2009 GMC review: 10 years old and still going.

2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT

I love this vehicle. Considering it is 10 years old, it drives very well and does not have many problems. I recently had to get the engine lifted to change out some parts in the engine. However, other than that, I love all of the amenities that come with the vehicle (sunroof, leather seats, etc). I would strongly recommend the vehicle to anyone. In addition, it has a large bed that is helpful for towing and the cab is large enough to fit 5 people easily.

Good solid pickup. It does what I ask of it.

2009 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT

Its a solid pickup. One issue is the mirrors are a little difficult to get adjusted properly. The mileage could be better but it's a v8. Decent ride quality not too rough. Overall a pretty comfortable and well performing vehicle. I would have preferred leather seats. The lack of rear window defrost is less than ideal as well.
