I bought this truck used with almost 200,000 miles on it for a very fair price. That was in 2005 and I still drive the truck as my commuter vehicle every day. Currently the truck has 330,000 and I just did my only major repair to the truck which was the transmission. It even still has the original motor! Now the truck is a long bed, so it isn't as flashy as some other trucks you see around. It also has manual windows, which can be a bit tedious to deal with. The stock sound system was also very poor and had to be changed out, but a very solid investment.
Story
10 years ago I took my now fiancé to her school's prom! That was a memorable evening.
Pros
The best thing about this vehicle is its dependability. I have been driving this truck nearly everyday for the past 11 years with very few hiccups or issues. I change the oil myself every 3,000 miles and the motor still runs strong. Other than the normal tune-ups and normal car maintenance I have had to do very little to keep this truck running.
Cons
Manual windows! I know it seems like a small gripe, but when you have driven in other cars that have automatic everything it gets annoying! There is also no cruise control, which on long drives can be bothersome. The main issue I have with this vehicle is the plastic door handles. I have had my truck broken into a few times because it is so easy to bust the locks out of the plastic holders inside the handles.

1999 GMC Sierra 1500 - Dependable, well-designed truck.

I love my GMC 1500 Sierra. It has been very dependable, only recently have I needed to replace a couple of parts on it (water pump, alternator), and I've owned it for almost ten years now! It is definitely the best vehicle I have ever owned. It handles very well, and I get a lot of power with the V8 engine in mine.
Story
There are a few people in my small town with this same type of make and model and color (white), and we always honk and wave at each other when you see each other at stop lights!
Pros
This truck is very well made and durable. It also looks very sharp. All of my friends think I paid more for it than I did. It was affordable and has also been very reliable. It looks very similar to the Chevrolet Silverado. The seats are very comfortable, and they are cloth which I prefer (I don't like cold leather during the winter)! I like the three doors. If you have children in the backseat, you don't have to worry about them messing with a back door while you're driving. It has plenty roomy, and of course, I love having a truck for the truck bed itself.
Cons
The only con with this truck, as any larger vehicle, is the gas mileage. Wish I could get a bit more bang for my buck there. But, overall, I am highly satisfied with this vehicle and would definitely recommend it to anyone in the market for a reliable truck that offers a smooth ride.
