1997 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLE 2dr Extended Cab LB


this is my third gm truck and i have yet to be disappointed. first truck was an 87 chevy that i drove until i hit a deer and ditch and the frame warped. second finally gave in when the truck was loaned to a friend (at the time) and they blew the engine.... (friends dont beat friends' vehicles...) this 97 gmc has 220k on it and still running great yeah some maintenance is required but that comes with all vehicles. who needs a jap vehicle. id like to see how many honda's can pull a stump out of the ground then go on a comfortable 3 hour trip back home

Best Features

good engines and body styling. reliable when maintained properly.

Worst Features

transmissions are sketchy in these vehicles but other than that i really cant complain im at a total of 428k miles and ive only had to replace one transmission a lot of oil and quite a few tires. this spread between 3 vehicles mind you.
