Love My GMC
By Johnnyz on


2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (5.3L 8cyl 6A)


I purchased a my 2009 GMC Sierra Quad Cab Z71 4x4 with the 5.3L and SLE2 pkg. on January 2, 2009. I did have some issues with the brakes (high spots on rotors and drums) when first purchased but those have been resolved. The reason why I purchased the truck was to consolidate; traded in a S10 and Nissan Xterra for a 4 door pickup b/c twins were on the way. This is the first year of the 6 speed auto so it still needs some refinement. Love the gas mileage but can't wait until they put out a pickup with a smaller diesel engine. Handling and torque are excellent.

Best Features

The ride is excellent for a truck. Towing, no problem. Towed 3 people out of snow banks like they were a piece of cotton. I love the front bench seat with the fold down center console.

Worst Features

Go back to disk brakes on the rear. Should put in an overhead console on every model with a place to put sunglasses. Watch out for the traction control; it can get you in trouble in the snow. Fix the hard transmission shifts, both up and down.
