The truck is a very strong truck that is reliable.

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Base

I love the truck after buying it used. It's a strong reliable truck and it is strong with pulling four wheelers or any other sort of trailers. It gets fairly decent gas mileage, around 17 mpg even when pulling something. It has a 5.3 engine in it which is a pretty reliable motor. Only issue I have had is a blown cv boot around 99,000 miles. Overall I would highly recommend this truck to anyone.

My truck is very roomy and I love it. I would recommend it to anyone with kids.

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Base

Truck has been very reliable. Dependable and very roomy. I love the smooth ride and the color is great when it is not so clear. Gas guzzlers tho. And the dash is starting to crack. The backseat is very roomy. The truck is durable and it is a very smooth riding truck.
