No cabin air filters - airflow sensors problems

2012 GMC Sierra 1500 SL

I have a continuous problem with the mass airflow sensor in my vehicle, which causes fuel problems. This has been ongoing since I purchased the vehicle 3 years ago. It also does not have cabin air filters which is very annoying. Had I known this at the time of purchase I would not have followed through. The gears in this particular vehicle are slow and the truck has no go off the gate. RPMs rev up extremely high when trying to pick up speed. Very comfortable to drive in, and is very reliable when not having airflow sensors issues.
