How Louisville Area Drivers Can Maintain Their GMC Sierra 1500
There's no denying that the GMC Sierra 1500 is a reliable pickup truck for drivers in the greater Louisville and Omaha areas. There are many stories out there of the vehicles lasting well over 150,000 miles, and properly maintaining your truck goes a long way in making sure that goal is attainable. Here at Copple Chevrolet GMC, we'd like to give drivers a few pointers on the matter so you can maximize the rugged reliability of the GMC truck.
While much of this is outlined in the owner's manual, it's important to go over it again.

To know when to bring your truck in to be serviced, take a look at the list we've put together below.
