Summary:

An amazing reliable truck!

Faults:

This 2000 GMC Sierra has been the BEST truck I have ever owned... over 380,000 kilometers on it and it's always been reliable.

It's a farm truck, so it NEVER got any regular maintenance. It tows hay equipment to and from the fields. Always has torches, generator, welder and a 500 pound tool box on it.

As far as regular wear and tear, I'm happy. I've put about 4 fuel pumps on it. Big whoop, that's a regular for these trucks... and at 360 000 the tranny blew.

My kids used this truck and were very hard on it. I use it for more of a tractor than a truck. And it's a very excellent machine.

I've done the brakes three times, and it just got its first front end suspension part! 4wd ALWAYS works. This truck is TOUGH!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
