"This Sierra rides better than my cars. It's been great for hauling things back & forth to NY, I am working there on a temporary basis. It fits my lifestyle well for canoeing, Kayaking, biking, hauling my zero turn lawnmower and the occasional home project. It's been great in the snow in upstate NY. Never had any issues starting it. Completely dependable. I'd never be without a full size truck again. I owned an S10 prior and had 240,000 miles in the inline 4 when I bought the Sierra. I figured if that GM 4 banger could last that long I'd get a full size and it should do better. I did consider the Toyota Tacoma and am glad I bought the Sierra, that bed size has been very handy. I'll never go back to a small truck again. My next truck is going to be a Sierra."
"The one thing I would change on it is the engine. The V8 available for this year got about 6 mpg better mileage on average. Otherwise the V6 has been more than adequate for all my needs. I do a lot of highway travel as well as in town, and am happy with comfort, performance and ride. I do not plan to replace this truck any time soon \, at least before it reaches 300,000 miles. Would I buy it again. You bet, in a heartbeat."
"Smooth riding, plenty of power, turns on a dime ( unlike last truck) I pull a fairly heavy boat/ trailer, can't hardly tell it's behind me. Gas mileage is decent in the city and excellent on the highway. And with the flex fuel option, whenever gas gets expensive, I switch to good old "corn oil"......big savings!
Best part........truck is gorgeous! Always get comments about what a " good looking truck I have" :)"
"About 5 years before changing a light. Did all the oil change and other maintence on the truck and never had any trouble out of it.4 years before change in battier. Still on its 2nd battier. I buying another one soon. This truck went hunting in the winter and pull a 18 ft bass boat every summer all summer."
