Gmc Sierra — GMC is simply builds the best trucks. Outstanding performance and handling. Gets better than average gas mileage. This truck can go through anything and keep on going. I will have this truck for many years and continue to buy GMC trucks.

Great Rig For Towing, Hauling And Daily Driving. — This truck primarily used in a farm setting. Being used to haul hay, check fence and drive off road. It also makes 2 trips from KY to FLA for vacations twice a year and it performs like it should in both roles. Good durability across streams, rocks and muddy conditions. Great road manners and decent mileage for a cew cab. I got rid of my 2007 Nissan 4X4 Crew for a more reliable 2005 GMC.

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

A Member Of The Family — I teared up when I put a for sale sign on it recently. I love this truck. Before this one, I had a '97 regular cab Sierra. When I started having kids, we bought the extended cab and this truck has been a part of our family. We've taken it 120,000+ miles and I'm certain it has at least another 240,000 in it.

Great Vehicle For The Price If You're Not Too Worried About Gas — Love the way this truck rides, handles and drives all together. The gas is just a bit of a stickler. Ohter than that the brakes are phenomenal and you forget you are driving its so nice. It's just you and the road.

That's It!!! — good pick-up but high on maintenance after only 106000 km but will still keep it for a long while!!want to get a body lift and raise the suspension and then add some mud tires and finally get a real box cover in fiberglass!

Pros

Excellent everything - both inside the cabin and out

Cons

slightly less engine performance than expected on V8 engines - dont think about getting the V6

Gmc Sierra De Madre Slt - A Home Office Away From Your Home Office — A solid truck with just performance lacking on the V8 5.8L engine - dont even THINK about getting the V6 thinking your going to save on gas - with traffic your not going to be flying anyway. Everything else on this truck, from looks (when its not all banged up) to interior comfort is very high, as all SLT GMC models are - much better in these "older" sierra classic models than the newer ones.

Pros

It's not built by FORD, Chrysler, or an import.

Cons

I haven't lifted it high enough yet

35

Princess' Truck — It's not high enough, the midgets can still get in it. It doesn't go fast enough for my liking. Being a giant like myself, there isn't much room in any vehicles but I'd have to say that this truck has the most in its class. That's why I bought it.
