"We bought this truck second hand in 2004 it had 42000 miles on it. Today it has 305499 miles on it and we still love it. we go back to Louisiana at least 3 times a month sometimes more, which is a three hour drive one way for us. We have never had any trouble with the engine. I do a oil change every 4000 miles with synth oil. Do regular upkeep on it, I am about to have it repainted to pass on to my grandson. My goal is to buy another GMC truck!!"
"I love this truck, I get tired before it does and that is more than I can say about that 01 Dodge I had. This truck is great. Its tuff, dependable and has more than enough power at 300HP 355FTLB Torq. Not to mention Im avg. 13.5MPG city/hwy mix driving with some small towing. Under 3klbs. This truck is just incredible. Im usually lyre about new trucks as in anything newer than 85, this one is certainly changing my mind.
I give it an overall rating of 8/10. All specs say the truck has a 34 gallon tank but when I ran it almost completely out It would only hold 22. SO lil confused on that.
The only bad thing I have found about this truck, in general, and its something I liked about the dodge, is the adjustable cup holders."
"Excellent truck for towing/hauling. Use to tow 8,500 lb. 5th wheel camper. Have made engine modifications to increase hp. about 50 to 60. Due to low rear gear (4:10) it does not get good mileage, but will due 8.5 to 9.5 IF you do not go over 70 mph! I have had many good compliments on the truck over the years, (bought new 9/04)."
"Have had this truck since 2003, purchased it used with 51,000 miles. Now has 278,000 and runs like the day I purchased it. Has the 5.3 and plenty of power with an avg rating of 20 mpg. The only thing I have done in terms of major repairs, is the fuel pump, twice..Not bad considering my driving habits..Always buy GM products but don't like the faulty abs system , my wife has a 2002 Tahoe, abs problems since 50,000 miles...Had it fixed at dealer, had it fixed again by a electrical guy on eBay, still abs won't work properly...My truck's abs works but light has been on since 80,000 miles...Overall I couldn't ask for a better truck and exceptional value..."
