2002 GMC Sierra overview. A truck I've owned since 18k miles on it. Great truck.

I bought it in the fall of 2002, had 18k miles on it. Was a sales vehicle at a lot. Had some bands go out in trans early on purchase. Was under warranty then. Gets approximate 15 mpg. No major problems. Has a tow/haul button, and is 4x4. The switches have held up nicely over the very long time I've had it. My gas gauge sometimes has a failure to show correct fuel amount, but I think my gauge panel may need replaced. Dash has zero cracks in it. The 4 wheel drive is needed with almost any type of snow or ice, unless you have somewhat of a load in the bed. Has great kickdown power when passing other vehicles. Hauled lots of firewood with it over the years, still runs good. Never changed the spark plugs, or had a major tune-up, just minor fixes. Headlamps are easily replaced, no wrenches needed. Tailgate assembly is plastic and broke over time. The rear door latches are also plastic and have broken also. Seats are very comfortable and has plenty of room inside. Paint has held up on the body, but the body has rear wheel rust and cab corner rust. I had a bed liner professionally sprayed in (rhino liner), great addition. Exhaust is factory and no problems, must be stainless. The brake lines are starting to go bad from age and use. Got the original serpentine belt on it, squeaks a little now, but is still intact and nay be a little sloppy with use. This truck currently has 200k miles on it and still runs almost as good as it did when I first drove it. Very pleased with it, and will not hesitate to purchase another one.

if you like to ride in comfort of your work truck

My maroon 2002 GMC Sierra extended cab was a great purchase! I travel a lot for my work and it�s just what I need. It�s not bad on gas and has plenty of room for my luggage and also my working partners luggage! It has a console that lifts up to make another seat so it seats up to 6 people if I ever needed it! The seats adjust to the perfect spot for me! There is also plenty of room on the back floorboard for things to go under the seat.. if I was to buy another truck I would definitely purchase this one again!

Reviewing my 2002 GMC sierra 1500.

My 2002 GMC sierra is an amazing truck. Is has a 6. 5ft bed and can seat up to 5 (not counting the driver). The center console folds up into a seat on the front row which is convenient when driving people. The passenger seat also has optional airbags which I enjoy if I ever need to turn if off of there is a child in the front seat. The gas mileage is not great (18 mpg on the highway) but overall is not bad considering it is a 16 year old truck.
