Review

I bought this one owner truck used from a dealership with 65k miles. I have had it for less than a year and put 13k miles on it and it has been in the shop more times than my 2001 Silverado with 220k miles on it. The front end is awful. I have had ball joints, drive axles, and brake issues over and over again. DO NOT BUY THIS TRUCK. Buy a Toyota, they’re more reliable and you might actually get to drive it rather than sit in the shop

Review

My 2009 GMC Truck has 35000 and I have already had to put over a 1000.00 into it. First, after 2 years the Evap Vent went out covered under warranty, they replaced the vent. I went out again shortly after year 3 after warranty. Had to pay 500.00 for a special kit to be installed. This was a known problem but GMC would not pay. Year 4, the alternator went bad. 480.00 to replace. Now the steering is making a loud groaning noise when turning. Said may be a bushing and could cost a small fortune to fix. So I would never recommend GM to anyone and will never by another. In my opinion, any vehicle should go 5 years if taken care of without any issues. Pitiful product GM.


Worst Features

Need to build your trucks better and stand behind them with a 5 year warranty.

Review

The engineer who designed the headlamps on the GMC Sierra 2009 should be fired yesterday! You pretty much have to disassemble the front end to replace a freakin headlamp! If you don't have time to mess with it and take it to the dealer, they'll only charge you $174.86 dam dollars to put in a new head lamp which you can purchase at the auto parts store for $13. Ridiculous design!
