TRUCK PURCHASE
"Great working/running truck. Loaded a truck bed camper and drove the Denali Highway for moose hunting. No issues so far. SLE package is nice which offers electric windows and cruise."

Look close and ask a lot of questions on this one
"Look at the entire truck and don't leave anything unchecked. HVAC, all fluid levels and definitely this means the radiator, tires and suspension, electrical system, etc. The air cleaner was completely stopped up and was nonfunctional. Hadn't been changed out in years. There was more wrong with this vehicle when we were looking at it than there was right. I will say though the engine was the best thing about the truck. Diesel engines can go several hundred thousand miles if well maintained, so this one had a lot of life left in it. The interior was okay except for the center console, which was screwed shut at the lid."
Interior

4.0

Clean and well maintained except for the center console. The lid was broken, and the previous owner screwed it shut instead of fixing or replacing it. No tears or major damage in the seats or carpet. Dash wasn't cracked, and there were no stains in any of the fabric. It really was pretty clean.
Exterior

3.0

A few dents here and there, but nothing major. Small ones that can be fixed for little cost. The paint was in good shape. There were no rust spots anywhere that I could see that stood out. The bed of the truck did have a goose neck hitch which was a plus, but the bed was filthy and full of trash.
Performance

3.0

For the engine, that was really 4 stars. The cooling system had issues. (Radiator reservoir leaked.) The gas gauge didn't function properly and was intermittent, the power steering pump was bone dry and may have leaked, the windshield washer pump didn't work and its reservoir leaked, the turn signal on the right side didn't work. This was due to the entire right side light assembly being full of water. The radio did work, but the speaker was completely blown out on the front left side, and the one on the front right was partially blown out. The two speakers in the rear did work. The air conditioner didn't work, but the heater did. The fan motor worked. Finally, the parking brake didn't work. Most likely because of the cable being stretched because the brakes, front and back worked okay. I think because of all the issues, it would have had a hard time passing a vehicle inspection if it became necessary. On a final note, I didn't drive it long enough to find out if the fuel consumption was good or not, but I suspect it wasn't.

I would have to rate this "low" because of all the needed repairs. It could be unsafe, or it could break down and leave a family stranded. If all the needed repairs were performed, it would be a very family friendly vehicle.
Cost

2.0

The price was attractive until all the "sins" revealed themselves. It could have taken (by my estimation) almost $4000.00 or more to make it what it should have been if it had been well maintained. For the year of the vehicle, and its condition, IF you wanted to take the time and money to fix it up, it probably would still make a good truck in the end. I just didn't want to get into even more hidden surprises as the project moved forward. I opted out.

"So far we really like this truck. We have been enjoying it we drive it every were. If asked we would tell anyone to buy a GMC Sierra"

by TKWHEELER on January 28, 2015

"The LLY Duramax is an amazing and reliable truck. No shortage of power and a very smooth ride. The only reason it is at 4 stars is because the engineers who designed it made it very expensive in labor costs to work on. Either then that awesome truck!"
