2002 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE 4WD Extended Cab SBReview
A Reliable And Tough First Truck. — My first choice was a diesel but didnt have enough money so i contently settled with a 1500 V8. Unfortunately i could only find the 4.8l engine where as I would have liked to be driving the 5.3 1500. Having said that, I am rather pleased with the toughness and power of my 4.8, as i originally used it for landscaping (trailer towing, hauling rocks-exceeding the limit a bit but with no problem at all, ripping out bushes and smaller trees, and putting it through some mud).
Pros: Good handling, interior in great shape, acceptional acceleration and versatility.
Cons: Previous owner showed little pride in maintaining the truck. 100k+ miles, mediocre exhaust, engine could use fine tuning (expensive), rusty under body, the only two repairs emptied my wallet.
2002 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali AWD Extended Cab SBReview
Arare Truck That Is Soon To Be A Collectable! — I was impressed with all areas of performance with this truck. Build quality is supreme. it is a very stylish truck. I would definitely buy another truck with Quadrasteer and AWD. It is a true luxury vehicle that is a pleasure to tow a trailer.
Primary Use: Family transportation
Pros: Great turning radius and very luxurious ride with Quadrasteer and AWD
Cons: gas mileage could be better
2002 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT 4WD Extended Cab SBReview
Best Truck I Have Ever Owned — i have the 5.3 v8 and have yet to hook on to a load it can't pull. 16 foot stock trailer with 4 horses and it acts like nothing is back there. It has good take off power that not many big truck have. Mpg wise with a lead foot around 16 - 18 mixture of highway and city. I put 300+ miles a week on it and it still runs as good as the day i bought it.
Primary Use: Commuting to work
Pros: Nice for a big truck
Cons: Cosmetic issues are expesive to repair
2002 GMC Sierra 1500 Work Truck Standard Cab LBReview
Great Work Truck, One Of The Best Ive Seen, It Goes Anywhere And Its A 2wd, Through Snow And Sleet — This truck is a torque monster...and handled amazingly. Very little body roll, and it was great for tight roads. The long bed made it look good and i redid some things on the interior to bring it to life. The truck all in all is something to buy to haul stuff, i use it to haul steel to the scrap yard.
Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
Pros: No body roll, and great on gas.
Cons: Not to fast

2002 Gmc Sierra — performance is amazing, has a knock off flowmaster muffler, has 20" DIP wheels, runs a 16 second quarter mile down the drag strip, i love this truck it is amazing, only complaint is the transmission truck has just over 100,000 miles and is on its third tranny
Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

My Favorite Dinosaur —
After a long wait my dad bought this truck in 2003. I was in high school at the time and I thought it was awesome: it had a CD player, room for 4 of my friends via the useful quasi-rear-doors, RWD, and a V8 engine. Before the Sierra I had only experienced a series of weak-to-mediocre performers, and while this truck was far from fast, there is something to be said about that HUUURRRRRRR sound when you plant your foot and feel yourself flatten slightly against the seat. The Sierra isn't all V8 fun. It needed a new transmission at 75k (too much HURR?), it's a gas guzzler, parking it requires some kind of clairvoyance, and the interior is atrocious. All the cheap, ill-fitted plastic buzzes at highway speeds, and my dad uses panel gaps to store business cards in. Then there's the handling. The driver is completely isolated from what's going on down there. This is fine on a worksite, or on dirt, or even on a country road listening to CCR and not paying attention to anything anyway. But for day-to-day driving the vague steering and floaty, lurching suspension get annoying, like a fat man on a unicycle made of marshmallows. This may be less of an argument against the Sierra as against full-size trucks in general. They're just not very good as daily transportation, and even small trucks can do most work tasks nearly as well as a half-ton. I mean, the Japanese are an extremely productive people, and they get by with tiny 660cc pickup trucks! Then again, few Japanese know the joy of pointing a GMC in vaguely the right direction, mashing the gas pedal, and... HHUUUUUUURRRRRRRRRRRR
Pros: V8, lots of room
Cons: Cheap interior, indifferent build quality, sloppy handling
2002 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE Standard Cab LBReview
Gmc 2002 — my green machine, has great get up and a nice sound system. it is great on highway gas mileage but driving around town is a killer. sometimes with the slide system it has on the inside, makes it a pain to deal with while trying to pick up speed, cuz you have to wait until the truck feels it has enough tracking on the tires before you can get back to normal driving.
Pros: great accelaration and good hwy gas mileage, power everything
Cons: tire tracking and sliding device
2002 GMC Sierra 1500 HT 4WD Standard Cab SBReview
Love It. — The performance is great. It has great acceleration(its a V8). It runs smoothly. It looks great. Its a yellow, step-side. The gas mileage isn't great. The cost of ownership is not bad, except for the gas prices, but this not the fault of the car. Its a great truck.
Pros: It's great in pretty much every aspect.
Cons: Gas mileage
