Best Truck -- needs a few improvements

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE2 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


I love everything about this truck, except for the upholstery. The charcoal colored cloth picks up lint, dog hair, everything and it's quite visible. But what's worse, the nap on the upholstery is starting to flake off with only 14K miles! Quite honestly, if I had realized what a tremendous vehicle this was in every other way, I would have gone with the SLT or Denali trim, had leather and not have the upholstery issue. This is a keeper -- guess I will be looking for an upholstery shop.

Best Features

Roominess, decent fuel economy, maintenance tire pressure monitored thru e-mail

Worst Features

Drop the microfiber upholstery and go back to what GM has used for years!
