2001 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab SLT 2WD SB w/OnStar (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

I bought this truck used from a local
dealership. This is my first full
sized pickup, and it has been the best
vehicle I have ever owned.


Best Features

It has a powerful 327 under the hood. I bought the truck to pull my boat. It has absolutely no problem in this category. It is spacous inside, and I will likely buy another one of these trucks in the future.


Worst Features

I would like to see a shoulder harnass seatbelt in the middle of the back seat.

Review

This is a great all around truck. It's
comfortable and makes a good daily
driver, while rugged enough to do the
odd jobs such as hauling lumber, dirt,
gravel, and the family.

One of the things that impressed me the
most is the ride comfort, while still be
able to haul a big load.


Best Features

Trailer hitch integrated into rear bumper. I've been rear-ended twice with only mild dings to the bumper, while doing a total of $4500 damage to two different idiots who obviously can't find the brakes.


Worst Features

Put some tires with better wear on the truck. Integrate a garage door opener, the garage door opener holder is useless for most openers. Instead use this are for a hidden compartement w/ a cigerette lighter plug for power.

2001 GMC Sierra 1500 Extended Cab 4dr Extended Cab SLE 2WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


Review

SLE Ext Cab, Sportside,5.3, tow, HD
suspension. The truck rides like a
frikkin' wagon train. Absolutely
loathe driving iy. I don't
understand how everyone says it rides
great. I'm going to put
Bilstein's "comfort" shocks and hope it
provides a cure. Other than its ride,
the truck is great! Nice, comfortable
and roomy inside. Looks fantastic!
Reliability has not been an issue. Has
more shakes and rattles than I prefer.
Gas mileage has been consistent around
16mpg. Contemplating a Radix
supercharger. Decent power is not
enough. I'd recommend buying this
truck, but looks alone does not make
for lasting love.


Best Features

Aesthetically pleasant. Comfortable seats.


Worst Features

Softer suspension...but I think they have it now. Auto feature for passenger window. Ability to turn off electrochromic rear view mirror.
