    Overall Dependable And Comfortable Truck — Comfortable ride for a truck. Seats are comfortable. Extended cab not too cramped. We've owned our 05 for about 8 years. It's been very mechanically dependable, Infrequent trips to the shop, and those have not been expensive. We only have the 2 wheel drive, but it's very adequate for what we use it for (mainly brush hauling, or transporting cargo). Doesn't do bad in our Illinois snow.

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

    Pros: Dependable truck. Comfortable ride

    Cons: Tends to start to rust in wheel wells around year 10.  Typical GM bottoms on radio controls start to wear off after just a few years. O2 sensor issues common on this model.

    Wont Buy Another One — basically has no balls to it above avg build exterior color is plain and interior is boring fuel mileage is decent for a truck truck is decent to drive, but only in dry conditions does it handle well.. in slick conditions it becomes a drifter

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: manual transmission

    Cons: 4.3L V6 engine

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Powerful, reliable, comfortable.

    Cons: Had some trouble with the transfer case over the life of the vehicle.  No problems now.

    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!

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

    Pros: the look

    Cons: the maintenance (always fixing something)

    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.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: The feel and the smoothness of the drive

    Cons: Cheap stock stereo

    Never Going Back To A Car For A Daily Driver If I Can Help It — * Performance - acceleration, braking, handling are what you expect from a truck * Build Quality - 85,000 miles and no rattles or strang noises to report, transmission internal part replaced under warranty * Appearance - Interior is a bit dated by todays standard, but the seats rock and the exterior is classic GMC goodness. * Cost of Ownership - Gas mileage not to bad, 15-16 in town and 18-23 on the open road. * Fun Factor - its has its moments of joy.

    Pros: Trucks Own the Road

    Cons: Hard to Park in the City

    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.)

    Pros: Comfortable Seating Positions, Power and visibility.

    Cons: I have some wind noise....but nothing major.
