1997 GMC Sierra 1500 C1500 SLT 2dr Extended Cab LB


I purchased this vehicle new in 1997 and have driven it ever since. It has reliably hauled loads whenever I needed it. It has been inexpensive to maintain and comfortable to drive. After 10 years the paint is still sharp and the sound system good. I suppose I could wish for better gas mileage (16 city, 21 hwy) but I don't know any other V8 truck that would do any better.

Best Features

Extended cab. Sound system. Full size bed. Nice center console.

Worst Features

Overhead kleenex holder accepts a size of kleenex box that was only available for a couple of years after I bought it. It would be nice to keep the size of kleenex boxes standard so I could still buy them. Man, I really had to think hard to even come up with something this minor.
