2006 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I bought this truck used with 50K miles; GMC certified + factory warranty remaining for 10K more miles.
I have had lots of problems out of this truck. In less than 5 months of ownership;
-the center console shorted out
-the rear brakes locked up and burned up the rear-end which had to be replaced (not covered under warranty)
-Lots of vibration in front end- the front end came loose from the truck and had to be re-welded
-Power steering kept cutting off when turning (frayed line attributed to the front end separation)
-Short in heated seats
-Tail gate had to be replaced and now the new one will not open (dealer installed)
-Transmission is now slipping

This truck has only seen pavement
