The experience I have with gm products

2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

The truck is very good the only problem with these trucks are the engine. I have never had a problem besides the minor things that go wrong on all cars. The truck is showing its age and leaked oil but you can't beat it. The only thing I have to say is if you buy this truck as with any vehicle maintain it!

Chug Along GMC we aren't done yet.

2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

I have had the vehicle for 4 years now and put over 60k miles on it. The only items I have replaced is a fuel filter and tires, along with fluids obviously. The truck is very reliable and I have never had any issues. I used this truck to drive back and forth to college on the weekends when I was free.

Custom paint and exhaust truck

2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

The only problem I have with my vehicle is the amount of oil that it burns. It burns up to 5 quarts of oil every two weeks. It is a 5.3l vortec motor with a custom exhaust. The truck itself is white with a black hood and a black tailgate that I painted myself. It has all LEDs all the way around

- Brandon P

Very good vehicle. Some rust issues.

2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

The 2000 GMC Sierra is a good vehicle. It has 4 wheel drive that is good and reliable. The engine has good power and the suspension is good. I have had issues with the brake lines rusting and the back bumper rusting but other than that it's a all around good vehicle.

- Charles P

There is no highlight its just a simple plain Jane truck

2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

I do love my vehicle but I have spent a ton of money repairing motor issues and now transmission problems. It doesn't have the towing ability I have seen in other trucks. I have seen better quality trucks on the market and Chevy doesn't stand up to heavy hauling.

- Natalie L

I would call this truck an old stallion. Gets the job done...

2001 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

This truck is so reliable... I have had it for quite some time it does good mileage on gas and it is almost hitting 400,000 on the mileage... Still running strong. It is really good for projects when you need to pick up and drop off big awkward equipment.
