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

2003 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

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 1500 SLE

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.

It's got a clean design and gets up and goes real good.

2003 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

It's a workhorse and does what you need as long as you take care of it! It's got decent gas mileage, and enough power to haul a hefty amount. The bed is standard sized and also the body is pretty solid. Ordering parts for it is no issue, seems there's not a shortage of replacement parts.

Great running trucks. My 03 has 315k.

2003 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

Great motor, smooth ride, decent sized bed for hauling and storage, power windows, locks, Bose sound system is amazing. Bifold rear doors for easy back seat entry, easy steering, normal maintenance isn't expensive and replacement parts are always available.
