo on autobahn. Top speed? Has a
rev-limiter, it would cut out. Plenty
of power & brakes on Alpine roads.
Pulled many heavy loads w/o problems.
The 4x4 is must off-road & in
Minnesota winters. No body rust
despite road salt. Paint still good.
Did not have Dealer undercoating -
galvanized steel body.
On 3rd muffler. Overall, very
satisfied with this truck.

Best Features

Accessible engine compartment. Engine hood light that is deployable - handy. A/C has never needed recharging. Has old R-12 coolant - much colder than the new R-134 stuff. It ALWAYS starts, even in -40 degrees below zero (engine block heater helps).

Worst Features

Design of power window/lock buttons - corrected in newer models. No airbag - that came out in 1994 model year. I like "3rd/4th door" they came out with on the ext cabs. Next time I'll skip plastic factory bedliner & try a spray-on.
