One of the best trucks on the road
Just normal maintenance.
Plus serpentine belt.
I have the 1500 SLE Extended Cab. Mine is an early three door model.
I am from Wyoming, and the truck is used for three things, on dirt and gravel roads, around town city driving, and on highway. And it does all three wonderfully.
The Z71 package makes the truck great off road. The ride and handling is superior to other trucks. The Vortec 5300 is a great engine with a lot of power and outstanding fullsize V8 fuel economy.
The transmission is not the smoothest shifting, but is the strongest and most versatile I have had in a truck.
It does not have much wind noise like other trucks.
The bucket seats are comfortable.
I am would buy another GMC in a heartbeat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
