1986 GMC Sierra 1500 305 4bbl from North America
Fuel pump went at 425,500kms.
Seats worn when bought..
A few cross members rusted out.
Needed body work done to it from harsh Nova Scotia winters.
Needs oil pan (it's rusted out); it was like that when I bought it.
Leaking oil and transmission fluid (but I'm sure it's just some old gaskets).
The passenger side suspension brace is worn out and could be dangerous (but I'm selling the truck anyway).
High and low beam switch at 425,000kms.
Reverse light at 425,000kms.
Stereo was blown, so I replaced it at 425,000kms.
All speakers were blown at 425,000kms.
Passenger and driver side window seals went at 425,000kms.
Fuel filter at 425,500kms.
I guess I can't complain too much about the truck needing stuff, seeing that it has over 426,000kms... but on the good side, parts for this truck can be fairly cheap, and you can find just about anything at your local junk yard.
The truck accelerates pretty good with the 3 speed auto, and sometimes will break loose from a stop, but struggles for highway driving, and tops out around 150kmh. It also isn't too easy on fuel either.
This was my first road legal truck, but I wish I'd gotten a 4x4, but this is a great truck if you look after it. Not too many vehicle's will last 426,000kms with the original engine!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
