1999 GMC Sierra SL 4.3 V6 from North America
I'll try a Ford F-150 next time
Lousy mileage at approximately 16.5 avg
My brakes pulsing like crazy at 22.5k miles.
I have just had to replace fuel injectors 1, 2, and 3. Truck was running fine on Saturday, and on Monday morning, it was running on 3 cylinders.
No GM warranty, but the Calif Air Resources Board (News Release 03-=05 dated 2/11/03) has forced GM to provide extended warranty coverage for Calif emissions trucks.
I had the exact same problem described, but no extended warranty. What about the rest of us???
Reasonable nice basic truck, but the reliability of the GM "Professional Grade" leaves a lot to be desired.
I don't put a lot of miles on a truck and it isn't worked hard at all, so I expect a high degree of reliability.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Transmission went out at 100,000 miles. ABS went out at 90,000 miles. Power window went out at 85,000 miles. Gas gauge went out at 70,000 miles. Power mirror, and battery went at 79,000 miles. Four wheel switch just went at 115,000. Backwindow leeks, and theres some unexplained vibration in the rear end.
When I spoke to a mechanic at the dealer, HE LAUGHED!I told him I was thinking about buying a Ford next time. He said "don't do that","just buy a Toyota like me." He went on to say how he had 250,000 miles, and all he'd done was change the oil.
Toyota Tacoma costs $5,000 less than my Sierra new. Same options, same miles, the Tacoma has a $4,000 greater trade in value! Would I buy another GM! I HIGHLY DOUBT IT!
