A regretful purchase, a lemon all the way around.

2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD Work Truck

The fit and finish on this truck is terrible. The buttons on the dashboard are all worn down, the dashboard cracked twice, and a it leaks when it rains. You have to shift in manual when using tow mode because it doesn't shift at the proper points, even though I had the transmission reprogrammed at the dealership. It also has grounding issues. I am very disappointed in this truck, after having a Silverado for years I thought I was upgrading but I was not.

Good Dependable Truck. My truck came set up with trailer brakes

2008 GMC Sierra 2500HD Work Truck

My truck is a 4 door. It has a great stereo, AM, FM and CD player. Cruise control, adjustable mirror and seats. Good on gas mileage and very comfortable to drive and ride in. You can fit 6 people. Has a tow package. Has a bed cover and came with window trims.
