Customer Service: 1.0

University.I came in to look at a vehicle that I told the agent I wanted to buy. First thing he told me was to bring my husband in to test drive it. I don't have a husband I was planning on buying the vehicle myself with my money. Told him I had fallen in love with it. Once again I was told to have my man come in and rest drive it. I'm very upset to think after telling him I am the one buying he didn't want anymore to do with me. Never asked if I wanted to test drive, nothing! I will tell every woman I meet to keep clear of this place.

We owned this marvelous dependable truck for 15 years. Never had a major problem. This truck should have 100k miles left easily. Great truck I will miss almost as much as my wife...Her name was Julie.

Purchased brand new; 130,000 miles. Has performed exceptionally. I live in the desert and am used to problems with plastic pieces breaking; not so much with this truck. still looks like new after 10 years. Maintenance issues: Plastic retainer on tail gate latch (and cover that broke trying to access it) at 120,000 miles, Water pump (at 105,000 miles), fuels pump went bad around 40,000 miles ('cause of bad gas) and dealer replaced (under warranty) with S-10 style pump. Caused many problems. Once I went to an independent repair shop, it got fixed right. Took 45 min to lower spare tire 'cause of warped plastic sleeve that jack handle goes into. Ave mpg 15-17 (including 70+++ mph to Vegas).

Overall, I love the truck. It fires up every morning. I have had it for almost four years. I drive 30,000 miles a year with my job and it holds up great. The biggest repair I had to make was to have the intake manifold gaskets replaced a few years ago. The Gen III LS-based engines are notorious for that. I get about 15-17MPG no matter what kind of driving I do. Piddly things are starting to fail like lights on the radio & HVAC, lumbar support, and the console lid, but mechanically, it's as Professional Grade as ever! Someday I'll trade it in on a new Sierra/Silverado, but right now it does what I need it to do.

I have loved this truck since I have owned it. I have added all sorts of extras like intake and exhaust work, so that is why some of my ratings are high. My only issue that I have had with this truck is the backseat. Once my daughter was born, trying to get a car seat in there safety has always been an issue. Nothing has ever gone wrong and only replaced things that I upgraded.

I purchased this vehicle new and have enjoyed it. However, there have been some quality issues. Interior panels have all been very noisy and loose from the day it was driven off the lot. The digital odometer module quit lighting-up at 35,000 miles. Still keeps accurate mileage, just never know "how many" miles. Not much value to me any more. Will be donating it to charity by the end of this year. Hope it will help others.

This truck is comfortable and has adequate power however, the quality of some components leave a lot to be desired. When having the front brakes replaced I was told that the rear (emergency) brakes need to be replaced as they were metal on metal. I had not used the emergency brakes more than 2 or 3 times since I purchased the truck. The rear brakes had apparently locked in a semi-on position and ate thru the pads. The dealer told me that the factory had redesigned the mechanism on newer models. Obviously this was a design problem. The fuel gauge has gone erratic twice with a repair cost of $900 each time. They recommend a new wiring harness at the same time, another design problem.

I have owned this truck for 9 years. Highway, city, offroad. Hot sun, freezing winters with heavy, deep snow and ice, and torrential rain. My version is a 4DR Extended Cab SLE Z71, 5.3L with custom cap and racks. This is a fabulous truck. Handles great and delivers fantastic performance under absolutely any condition and/or load. But it had growing pains: bad ABS brakes,and some electrical issues with power windows and doors, and extended cab hinges that didn't fit properly in cold weather. All fixed over time and the brakes are now very good(watch out for the door hinges, though.)Now in 2009 I am trading it for a Suburban Z71 for a roomier cab (family has grown). I will miss this truck.

Great Truck, just won't stop!

This is one heck of an awesome truck. I've loved it from the day I bought it and still love it today. It has been a work truck from the day I took it home, and after 170,000 miles it still is going strong. Love the reliability of it, never have to worry about that. I find it a little wierd but I have never had to change anything, or even touch the brakes, and they still look great, I was told this was b/c of the 4 Wheel ABS/Disc system. I own the 4.8L V8 model and get "great" gas mileage for a full size V8 truck, especially loaded with tools. 15 city, and 21 hwy. These number came with the help of some aftermarket parts, like K&N filter, & better plugs and wires. I hope you enjoy yours.

I have had my truck for 2 years it has about 150k miles on it and I have not had hardly any problems out of it what so ever. This has been a great truck all around. Im impressed with my gas miliage also I still get about 18-20 in the city and and 22-24 on the hwy I guess. For the age and mileage this is still wonderful. I would definitely buy another truck like this and recomend them to friends and family. I also can tell you that this truck holds its own in wrecks. I have been in 1 wreck in this truck and it held together very well better than some bigger trucks that I have seen! The damage and the cost of repair were pretty minimum for the wreck.

Great truck but fuel milage stinks.

