2000 GMC Sierra SLE 4.8L V8 from North America
I will never buy another GM product
- Fuel Pressure Regulator was faulty.
- Faulty Alternators (I'm on the third one now)
- Fuel Level Gauge quit working.
- ABS kicks in on the slightest bumps.
- Heater quit working (bad heater core)
- Dash rattles horribly.
- Transmission starting to very loudly and violently downshift.
- An electrical short in a wiring harness kept draining the battery leaving me stranded.
- Seats are comfy plush for quick trips, but not comfortable on long trips.
- Numerous recalls.
This is the absolute worst car I've ever owned. It will traded in very shortly for a new Toyota Tacoma.
I'm amazed at how many problems I've had with this vehicle. I've always owned foreign vehicles before this, but I wanted to "buy American" this time. Wow, what a mistake... never again.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

I currently own a 2001 GM car and a 2003 GMC Envoy. Both are close to 60,000 miles and neither has ever had a single problem of any kind. My family members also own Ford Rangers and F-150's. None of them has ever had a single problem either. My last Ranger went well over 60,000 miles before I traded it, and it never had so much as a brake job. In fact, It had a TOTAL of ONE BATTERY and ONE SET OF TIRES replaced. That's it. On the other hand, our 2 imports were NOTHING but TROUBLE. They cost more in repairs than all 30 or so of our domestic vehicles COMBINED. I know current domestics are even more reliable than those built in earlier years. I'd think long and hard before buying a more poorly made import over a solid, well-built Ford, Chevy or Dodge truck.
I own a 2000 GMC Sierra 4.8 liter and will probably never buy another brand. This vehicle has 130,000 miles and have not had one of those problems. I live on a dirt road and it's about a mile long washboard and my GMC doesn't rattle a bit.
I don't know what you're driving.
