Will never get rid of this truck!!!

GMC has hit the nail on the head with this one. Great truck, comfortable interior, powerful duramax diesel and stunning looks. This is far and away the best vehicle I have ever owned and will drive it til the engine goes or the wheels fall off, i am betting on the latter. Bought truck used with 88k miles and now have over 140k. Only issue that I have heard from several people is the torque converter lugs cracking. In a truck this powerful it has to be braced. Had mine replaced after it craked at 105k, been rocking on ever since. 4x4 is amazing and can go anywhere or pull anything. good leg room in back seat, heated seats are nice. GMC duramax is the only truck i will ever purchase.

-This windy input is based on some years of owning various makes & types of trucks & 4x4s prior to purchasing my 2004 GMC w/22K miles in 03/2005 (paid ~$20K & new sticker was $33K)... -7-years later, my base-model non-HD 2500 4x4 has 156K mi. Its aerodynamic design with ext. cab (doubles as a toolbox), LQ-6.0L, & 4L80 trans. has endured workloads that have stranded other trucks while averaging great 3/4-ton truck economy (city-15mpg & hwy-20mpg). Unloaded, the truck effortlessly spins its tires & refuses to downshift while maintaining a ~70mph cruise on hilly hwys. -Routine maintenance & upgrades on this truck can be easily & economically performed by average wrench-turners w/reasonable computer literacy; added to the fact that the GM Vortec & LS-type engines have only improved, adding to increased 2nd-hand & aftermarket support. -Aesthetically, I'm not crazy about the under-bite front bumper or needing fender flares for slightly wider wheels & tires, my cloth seats still look great, but my console lid is now a lift-off.... -I've replaced the recalled gauge cluster & steering shaft. I've also replaced the front hub assys, power steering pump, rear-diff seal, water pump, & crank sensor. To improve fuel mileage, I lessened the intake & exhaust restrictions, lowered the engine & trans temps, upgraded coil packs, & still perform routine maintenance. -From my perspective, automotive wear & tear is so subjective that the true measure of reliability is predictability of failure (not leaving you stranded), coupled with, ease & economy of repair. On that note, it has been my experience that using GM & AC Delco parts will minimize the frequency of repair(s), but bang-for-the-buck, I count myself lucky to own such a great vehicle that doubles flawlessly as a 4wd truck!

Contacted dealership on a sunday thru email and I have never ever received a response. They must not want to sell a vehicle very badly.
