The GMC Sierra 1500 is a reliable pickup.

Depending upon the miles, it can make or break the pickup. Obviously, the lower the better. Still, with the 2007-2013 model GMC or Chevrolet pickups, they tend to have higher miles. Anyhow, they're prone to electrical problems. Also, the Active Fuel Management (AFM) is a serious bummer with these trucks. The AFM shuts off half of the motor, leaving 4 cylinders active. I would highly recommend getting the motor converted to a full V8. This is an expensive, but rewarding process. It involves head work, timing work, a new camshaft lobed correctly for a V8 motor, new lifters, valves, and gaskets. It�s possible that there could be more to the process. The pickup is overall very comfortable. I drove 6+ hours with no issues whatsoever. The stock sound system works fine. The radio is perfectly placed. Overall, the pickup is something I would recommend to anyone.

Great pickup truck with great power and very reliable.

Very comfortable and smooth ride. Great power and reliability. The four wheel drive works perfectly and I have never had any major issues on a truck that is going on ten years old. I love driving my GMC Sierra and my next vehicle will definitely be another GMC Sierra. Everything about this truck is great. I would recommend a GMC Sierra to anyone that is looking for a reliable and very comfortable pickup truck. I use my truck for everything. From hauling my brothers boat to getting bails of hay for my father in law to just driving back and forth to work. This is an amazing vehicle. We have taken this truck on family vacations and the comfort of this truck is very impressive. If I had to I would buy this truck again. Very reliable and I can't say enough about the power that my GMC Sierra 1500 has. Great truck.

Back up parking assistance which is great in the dark.

For starters, I love the color. Not many I see like it driving down the road. The perfect height for me as I am a female. It definitely has the get up and go factor, which making it easier to get onto interstates and passing others. The performance is great. I have never had any problems with it when it comes to being reliable especially in the winter months. The seats are comfortable but wish it was heated leather. Overall nice size for a family.
