When buying used there can be problems caused by vehicles previous owners and not so much the problems with the specific model years. I went from a 1996 GMS Sierra I owned for 23 problem free years to a used 2012 GMC Sierra SLT I bought last year for the same reason "budget". I love it as that year is a mix of old/new style. Before buying any used vehicle have a mechanic friend look it over if you can't do it yourself. I do like the new style introduced in 2014 to present but can't comment on ownership... Good luck with your search. Ralph
Welcome Mr. Speed...what about testing results from your neighbor just north of you or USA only? I drive a 2012 5.3L Sierra. Are you looking for test results with or without AFM or doesn't matter.
I'm one of many I can say have driven GM's all my life and never had issues to warrant encouraging others not to buy a GM vehicle. My last vehicle bought used I just sold I drove for 22 yrs 1996 Sierra and currently drive a 2012 Sierra used and could not be more pleased. If you are able to own all those 3 vehicles which I consider high end in my books...your repair bill I would consider packet change.
I think Cameron summed it up well... Are you doing the work yourself but looking for step by step instructions? You got a free truck so you may consider selling it and looking for a 5.3 or 6.2 of same value if it suits your need.
Very impressive Charles...thanks for posting.
Thanks Area51...your unit seems to have a pretty good review over-all. I was thinking of just getting the a TomTom or Garmin so I will see which direction I will go.
Just thought I'd start this thread in search of anyone that has installed an after market in dash radio/gps screen unit to replace the radio only unit. I bought a 2012 GMC Sierra last year that didn't come with GPS option. Are there any reasonably priced after market unit with good reviews that compare to the factory units? Thoughts on if it's worth the money? I'll throw out that I'm in Canada which may narrow down my options.

Ralph Ciardullo replied to texasnavy05's topic in 6.6L Gas V8 & HD Transmission Powertrain (L8T/MYD)I would think a good quality premium oil is well worth the extra money when considering the amount of coin we drop for our new rigs.
