Great Truck, Hideous Transmission!
By Baystate on


2002 GMC Sierra 1500 2dr Regular Cab SL 4WD LB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


The defective transmission outweighs
all the good things about this truck!
The transmission clunks when shifting
from 2nd to 3rd. This clunk is so bad
that there is no pleasure in driving
this otherwise great truck. GM tech
bulletin says this is normal! If so,
then why doesn't it do it from 1st to
2nd, or 3rd to 4th. Since when is a
transmission that clunks and bangs
normal for a new $25,000 vehicle? GM
refuses to repair! I was told by the
dealer to get used to it. Gee Thanks!

Best Features

None! The transmission tips the scales away from anything good.

Worst Features

GM should replace or repair their defects, or loose more customer like me. My next vehicle will be the first non-GM in 24 years. All my 24 years of loyalty to GM got for me was them telling me to get used to the defect!
