1997 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLT 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB


I bought this truck with 165,000kms on it. Very well maintained and in perfect shape. I have driven it a total of 10,000kms to date. It's the 4.3L V6 motor which gets anywhere from 15-21 mpg in the city, I have no idea why it fluctuates so much but the drop came with the cold weather. The truck is dependable but performance is weak (definitely suggest the v8 models). The A/C condenser has a leak now it does not work. The transmission sometimes makes hard shifts. The rear shocks are clunky now and will need to be replaced. Otherwise regular maintenance seems to keep this truck running well. Couldn't ask for more from a truck.

Best Features

Body styling (old truck like). Power steering (effortless!). Simple to repair & cheap parts

Worst Features

Better seats. Better dashboard (very boring to look at)
