GMC Sierra 1500 - reliable and practical.

Overall, I like the vehicle. It is older but is still reliable. Because of its age, it is getting rust spots that have to be fixed and I wish it wouldn’t rush so easily. It is very comfortable and has plenty of room in the backseat for three more people, even adults. The handle on the rear passenger door does not work from the outside. The heated seats tend to turn themselves on. The vehicle switches from 2 wheel dr. To four-wheel-drive at the push of a button and even though it is spacious, it drives like a regular size vehicle. The drivers door has to be closed hard or it will not shut all of the way. Luckily, that has not caused any problems. It is still locks and it does not drain the battery. Overall, it is a great vehicle. Reliable, comfortable, and useful.

Our car is easy to drive and easy to climb on the hills.

We love our car. Its comfy and easy to load and unload our stuffs mostly if we are on vacations. And this is the best car we got! Big space and run so smoothly and easy to drive mostly if we go hunting. Can climbs on the hills. And we don't have a heavy problem on our car. The only problem we got is to change oil because we don't know how to do a changed oil. So we always bring it to the company who knows how to changed oil and everything. And the rest is good. And our car have a4 wheels that we can used to climb on the hills that easy. So if you are planning you buy cars GMC is the best one if you are always going somewhere just like hunting, fishing, vacations. And more. All the stuffs you need to bring is fit in this car! That's why I loved our car¡.

Stuck on my truck. A sound truck that packs a lot of punch.

My GMC sierra 1500 slt is a great truck. It has been a reliable truck that I have owned for 6 yrs now. Whether your towing a camper or a big round bale of hay this truck does it with ease. I have had to replace the battery, spare tire carrier and front bearing on the drivers side. It has a smooth ride with plenty of room for everyone. I plan on keeping this truck till it no longer runs so I am in the process of fixing the rust on the rocker panels and above the rear wheels. I replaced the shocks and its getting a new paint job with new custom bedside stickers and rims. I have no doubt that with a little tlc the next 100, 000 miles will be just as good as the first.
