Pros: "Reliable, Comfortable, Economical, A Workhorse"

Cons: "None I know of"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Quieter and More Comfortable than a Ford or Dodge. This one's a 4WD. It Pulls Great with the (5.7 L.) 350 V8 and the 4L85E Tranny (Ex. TH700L). Gets the same gas mileage with Hay bales in bed and a 4 Horse Trailer behind, as a Ford does running Empty!"

"This truck has been the best vehicle I have owned. Own a Saturn Vue with a 4 cyl. I get better gas mileage with the Sierra's V6 Vortek with a 5 speed manual. Cannot say enough about it. 5 years ago put it on non-op and blocked it. Still started up beautifully and purred like a kitten. Sorry I ever sold it!"

"I have 410,000 hard miles I don't give this truck a break loaded all the time and pulling 16' trailers and it refuses to quit. I don't think there can be another truck that can take that much and still keeps going. I am a self employed welder/fabricator so I am all over the place. I did rebuild the transmission back around 230,000 cause I pulled my trailer in over drive. And other than the normal problems it seems a lot of people have just minor stuff simply unbelievable truck."

Pros: "Drives great, Has LOTS of power! Very comfortable"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"It is great to get around in, especially in town or busy traffic. Very comfortable...Air works better than any new vehicle I've been in. I bought this truck with 27,000 miles on it, I've put 103,000 miles on it, very fun to drive! I suppose some day I'll have to trade this truck in, but not for a very long time! That will be a very sad day!"
