GMC sierra 1500 reliability.

I have owned my 2004 GMC sierra for 6 years. I have had no issues needing repairs. I have routinely changed the oil, replaced tires due to normal wear and tear. The vehicle has never broken down on me. If I was in the market for a new truck I would first look at a GMC sierra based on the very positive experience I have had with my current GMC sierra. I have friends who have gone through two other brand of truck in the 6 years I have had my GMC. The one thing I wished my truck did have was a backup camera already with it but it doesn't just because it is an older model.

Gets the Job Done, Time & Time Again!

My GMC Sierra 2500 is a fabulous all around truck. Maintenance is a breeze and the long truck bed can really handle a load. This is the pickup I heard cattle with, it handles remarkable well in the pastures, rides the different ground elevations with ease. The AC cranks premium cold air & the factory sound system really does a remarkable job. The only major problem I have had is the dashboard lights, sometimes they work & sometimes the don't. A slight annoyance I can live with considering the many great qualities this truck possesses.

The color scheme could have been picked a little better in my own opinion.

The brakes are not the greatest and there has been problems with the transmission occasionally but overall is not a bad vehicle. The doors get stuck and have had some problems with the mechanisms to where it would not open or shut properly. The alignment has had to be repaired a few times but the vehicle has lasted past it is years so I would say it is a fairly decent vehicle.