I bought this truck used last year love the design the ride and comfort. the gas mileage stinks but I wouldnt trade it for anything else. About a month after I bought the truck I had an electrical problem but it worked itself out. I just bought a meyers diamond snowplow and I am going to put it on this week. The truck has plenty of power to push snow. I work on a farm and I have a 4 ton trailer, and I can haul a 3 ton skidsteer on the trailer and she still has plenty of power.

I purchased this truck over others because I thought it was better built. The truck is not driven hard. I payed 30,000 for it and have been fixing it ever since. To the tune of 5,000 so far. Some of the things fixed are, Both window regulators, 2 sets of wheel bearings, abs braking system, water pump, fuel gauge, air compressor bearings, fuel pressure sensor, throttle plate replace, battery replace after 1yr, leather seat material rip after 1 year, payed 750 to fix it because it was running rough. I evetually found the problem to be a loose oxy sensor which should have cost nothing to fix. Also I think that the cost of getting this truck fixed at the dealer is crazy excessive. Won't buy another one ever

I am surprised to see so many positive reviews on this vehicle. True, it is fun to drive and has a good ride and great stereo, there have been several disappointing mechanical problems. It seems to chew through brake pads in about 10000 miles. This problem was worse before the recall work on the anti-lock brakes that I am surprised no one else has commented on. Also, the rear tailgate is about to rust off and a brake line has rusted through leading to a brake fluid loss and near braking disaster. Also, numerous squeaks and noises that are undiagnosable.

I like my truck. Pretty good gas mileage for a V-8 (about 18-21 city and 22-24 highway). Comfy ride. A few problems with the rear driveline. Had to replace both u-joints about 6 months ago and now it is squeaking and clanking again. Rear axle probably needs to be rebuilt. 3-rd door is nice, but back seat as a little smaller than I'd like. Pretty good power and towing capabilities. Heater is bad- not very warm and I have to put it on high to even feel any air flow.

I've had my truck for 6 years, and I still love it. It's been a great work truck, and has the comfort of driving a car. It's been great in both the snow and mud, and has never had a problem. It's definitely a keeper. The only thing that I wish is that I would have gotten the rear window defogger, and the 4th door.

I owned a 2000 GMC Sierra 1500 for 4 years. Although, I must say, the engine and trans were reliable, partly because I used Mobil 1 synth. oil and never beat on it. Other things with the truck started to fall apart, i.e., the ABS system would intermittently go off at less than 5mph on dry surfaces, the fuel gauge would start and stop working, the right side mirror was flopping around in the wind, the tailgate handle (plastic) broke off when opening the tailgate one day. The brakes were terrible - including the rotors and way too much distance was needed to stop. The driver's door lock got jammed and wouldn't lock no anymore. Power window linkage broke. Radio lights quit working. too much!

I love my truck, it has everything. The only problem I've had is the power window motors have both gone out and been replaced, and the 4 wd switch goes out and causes message board to read service 4 wd. Seems to be common problem according to dealer and other c/k 1500 owners. Other than that no problems. Gas mileage is not bad for the size of the truck. I figure 18 to 20 mpg, Hwy miles about 480 to tank, hwy & city I got about 454. It's a good looking truck. I get compliments on it all the time. I haven't done much to it, Stainless wheel to wheel nerf bars & tubular grill & soft snapless extreme tonneau cover, everything else stock.

Bought truck new, primary driver. Only tme in the shop was for recalls and minor maintenance. Gas mileage was as advertised both highway and city. Got the towing package tows boat with plenty horsepower to spare. Body still very clean after all the miles and weather. My wife and I always take it on vacations instead of car it is more comfortable wife likes being above the traffic for view. Also used as work truck tow haul feature very helpful when towing have towed car, boat trailer and tow haul rings all of needed horsepower from power range helping to get to speed and maintain it on highway. Have devloped some rattles but to be expected with this many miles. Love it would buy it again!

I bought this truck from my next door neighbor with 14K miles on it. This truck has been relatively problem- free. The only problems I've had is the fuel gauge fluctuates. I was told by the dealer that the float switch deteriorates due to additives in the gas. The power seat switch sometimes won't move the seat more than an inch at a time. I have had some slip in the rear end from a stop, but it only happens once a month or so. Truck has a great ride when it has some cargo in the bed. I took it on a 1600 mile vacation with the wife and 2 kids. Great Trip! Other than that, no complaints. Heated mirrors are probably a waste, unless you plan on plowing snow, then they are a must

I love my truck! I drive it almost daily and I haven't had any problems with it. I pull a 6000 pound fifth wheel camper to the mountains with it and it does not even feel like its working hard (with 3.42 gears!). The tranny sometimes hunts for gears on the long uphill grades, but it never stumbles or lags. The towing mode works well though it only gets about 11 MPG with camper in tow. It normally gets about 16-17 MPG. It has a car-like comfortable ride and handles well. I wouldn't trade it for anything.

