GMC review, unreliable vehicles with nice interior

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Work Truck

We got this car about two years ago and at first it was very reliable, however over the next few short months we would come to find out the opposite. This car has the engine light on constantly and engine problems along with it. Makes a very loud noise that sounds like a tank whenever you stop the vehicle. Battery dies often. Not a reliable car but the interior is nice and good looking. Heated seats and other features make that fun.

Great vehicle for college students

2008 GMC Sierra 1500 Work Truck

V6 engine is great for gas mileage but there's no cruise control. No power windows or locks. The interior is simple but yet comfortable in padding and overall design of bucket seats. Floorboards are very easy to clean due to no carpeting installed. AM/FM Radio with CD player and option for XM Radio.
