Great truck for towing my utility trailer and driving in snow.

My GMC truck is ok to me. I bought it used and after driving it for a few weeks I noticed a lot of little things wrong with it. Some of the problems were lights burned out on cluster panel, stuck parking brake, flat spare tire, worn rear brakes, just to name a few. It has almost 200,000 miles on it so I cannot complain too much about it. The truck does have 4 wheel drive and the complete upgraded package including heated seats. All in all it serves my purpose and even has the towing package and bed liner.

Bulletproof trucks that last forever!

2003 GMC Sierra is the best truck I've ever owned. I have the 5.3L and it has plenty of horsepower and gets about 14-15 miles per gallon. 4 wheel drive push button shifting is great, only problem I've had is the switch went bad and had to be replaced. Wasn't expensive and very easy to install. All around good truck, I get compliments every way I go. One of the most reliable vehicle I've ever purchased.

Pros and cons if GMC sierra truck.

At first I loved this truck. However soon after the warranty limit over started experiencing problems. All dashboard gauges except the speedometer stopped working. The most inconvenient is not having the gas gauge work. Also we have bubbling paint issues all over the truck. In researching this we found a lot of other GMC owners are experiencing the same problems.
