what a dissapointment
By mistified on


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

Best Features

my after market back-up camera that I installed has greatly reduced close encounters due to poor visibility from drivers seat.

Worst Features

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.
