2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 2dr Regular Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
a lot of negative reviews on here and wanted to set the record straight.
We've had the 09 Sierra since new, and it now has 177,000miles on it.
These have been hard miles, mostly pulling trailers, this is strictly a work truck, sometimes it pulls in excess of 10,000lbs (twice what it is rated for).
In its lifetime we have changed the front brake pads once (still has original rotors)
we have changed the tires a few times and the oil about every 10,000miles.
Everything else is original, rear brakes, tranny fluid, air filter.
Truck runs and drives like new!
No rattles or squeaks, we've had over 30 work trucks, never had one this tough and dependable.
Very good on fuel as well.
Overall dependability, comfort, driving position, fuel efficiency.
I really can't think of anything.
2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SL 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
I bought my 2009 GMC Junk to replace my awesome 1994 GMC 3/4 ton which I sold (huge mistake) driver visibility non existant inside lower corners cut out of mirrors prevent rear view near truck... lane lines in mirror
appear several vehicles behind, must adjust mirrors to see curb/sidewalk when parallel parking then back into objects no longer visible when mirror set to curb, oversize posts and mirror assembly severely restricts drivers ability to see pedestrians or objects (pedestrian collision stats anyone?) parked my 1994 confidently within inches without incident 6 years my 2009 is full of dents after 3 years like many on road including police vehicles observed. eng., tran, steering suck
my after market back-up camera that I installed has greatly reduced close encounters due to poor visibility from drivers seat.
Redesign driver visibility to what it used to be... fix problems with engine, trans., steering and brakes Inform dealers not to try and tell someone with over 40 yrs experience driving cars, trucks, vans, busses and even parking 45' tractor trailer units that squeaky brakes and all my other concerns are normal. if this is the new normal from GM I will no longer purchase GM products of which I currently own 3 I feel sorry for the service managers having to defend this junk to intelligent bewildered customers.

2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
Everything still works as advertised. I wish every decision worked so well.
I am getting more than the advertised gas mileage, how often can anyone say that? Well laid out instrument panel and controls make driving that much more comfortable.

GMC = Government Motors Crap!
WHere do I start, Fuel economy sucks, 2 mps less than rated, been checked out no mechanical reasons, not driver error I drive conservatively.
Vehicles, people and objects disappear behind the review mirror because of the lowered roof line, I cannot clean the windshield because of the sloped design.
Your seats suck, around a 1,000 miles the foam starting softer and I now feel like I am sinking in the seat, very uncomfortable, no left ffo rest, so I am sliding around when braking.
Noisey peace of crap, stop klunks, bumps and thumps, hard downshifts.
Less head room, right edge of right foot gets caught on plastic shield next to accelerator. Objects/vehicle disappering behind review mirror when cornering. 2 feet of wasted dash board depth, because sloped windshield. less shoulder room than my 1989 Sierra, cheaper seats crap seat than the 89, less head room, less shoulder. worse fuel economy
