Great Truck

My GMC is the most reliable truck I've ever had, I will always buy my GMC sierras from cars.com now. My interior was really clean and comfortable plus my truck had been recently painted

HD version is ideal family/work hauler

This truck handles everything I've thrown at it. Haul a ton and a half of sand, concrete, and bricks? No problem. Pull a skip loader while hauling that load? Sure. The 1500HD has a strong 6.0 V8 and stiff suspension along with a 4.10 rear end that isn't great on gas, but huge on payload. The crew cab I bought has plenty of room for five, with a sixth seat up front that I've used only once (when I was in a bind). I love that it has a full 6.5' bed as well even with the crew cab. Interior is pretty standard GM truck, and the ride is bumpy when the back is empty. It rides much smoother with 1000 pounds of stuff in the back. If you need to move lots of stuff or just want something a little bigger than a standard half ton, I highly recommend the HD.

I owned my 2005 GMC Sierra Crew for about 18 months and really didn't want to get rid of it, but it was just too much every time I hit the gas pump. Everything was very well put together, the truck would pull anything and everything I needed to pull, the ride was comfortable and it was overall a great truck.

I purchased the black 2005 GMC Sierra 1500 Denali. This review is based on about six months of ownership. I used to have a red 2001 Chevy Silverado LT. I wanted to get all the options on the Chevy, plus more. The Denali is loaded with all kinds of goodies: heated, leather seats, sunroof, power retractable side rear view mirrors, etc. The leather seats become uncomfortable after awhile. The black finish is difficult to keep clean and it doesn't look particularly good in bright sunlight, but it's super cool otherwise, especially at night. Radio controls on the steering wheel are really nice, DVD player, 6 CD player plus a single CD player offers playing time during long voyages. I still haven't got used to the climate control. I wish they hadn't "improved" it. The FM radio brings in all kinds of stations. It gets decent mileage for a truck (the gas mileage calculator says I average about 14.5) and runs good, although a little rough. The all-wheel-drive transmission is smooth, but I'm waiting to see how it handles a northern Indiana winter. I haven't seen any other truck like it in my area, much better than the equivalent Dodge, Ford, Toyota, Nissan, or Honda. It's equipped with OnStar and satellite radio, but I don't have those options activated.

Let's see constant brake issues. 1st was @ 4000 miles 3 sets of front pads by 40000/rotors shot. Tranny blew at 30000. Bad driveshaft at 31000. Suspension makes all kinds of creaking and clunking noises - dealer says thats normal. AC dash problems at 10000. I don't tow anything just drive to and from work.
