1999 GMC Sierra K3500 6.5 turbo diesel from North America
3000 miles had a main seal leak, took to original dealer.. fixed it. Since then, it has had 3 new clutches (I have owned nothing but manual transmission for 35 years.. not an issue of don't know how to clutch or shift). Had an electrical problem, 5 different times in the shop for fuel system issues.. and not the notorious booster pump issues, blew out front tire at 12,000 miles, rear blew out at 18,000.. and I mean blew.. like ripped.. no warranty on the tires. The topper? need a new trasmission... it also has a fuel leak and an antifreeze leak somewhere... a piece? ya I would say so. I bought this truck because I was so totally pleased with my 1994.. still have it. Same truck, except the 94 is a crew cab.. repairs on it in 170,000 miles? 2 sets of brakes.. yep that is it.. my 94 hauls anything, the 99? put a trailer behind it and empty you would think you are pulling a train. The dealer here does not help either.. every warranty repair had to call GM corporate to get them the dealer to "admit" it was warranty.. bye GM...
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
