Great truck for traveling.

2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT

I've only had the vehicle for a few months, but I love it. I bought it used with 136,000 miles. So far, I have had to change a spark plug. The truck rides well and seems to do well for its size with gas mileage. All of the features are great. The only complaint I have is that it has a little less legroom than other full size vehicles.

White GMC sierra 1500 slt ext cab.

2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT

Kinda rough when it shifts gears and downshifting is more noticeable almost klunks. The dealer didn't go over the vehicle at all before they split so it has a need for an oil change. Other than that it's alright. I'd like a sunroof though. And the rear windshield to open would be nice as well.

Luxury in a Pick-up Truck

2011 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT

I can't complain at all about my truck. It's got every luxury I could ask for plus it rides nice and smooth. I have a v8 engine so I have tremendous power. I can drive this truck in rain, snow, mud, sand, anything! I always feel very safe in this truck.
