2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Extended Cab 4WD 8 ft. LB (5.3L 8cyl 4A)


Cab is too Skinny. Accelerator and brake pedal are too close together. Seats are too Skinny foam too soft compress's and hurts to sit on, after @ 3k-4k miles. Cab entrance is too low I Bumped my head getting in I am 6ft tall. Too Much Sun Glare windshield hard to clean on inside. Brake Noise. Wind Noise. Stump Clunk, not fixable by GM Tech's Fuel tank sloshes @ 3/4 to full tank. I can feel a thump from fuel sloshing. Cabin area is much smaller than Ford or Dodge. Seats are very uncomfortable after driving for awhile. Tires spin on wet pavement 500 lb in bed pulling loaded trailer. No lamp under hood hard to add washer fluid or check oil after dark. TPI do not give correct reading

Best Features

Heated Mirrors. Lots of Power. Side turn flashers in mirrors. Dual Brake Lamps and front turn flashers. Good ground clearance.

Worst Features

Put in 2 lamps under hood 1/3 side spacing. Use Michelin Tires. Go Back to space pedals like a Truck not a race car. Use a seat foam like 80's seats that doesn't compress or break down after 800 Miles. 6 spd trans, std. Fix stop clunk at factory. Put baffles in fuel tank. Fire JD Power Liars.
