Where Do I Begin...
Jan 05/04 Block Heater blew the breaker in my garage (Dealer said there was something wrong with breaker) 4971KMS.
Jan 15/04 Block Heater kept blowing the breaker in my garage (Dealer tested and said something wrong with plug in in garage) 5123KMS.
Jan 11/05 Block Heater lit on fire after plugging in (Dealer found Block Heater leaking coolant on block heater cord causing it to short) 28,295KMS.
At the same time, Dealer talked me into having a Fall Check-Up done which ended up costing me $102.53 and all they did was an Oil Change.
April 21/05 Front Brakes (Rotors and Pads) needed replacing. NOT COVERED under Warranty! $275 32,675KMS.

April 07/06 Rebuilt Drive Shaft, Replace 4 U Joint, 2 Ball Joints Replaced, Replaced Rear Transmission Output Seal, Replaced Rear Leaf Springs. All work done under warranty 60,374KMS.
October 18/06 Air Conditioning worked occasionally. In order to engage Air Conditioning I would have to rev my truck to 4000 RPM'S, then compressor would engage. (Dealer tested air, no problems) Returned to dealer 5 minutes after picking vehicle up with same problems. Problem fixed under warranty 73,494KMS.
November 20/06 All four new tires. $500 Walmart Special 75,219KMS.
Jan 16/07 Water pump repaired. Dealer also informed me my oil cooler lines are leaking. Water pump covered, Oil Lines are NOT, quoted $400 for repair. 79,924KMS.
Ahhhh, finally I got through all the problems.
-Well, the truck had a box to haul stuff...
-4.3L engine had enough power, sometimes to much.
-After-market Command start I had installed, Highly recommended.
- Gas mileage 13-17MPG including highway driving.
- Headlights seem to eat bulbs, 3rd set of headlight bulbs.
- 3rd Seat is useless.
- 3rd Door does nothing, but rattle.
- Seats are not comfortable.
- GM Dealers are terrible to deal with.
- Reliability for a brand new vehicle.
All in all, I am not satisfied with the truck or GM for that matter. My sister had leased the same truck, at around the same time and had nothing, but problems with hers.
I am starting to think GM treats there customers as if they were bad dreams, close there eyes and hope they go away, Well, you win!!! I AM NOT COMING BACK!!!
