Pros

If you need a truck, this is a good one, except for the gas

Cons

36 gallon tank, avoid a V6, not enough power

Great Overall Truck — The truck has a 4.3L V6 and as a result does not have much power. The fuel tank is very large for 3.00+ fuel costs, 36 gallons. But the truck is a very good truck when used as a truck.Interior is identical to a Silverado. Very stylish.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

2003 Gmc Sierra — You have to love GMC. They are professional grade. unfortunately I have the 4.3 V6. Its a great motor. tough as hell. But just not quite enough power for a full size truck. But hey, you take what you can get, right?

Reliable And Dependable Truck — Very good a reliable truck. Very little problems, Just normal maintenance and TLC, keep this 2003 going. I guess my biggest problem was rear brakes, had to brake calipers. But the truck on has 71.000 miles. Would buy another one.

03 Sierra Slt — I havent had to do many repairs, however my Transfer Case Control Module is acting up now @ 120,000 miles. I bought this truck more for the awesome SLT package it has-heated leather seats, BOSE sound system, fog lights... Its a great truck, nice power,unfortunately the body parts(heated signal mirrors) are NOT cheap.

The colour, but acceptable!

Gmc! The Only Way To Go! — Big ass tough truck! One of the best vehicles I ever had. Certainly the newest. I'd like to paint it though...right now it's white, which I don't care for. I want to paint it black...All the power when you want and when you need it! Sure fuel is sky-rocketing, but with a 4.8 litre Vortec V-8, it's worth it!

My Truck — Love my truck, it can go through anything. Has over 50k on it. Only have had a few problems nothing serious. It's actually not bad on gas and it was a pretty cheap truck I guess you could say. It's so fun to put the pedal to the medal in it.
