Resources for the Repair and Maintenance of your GMC
It is common for the fuel level sensor in the fuel tank read the fuel level incorrectly. The sensor must be replaced to correct the condition. Our technicians recommend having the complete fuel pump module replaced on high mileage vehicles.
On vehicles equipped with rear air springs, the air compressor may fail causing the rear suspension to sit low.
The HVAC blower motor may stop working at one or more speeds due to a faulty blower motor resistor block. Our technicians recommend to confirm the resistor is at fault by first checking the operation of the switch.
Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.
The outside door handles are prone to breaking—all doors are affected by this condition.

GMC Owners' Reviews
Doing maintance like changing spark plugs, air filter, or any thing under the hood is next to inpossible. There is NO room in the engine compartment it even get your hand into it, much like see what your doing. The designer of this vehical was a moron.
I have owned my 2005 for 6 years and have put 134,000 miles on it, it now has 154,000. It has been very reliable. The biggest problems have been headlight bulb replacements, dashboard gauges failing and the damper controls for the driver side is blowing heat all the time.
But overall, it has not left me stranded. 3 sets of tires, 3 set of front brakes. My plan is to drive to at least 200,000 miles.
This car is a piece of junk. I was stuck on the side of the road with my 3 children in the car with a broken 35R clutch wave plate. Had to have the transmission rebuilt at 48k miles. The car had been driven less than 10k miles a year for 5.5 years. It is just 6 months out of warranty and GM is not honoring it. I would not recommend this car to anyone.
THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH THIS VEHICLE. CLASS ACTION LAW SUIT???
I bought this truck new. Put the first set of front brakes on at 95k miles. Back brakes at 100k. Had a couple of glitchy electrical issues in 9 years, nothing serious. For some reason it eats lights. Have changed probably 6 head lights, and just as many brake, turning and running lights. Just hit 140k and had to take it to the garage for the first time. Totally my fault. Plugged oil return ports. Have heard people complain about the 3.5 5cyl. but I tow a trailer with a bobcat skidsteer every day accounting for probably 100 of the 140k miles on my truck and have never had an issue with power and still get great gas mileage. I love this truck.
I have owned my SUV since 2006 bought it with 15000 on it. Just roled over to 106K and my front passenger speaker took a crap. Can you even replace these speakers without messing up the stereo system in general. A/C got stuck on heat just on the driver side. So now truck has no heat but its a Florida truck anyway. Who needs heat? Everything else on this vehicle works great. I would definately buy another one.
