1989 GMC Sierra SL 2500 - 2WD
Up for sale is my trusted GMC Sierra pickup truck. NO RESERVE. I bought the truck as a work/beater truck for household/yard jobs but it turns out I seldom drive it so here it is for sale. The previous owner had this truck in a fleet as evidenced by the dirt embedded into the interior despite my best efforts to remove it. The mileage is uknown (which is why the listing showns 999,999). The odometer has never turned since I purchased the truck in 2010. The engine runs strong and has been trouble free since I purchased it. If you are looking for a basic and inexpensive work truck that you don't need to worry about putting to work and scraping it up, this one fits the bill!
2WD - Two Wheel Drive
3 speed automatic
8 foot box
This truck is relatively unique in that it has very few options. It is not equipped with a/c - hence the blank out plates on the vents on the dash. Instead the truck has pull-stops to open fresh-air vents below the dash.
Radio with cassette player (non-functioning - I don't know why)
Starts the first time, every time
Solid exhaust system (see photos)
Tires still have a lot of tread depth on them
The mileage of the truck is unknown. It reads a bit over 112,000 miles, but it was reading this when I bought the truck in the summer of 2010 and the reading has never changed.
Transmission leaks a little bit of fluid - I assume it needs a new gasket but I have never attempted to replace/repair it.
Rust (see photos)
Passenger seat-belt doesn't tension properly (latches but is not fully taught)
Radio and cassette player do not work (turns on, but no sound)
Dome light doesn't work - may just need a new bulb
Tears in the seat cushion
Fading amateur paint job
Spare tire and jack are both missing
Check engine light comes on occasionally, but doesn't stay on and doesn't seem to run any differently when the light comes on.
Please contact me if you are interested in coming to check the truck out. The truck is no longer currently registered as I just transferred plates to another vehicle so test drives will have to be limited to the side-streets in my neighborhood.
Here is the not-so-fine print:
Vehicle is sold 'AS IS' with no warranty.
Vehicle must be picked up within 14 days of end of auction.
$100 deposit required within 48 hours of close of auction.
Any bidders with a feedback rating of less than 5 will be cancelled.

Ford's extensive use of aluminum in its 2015 F-150 is a big deal. A really big deal. Big enough, in fact, that General Motors is reportedly changing its fullsize pickup strategy. According to The Wall Street Journal, The General has locked in partnerships with Alcoa Inc. and Novelis Inc. - companies that will supply aluminum for the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks.
Tue, 17 Aug 2010 11:28:00 EST
"Ford's introduction of the 2015 F-150 pickup truck was a game changer, and it's the first, not the last, conversion of this type," Novelis spokesperson Charles Belbin told the Journal. The switch to aluminum has allowed Ford to shave roughly 700 pounds off its fullsize truck's curb weight. And while official mileage ratings have not been announced, the weight loss should go a long way for improving efficiency, especially when combined other efficiency-minded improvements including better aerodynamics and new, turbocharged V6 engines.
Of course, aluminum-bodied cars are nothing new. But extensive use of aluminum in a major, best-selling product like the Ford F-150 is expected to kick off widespread use of this weight-saving material as availability rises and cost decreases. The WSJ reports that GM had originally explored the idea of moving to aluminum pickups back in 2008, but abandoned the idea due to cost concerns amid economic woes.

The summer of 2010's recall hit parade continues unabated today, with General Motors having just announced that it is asking 243,403 owners of its 2009-2010 Lambda crossovers to bring their three-row haulers in for inspection. The culprit? Second-row seat belts in select Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook CUVs have "failed to perform properly in a crash."
According to GM, a second-row seat-side trim piece is to blame, as it can impede the upward rotation of the buckle after the seat is folded flat. As a result, if the buckle makes contact with the seat frame, cosmetic damage can occur, potentially requiring additional force to operate the buckle properly. So far, no great shakes, but in the process of applying that additional force, the occupant may push the buckle cover down to the strap, potentially revealing and depressing the red release button. As a result of this, the belt may not latch, or in certain cases, it may actually appear to be latched when, in fact, it isn't.
The recalls keep rolling in from General Motors, evidently keen to avoid repeating the mistakes of the ignition-switch debacle and clean house. This time they're all coming at once, with five separate recalls announced together covering approximately 2.7 million vehicles.
The largest of the five actions involves over 2.4 million units of the previous-generation Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura in order to fix brake light wiring harness, which have been found to be susceptible to corrosion. The recall is separate from the 56k Aura sedans which GM recently recalled over faulty shift cables, not to mention the previous massive recall of 1.3 million vehicles - some of them the same models - but appears to have resulted from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigation that started with the G6 almost a year ago.
The second-largest campaign involves the 2014 Chevy Malibu, specifically those fitted with GM's 2.5-liter engine and stop/start system, approximately 140,000 examples of which has been found to have problematic brakes. The issue does not appear to be connected to the recall of 8k Malibu and Buick LaCrosse sedans (also involving brake woes) which we reported upon last week. Four crashes have been reported in such models, but GM admits it's not yet clear if the problem was a contributing factor in the accidents.
