2000 GMC Sierra SLE 6.0L Vortec from North America
This truck does not make the grade
Transfer case burned up at 97,000 miles. The mechanic who rebuilt it said that the transfer case gears are always in motion, whether you're in 4-wheel drive or not, and that some lever inside beat a hole in the transfer case cover which then leaked all the fluid and it burned up. He said he sees this a lot. I'm wondering if anyone else has seen this?
I have put a lot of miles on this truck, but have followed the owner's manual maintenance schedule religiously and I feel that a $2,200 problem on a three year old truck is ridiculous.
I am a general contractor and I take care of all my tools and they either last or I look for a new supplier. This tool did not last.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

Recently I got the "service 4wd" message on the dashboard, I wonder if it's going to be a similar problem.

My 2000 Sierra transfer case locked on the interstate yesterday with 62,000 miles.
It took out my transmission and drive shaft.
