99k miles and still kicking!

I have recently hit 99,000 miles on my 2004 GMC Sierra 1500. I have the 4.8L V-8 and have no complaints. I change my oil every 3,000 miles, and get an alignment every year or so. I recently put new tires on it, and it performs even better. I am getting 16MPG on it. However, I am getting a shudder between 1st and 2nd gears. Sometimes it slams into gear. Otherwise, nothing is wrong with it. I have decided that I will drive this truck until the frame falls apart.

2004 5.3L GMC Sierra SLT 1500 Ext Cab w/ Tow Pack

After 3.5 Years and about 30k miles I've had no break downs and it drives with the same power as when it was new. Passing and cornering like a sports car, beats the Dodge and Ford on handling in my opinion. Not to mention 2004 apears to be keeping its value much better too. Interior is rugged and comfortable, nothing has broken or started to wear yet.

Awesome Truck

This truck iis awesome. It has the positracion rear and 4 wheel drive so I I am sure it will perform well in snow or mud. Has 5.3 engine with Automatic and gets better fuel mpg than my toyota 4 Runner that I traded in. The GMC had a clunking sound when shifting into reverse and when pulling out from a stop. I found there was a TSB from GMC concerning this issue and Country Dodge took care of it for me. Truck has a fair amount of squeaky creaky interior panels but it does not bother me. Only two things I found that I dislike. First one is the wiper arms can only be lifted a few inches off the windshield. I normally leave my wipers sticking up in the air when I have to park outside in the snow and ice to prevent them from getting frozen to the window. Second one is the Center AC vent in the dash cannot be turned off. If rear passenger are cold and I am hot this is a problem because I cant stop the airflow from that vent. Overall though it is a great truck and drives great! I love it!

This auto 4 speed GMC is super fast!!! I liked to pull up next to those kids in their small import cars (the ones that sound like chainsaws) and blow them off the line. Ha, looks like a fancy spoiler and a loud muffler is no match for a GM 5.3L V8. Be careful, don't smoke the tires!

Overall best truck I've ever owned

I don't think that there is anything that I couldn't do with my 2500 HD Diesel. I use it in a mixed environment, part city/part farm, and it performs expertly in both arenas. So far the ONLY gripe I have is that the sealed hub assembly has failed on the truck at 63K miles and I wonder why G.M. would put such a poor quality part, (sealed so that it can't be serviced to prevent the failure) into such an expensive truck. When I complained to the service writer that it the bearing failed at only 63K miles he said that he sees some that fail in 20-30K miles! G.M. you better start paying attention. Toyota and Nissan are building bigger and bigger trucks and when they decide to build a truck that matches the 2500 HD with the reliability of their products.. Well I think I have drawn a big you a big enough picture.

Bought it used in 2015 with 200000 miles. Still in very good condition for its age. A little rust on Cab but I live in North East where salt on the road is a way of life. Cluster Gauge problems and front tire vibration but at 200,000 can't complain
