4.3l crew cab SLE Update
By gary1965 on


2014 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4dr Crew Cab 5.8 ft. SB (4.3L 6cyl 6A)


Was forced to make GM repurchase under Lemon Law. Had an issue with snow entering the heat ducting causing ice to build up on blower. After multiple service calls dealership decided they could not fix it and told me there was nothing they could do. Living in Michigan made the truck almost impossible to drive in the winter. GM also was no help. Customer solutions person managing my case would not return my calls. In the end forced to sue. Very disappointed. No apologies or any effort from GO to rectify the situation.

Have been driving for almost two months now and am a little underwhelmed. Its a smooth ride and the road noise is much improved over my 2007 Silverado but the 4.3 just doesn't seem to be enough for this truck. The mpg on the highway have been about 20 which is ok but the city mpg so far has been in the
9-11 mpg range which is very unsettling considering GMs mpg claims.
