2008 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE1 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


This Truck has been nothing but problems. Starts out with, 6 door locks being replaced, A new radio, rattles, dir seat broke, steering wheel Bearing went bad. Now no warranty left, Have HVAC issues, it does not start up on the first try dealer told me it’s the fuel pump, which will cost 1000 bucks. I cannot believe GM would even put-out this truck and call it professional grade. What a POS. The transmission shifts terribly, the driveline is noisy with clunks and the engine has oil consumption issues. IF YOU HAVE AN LC9 alum block 5.3L AFM ENGINE OR CREW CAB CHECK THE OIL. You will need new pistons installed and an AFM oil shield after 30,000. I'm going back to a FORD F150

Best Features

The truck looks good. Too bad the Quality is poor.

Worst Features

GM needs to get it together. The New GM is a Joke. If They keep making vehicles like this they deserve to go under. Until that happens, Do yourself a favor and buy a Ford. I leased F150's since 96 to 08 and had all but three small issues. GM Please spend money don't go with cheap suppliers.
