2005 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Crew Cab SLE 4WD SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Bought truck new and totally disappointed. Truck now has over 104k miles and here is list of repair. Passenger hub replaced under warranty and driver hub replaced at 76k. Trans rebuild 75k. Torque converter replaced @ 83k. Power steering has been terrible since 30k. Front diff passenger seal leaks since under warranty and driver front diff seal leaked at 101k. Now water pump gasket leak @ 103k. U-joint at T-case & drive shaft replaced at 86k. Interior makes noises and this is considered normal. Noisy cab when cruising at over 45 miles. Rust is everywhere on the chassis. My last GM light duty truck

Best Features

To be honest I bought the truck because of the price. I got a great deal on it. But I guess I got what I payed for.

Worst Features

4 L 60E tranny is to small for truck. Should of had a 4L80E tranny. So many 4 L 60 trannys are getting rebuild way before necessary. In my case the 3-4 clutch went out so no 3 or 4. No hard driving or neutral drops damaged this tranny. Very bad design. GM uses this tranny on Colorado, Trailblazer.
