My first GM truck went 150,000 miles with only minor repairs(1995 Cheyenne) It is still on the road today! My 2008 GMC 4x4 has had one issue after another. Stuck active fuel management lifter=$3000, bad power windows switch on all doors but Driver, Bad Power mirror switch on the driver, Bad break light switch. The Service Traction Control light comes on at random. The driver side rear door fills with water. The dash has cracked in 2 places and I have had it for 25000 miles. I bought what I thought was a good used truck and have 100000 miles on it now, but this will be my last GM purchase.
I owned this truck since Jan 2008. Now time for an upgraded pickup have enjoyed GM products and my Sierra with 134,000 miles never gave me problems will miss this truck done nothing but minor things.
its a great truck but only one problem! the wires for the headlights on the sierra always get shorts in them and everytime u get going down the road one is out!!!
I had the truck less than a yr and the transmission went out. A yr later the vent valve assembly and solenoid had to be replaced and moved and it was under warranty and still cost me over $300 to get it fixed. Now 2 yrs later the check engine light comes on and guess what its the vent valve assembly and solenoid again. Wow Chevy/GMC really use to mean quality but really not thinking so now. Previous 4 trucks were all Dodges and never had any issues!!! Looks like I'll be going back to the RAM soon!!!!
Transmission had to be rebuilt at 10K and again at 20K miles. No known "fix" for the problem. This truck is pampered and gets only 7K miles a year of driving. Professional Grade... Not hardly.
love this truck no problems!!!
