2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


This truck had a number of problems in the 9 months I owned it. By the time I traded it, I had recorded 17 records! Here are a couple problems I dealt with: When the truck idled while rolling, it sounded like there were pebbles in the wheels and a loud 'whistle.' Service said the truck had a bad alternator and replaced it; problem persisted. Later, they replaced the waterpump; Problem fixed. Later I noticed the truck would SLAM into gear when idling down the road... problem turned out to be a transmission part installed backwards! Wow! This may of triggered a recall? I traded the truck.

Best Features

Bluetooth, OnStar, auto headlights, nice armrest, much more comfortable that my last Dodge Truck (ride and ergos).

Worst Features

Build it right GMC! You charge alot for your trucks, I would think they would be built better! I guess Consumer Reports agrees with me! NOTE: I WOULD BUY ANOTHER, but would be nervous doing so.
