"I've owned this vehicle for 14 years, so it has been a real bargain! It's reliable, never left me stranded and for the people whom complain about lack of power,try fueling it with E-85 and it'll run like a race care. The fuel filler door will tell you if your vehicle can run E-85. but there is a trade off, as there always is. You'll get more power, but not as much mileage. So if you're going to be driving in the mountains or some other situation where power is an issue. Find a gas station that carries E-85. Otherwise remember it's a little 4 cylinder, and that's what you bought."

"The 2.2 4 cyl. lacks a little power especially going up hills. The inside is nice, well as nice as you would expect it to be. I've owned this truck for about 5 months now and absolutely love it, the gas mileage is unreal if you drive it right and i would recommend anyone to this vehicle."

"My truck is the best man I could have ever asked for. With basic maintenance and a few fuel pumps later He is still going. I had to write a review of gratitude for Chevrolet and my mechanic."

"I was so lucky to find this old truck for the price I paid for it. One common problem with the 2.2 motor are the O2 sensors are notorious for burning out. I replaced both of them a month after I bought the truck and it runs beautifully. I just retired and was looking for an old pick up to go fishing and deliver smoked meat. I really love the little extras this old truck features such as extensions on the sun visors, dome light and headlight delays, factory cup holder, all of which work great. I can't say enough good things about this little old truck and I have been a lifetime FORD and TOYOTA owner."

"I have a 1998 model of this truck 4.3 liter VORTEC V6, 5 speed manual trans. Mirrors break off with the slightest bump from shoppers in the store parking lot,four so far,plastic mounts,$160 a piece from Chevy. Seat parts break,plastic. Third door handle breaks,plastic,three times so far,$60 from Chevy,;Found aluminum third party replacement that works well on internet. For a truck built in Canada you would think the doors would stay unlocked after you get in in almost and slightly below freezing temps. So three lockouts with the engine running! Have to keep a second key. The VORTEC is a nightmare to work on. Problems too numerous to name at this time. Heater core cost $1800 to replace at shop, and the book calls for 16 hours. I did it in 18 for a normally easy to replace part. This requires a complete dash removal and blind drilling of holes through the firewall just to get the the bolts for removal. Currently fighting another unknown engine misfire making it un-driveable. Worst $23000 I have ever spent plus interest on a new truck. That said; You can leave the door open or a interior light on and it will turn them off without running the battery down, and it tracks and drives well when it not driving up the wall with other problems. I hate this truck and am stuck with it since I can't afford another"
