2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
Replaced a disaster 6.0 PSD (too many warranty invoices overloaded glove box) and went back to gasser GMC. Truck is fully fitted out and has never been in the shop for any warranty work. Averaging 19.7 mpg city/hwy and consistently get over 20 on the hwy at 75 mph (about what I expected for this heavy truck). Auto 4WD is great in the snow and wet weather, and tow/haul functions as designed. Can cruise all day at 75-80 mph on the interstate--comfortable with smooth ride. Good leg room in the back seat for adults. Reasonably quiet ride with lots of room--tight finish, no rattles or squeaks.
Auto 4WD. Tracks very well in snow and on wet roads with all-season tires. Tow/haul function is great when towing. Like the auto volume control on the radio. Bose stereo with aux connection. Use Bluetooth phone system with great sound clarity--connections have no idea I am on the speaker phone.
A little more low-end torque when entering freeway. Can't figure out why brakes squeal occasionally--even when rotors are clean--but not a big issue. Should have spray-in bed liner and door sill guards on premium SLE's for the price charged (instead of paint).
2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
i will say that I enjoy driving the truck when it's not at the dealer with issues. has a real nice sound, but the 4 speed transmission makes an alarming jerky upshift at about 30 kph. horribly unreliable. definitely a money pit. the dealer really doesn't care and screws me over by saying they didn't find anything and charge me $70 labor every time. truck's left me stranded more times than necessary. had it in for dead battery every morning and the truck has been in for the cylinder deactivation system not kicking back to 8 cylinders when needed. auto rear locking differential wouldn't unlock. overall, should've done my research and paid a bit more for a Ford.
looks nice, black interior, auto 4x4
quality control, get rid of the horrible thumpy drivetrain and make a better extended cab structure. put baffles in the gas tank and redo the seats so they maintain comfort after 5000 miles.
2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 6.5 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
I have the experience of driving botht he F-150 and the new GMC and I have to honestly say after owning both vehicle, that the F-150 seems more solid. The 6 speed transmission shift funny, it shifts when it seems like it should hold the gear longer and downshifts when it shouldn't. Sometimes for no reason at all, it will just shift hard. I pull a 6000 pound camper trailer with my GMC and pulled the same one with the F-150. The GMC transmition is just not up to the task. If a GMC can not do a truck's job, who can?? Perhaps Dodge, I hear they make a good truck these days. Hopefully GM will take a serious look at their trans in next years model, and consider a recall on current ones.
Love GM different package features in their truck lines. They are better than ford. You can pretty much get and pay for features you want and leave the ones you do not want/need.
Dump, or figure out a cure for the lazy 6 speed tranny, and you might actually have a truck that will not make a guy feel bad after they have paid over 46000.00 for!! How about a recall when you have figured out a cure. Too bad, I really like my GM dealer too.
2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 2dr Regular Cab 4WD 8 ft. LB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
What can I say? Everything about the truck disappointing from the noisy driveline, to the thumps & plunks, sloshing fuel tank the crappy cheap foam seats to the idiots at the dealerships who stand there and give you stupid looks like you actually expect them to be able to fix these problems.
Nothing anymore I am so disgusted with the US brand I will not buy another.
Go back to making trucks not noisy uncomfortable thumping, bumping sloshing midget mobiles
2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4dr Extended Cab 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)
The fuel sloshes in the tank, the brakes squeak, the trans clunk and thumps, service people are incompetent and have the same old worthless GM attitude, cab is too narrow.
Nothing anymore, seat are good first 1,000 after that they start to change by the time 10,000 miles i totally hate driving and the dealers say there nothing they can if they replace the next will the same thing
