Summary:

Overall a good performer, other than the poor MPG

Faults:

2003 GMC Transfer Case problem experienced -- evidently a "known" GMC problem with a GMC "fix" identified per TSB, but no recall or other notifications sent to owners.

General Comments:

This is second 'major' problem that GMC had prior knowledge of existing defects and failed to notify owners.

1. Instrument panel had faulty odometer.

2. GMC transfer case internal pump clip problem.

This is extremely costly and very disappointing from a loyal GMC/Chevrolet customer's point of view.

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