Broke down in March 2003 with this 2000 GMC 1500 6 cyl pickup at 73000 km and had to be towed. The distributor cap acquires moisture buildup and kills the spark. I am the second owner so this may have happened before. The towtruck operator and other owners in this area of Eastern Canada said this is a common problem with the newer Chev and GMC pickups in our Canadian wet but cold and damp weather. My previous 1988 Chev went for 15 yrs without this problem. What did they change?

If you don't need leather interior, DVD players, 4 wheel drive, and a useless cab extention, this is one great vehicle. GMC builds their vehicles like a truck, not a truck-looking car. I have loaded it many times and it rides great. This truck fits in standard parking so it also makes a great get around town ride. My last GMC served me well for about 8 years before I traded it in on this one. I will probably keep this one as long if not longer.

I have 73k miles on this truck and not one complaint. Excellent ride, quiet as a tomb inside. Other than replacing tires and changing oil I haven't spent a dime on major repairs. Paint still nice and shiny after 3 years of outside parking. No squeaks, pops, or groans. I've replaced two driving lamp bulbs in 3 years. Also, there's a fuse that controls the ignition that has blown twice. All this has cost me a whopping $21. Definately a keeper.

Over the more than 2 and 1/2 years I've owned this truck I have really come to appreciate the attention to detail taken in its design and build. It has more power than I thought would be needed, until I towed with it. The 7500lb chipper towed easily and seemed right at home behind me. Between the outstanding interior components and the solid, powerful drivetrain I would recommend this vehicle over the competition any day.

The truck rides and handles well. Fuel economy is acceptable. I tow a 18 foot boat without any problems. But I use it primarily for transportation. I have about 41000 miles and lately I have noticed numberous body rattles. The exterior paint is not very hard, it scratches very easy.

This truck is very fun to drive. It has the power, and torque for any situation. I would buy another one but I would not give anyone this one.

Nice truck

The ride quality is excellent and the cabin is very quiet. The rear seats are very spacious and nobody has complained about being uncomfortable. Had to have the "AutoTrac" switch replaced, which the dealer said was a common problem, at about 40000 miles.

love it

I had a regular cab gmc and traded to get more room. I have not regreted the trade. The truck is comfortable and quite. The only problem I have had is a leak in one of the A/C lines which was replaced in an hour. This truck is a keeper.

This has been an excellent truck. Very sharp and extremely well built. Have not had it back to the dealer once for any problems. Fits and finish are perfect.

Truck handles and rides like a car. Has no problem cruising along the highways at 2500 rpm. Beware of factory installed sliding rear windows, frame has history of cracking, causing water leakage into cab.

Great Truck

This is a great truck, fun to drive, rides good, can haul a load, and its quick. Gas Mileage isnt bad for a full size truck with a V8. It has som weaknesses, like too much plastic inside and out. Weak bumpers (front especalliy) , and the metal on the tailgate and bed sides is too thin. but this is a great truck otherwise, and the best new truck you can get, but they sure dont build them like they use to

excellent

excellent overall performance and handling. good for off roading, hauling and highway, fully recommend this truck, by the way it's a 3 door not a 2 door.

I would buy another one!

I have never regretted one payment made. Great looks. Although I have the 4.8L, she moves. I added Flow- Master duals, Hypertech Power Programmer, and Ultra rims w/ T/A Radials. Even with a heavy foot, I got 19 mpg on average. 2 complaints- 1) It's sometimes hard to get the cabin temperature right when using the heater(it heats up quickly, though), and 2) parking the beast in crowded parking lots. I have two children and they never complained about not having enough space in the back to fight with each other. The 4 doors are great if a car is not parked next to you. Since I'm only 5'8", adult passengers in the back have enough room, too.

I was always an F150 fan when it came to small pickups. I couldn't resist the ride the GMC gave, I tested the Dodge, Ford and Toyota, GMC won hands down. I now have the truck for nearly 2 years, with 28k on it. The only issue I had was with GMC service. I had a hard flip toneau cover installed, they soaked me, and put it on incorrectly. Also, a clunking sound from the drive train, that was a known issue released, and they've replaced the alloy yolk with the new Steel yolk, all's fine. This is a great truck, the only other thing I need to do is replace the Firestone tires and I'm golden. I recommend this truck to anyone!

Great Truck!

Great truck with only a few minor problems. A few rattles (never off- road)and the tranny shifts odd in the cold weather. Tends to wheel-hop while braking over uneven surfaces even with anti-lock brakes. Awesome sound system and wonderful ride! I would buy another one.

I recently purchased a 2000 GMC Sierra SLT Ext. Cab from my local dealership and I couldn't be happier. All I've ever bought before were new vehicles, but I couldn't pass up this truck when I saw it. I found a fully loaded GMC, (leather, heated seats, overhead console, fog lights, seat memory position, 5.3L V8 engine) with almost 24,000 miles on it for less than $21,000. I drove off the lot for about $24,000, including ext. warranty. The vehicle was certified.

The only problem I have experienced so far is a clunking in the automatic transmission. This happens when starting up or turning from a slow speed. It sometimes makes the rear wheels chirp.
