General Comments:

This has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. It replaced a 1976 Chevy Malibu that I drove 330,000 miles. My GMC has the original engine (never been into it) and transmission. I have changed the transmission fluid 4 times in all these years. It still gets about 19-20 mpg. A/C still works great and the thing still has factory muffler on it. (does need to be replace though.) Now at 350,000+ miles still take it on long trips with no worry. It has never left me on the road yet. Drive it about 100 miles every day.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
