Used 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Crew Cab Consumer Reviews
Doors/cab seals are too tight, shouldn't have to slam the door. Only 18 mpg, not the 20 as the window sticker says. I get better gas mileage from my '98 Suburban. Knock in the steering. AC vent door noise. Front windshield not sealed correctly. Cheap radio and even cheaper speakers sound terrible. Very uncomfortable driver seat- No adjustments. Fuse box in the way of your left foot. Very disappointed in the engineering and material quality. Very little thought went into designing this truck, only profit. The whole truck is fake, proven by the fake chrome rims. I bought this truck planning to keep it 10+ years, now I can't wait to get rid of it, ASAP.
I have owned several GM trucks and one Ford - this is definitely the best I've owned. The acceleration is very good, the truck handles well, transmission shifts are smooth, and it is very quiet and comfortable for a pickup. Pulls a 6,000# boat like a dream. My only minor complaint is a slightly mushy brake pedal feel. It seems that you have to apply more pressure than on other trucks I've driven. Overall, a very nice truck, and with the current GM offer, a good value in my opinion.
bought this truck from pasty lou with 138k on dash. 11k i paid for it. Since ive owned this truck it has been FULL of electrical problems,dash fades,mirrors,heat went out last winter. I really do love this truck ive owned it for 2 half years, now the motor JUST blew do to "air" ,blowing oil all over right side of motor 198k on dash. So muffler man putting a new motor into it .I am shocked about the motor due to me putting 60k on dash 55k all on e way seems like it would be ALLOT better built. No i have never pulled anything. Also 4x4 light never works right always have to shut truck off and push button right when i start truck up or it will not switch over. But it has never leaked a drop other then power stering fluid easy fix. All in all not the best truck 2 fuel pumps in 6 months which was the only time i was stranded other then motor blowing which i guess was caused by a whole down by dip stick. Still owe 7k oh and door handle broke back seat last summer daughter pulled while locked.
No major complaints. Overall a very well balanced truck. Roomy, comfortable, decent gas mileage. Recently traded for a 2008 model because of the rebates and incentives but if not for that this would've been a keeper.
the defective casteck heads in my 5.3 leak coolant. this causes what sounds like bad lifter. know what heads are in your 5.3 before you buy, otherwise you could wind up with truck with repairs more than its value.
