Summary:

Good investment. Will buy GMC again

Faults:

Normal wear and tear at 275000 miles, balljoint, tie rods, brakes, normal stuff. Tuneups.

Leather seats are wore and have some tears, but other than, the truck is in good shape.

General Comments:

The truck has lots of power, and good towing capacity.

I travel a lot for work, and the truck handles great on the highway.

The interior is roomy and relaxing to travel in, the truck has great heat for the cold times, but it blows warm air all the time.

Besides the little stuff, the truck is not nickel and dimeing me to death, and I have got my money's worth out of this truck, and would gladly pass it on for someone else to enjoy when I am ready for a new one.

Summary:

Great

Faults:

I had to put in a new shift kit and clutch. The shift kit was only about $300. This was what had to be done to fix the hard shifting in low gears. New clutch was about $600. If yours shifts hard, the sooner you fix it, the less it will cost you.
