Good Truck by Nes on 02/18/2008. Trim: 1998 GMC Sierra C/K 1500 Ext. Cab 8-ft. Bed 4WD, Owned 4 years.
Pros: Truely I do love this truck. It's comfortable for 8hr drives, maybe not in the back bench seats, but still not bad. The ride is smooth. It's nice and wide, nice and long--if you're looking for that. It's high but not too high.
Cons: Bought with 74,000miles, 4 years ago. At 90,000 the transmission needed to be rebuilt. Around 100,000 the inside driver door handle broke. The nob for the head lights, and stereo tuner fell off, but a lil glue and all good. The glove compartment you have to slam to close. You have to beat on the center counsel to get it open. The tailgate doesn't latch properly, sometimes you think its closed but drive over a bump and you hear your tailgate fall down. The outside drivers door handle is cracked and will need to replaced. My locks freeze often. I wish I had remote keyless entry, or should get it installed. The ABS doesn't work so I just do it the old way and pulse my breaks.
Overall review: With the cons list so long you may wonder why I love this truck. I've got 140,000miles on it now. The rebuilt transmission is good. Since I don't know what the previous owner did with the truck, I blame them for the transmission going at 90,000. It doesn't have fast pickup but once you got it going the pickup is fine, like on the highway which is true with every heavy vehicle. Should you get it I say yeah, just know its big, and all the handles and latches will break.
