      Great older model that runs fantastic!

      2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

      My truck has served me well. It runs great with minimal problems throughout the years. I am bummed that it is only 2 wheel drive. I have found some adventures difficult to handle due to this. The full size bed assists with my travels. I installed a tow package for an RV and it has worked really well. I plan to have this truck for many more years to come.

      - Jeanie D

      Sierra truck review great truck.

      2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

      Great truck but some of the issues have been the back driver side door lock sticks. The airbag sensor needed replace but everything else about the truck is great I love it. I am looking to add some aftermarket accessories once I have the funds. The truck has a great ride and plenty of room. The towing capacity is plenty for whatever I need it to.

      - Sam W

      Great truck for work and play.

      2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE

      Great truck, very reliable, but it rusts like crazy. Still it's rusty but trusty and comfortable and good for towing up to 9500 lbs. Gets about 16 mpg in normal commuting, never gets stuck in the snow. Runs like a tractor with the 5.3 vortec. Haven't tried e85 yet but it's nice to have the option.
