"Bought this truck when it had 90k miles on it. I am up to 210k and its still going. In the 14 years I have owned this truck, I have only had to replace the water pump (twice), the fuel pump, and the distributor. And I'm not one to stay up on maintenance as much as I should. I will be a sad man when this truck has to say goodbye."
"I got this truck about 6 months ago. Being 20 years old its dependable and an all-around tough truck. It was used as a work truck for a long time so it now looks rough inside and out but still all in one piece. With so many miles I didnt think it would last long at all. The only problems were some issues with the heat but a previous owner rigged it his own way and had nooo idea what he was doing. The blower motor went out but it was cheap and easy to fix. I tend to neglect it and beat it up but like i said, its pretty tough. Starts up every time, which is a big deal when my work commute is 20miles one way. id recomend this to anyone!!"

"i've owned this truck for about 2 years now... i've never had any major problems with it, although i never got very good gas milage, usually between 11-14 mpg, 18hwy if i was lucky. but overall i think it is a pretty good little truck"
"I remember shopping for this truck with my dad when I was 9 or ten years old ... 12 years later it became mine. He took great care of it - maintenance + body. I've had it for a few years, driven long distances with it, and although I've had to replace several parts, overall this truck is a great, reliable vehicle. It definately does not feel 16 yrs old!! Up to 147,000 miles and it gets a solid 30mpg highway still. Good acceleration and towing capacity. I've moved halfway across the country with a trailer hitched & my dad used to use it with his boats ...
Since I've owned the Sonoma, I've replaced the muffler train, starter, heater core and brakes. some rusting, my fault. My ex got in an accident with it so the grill is broken in but nothing else was damaged. Every so often I have to add coolant so I know it's leaking ... Been through a lot with this truck, but I love it.
Great vehicle for an independent woman!"
"These things are factory corvette killers! AWD 4.3 V6 Turbo that holds its value. worth more than 90% of other cars its age and in almost any condition.
this thing is fast! they will out accelerate a Dodge Viper, Chevy corvette and Lamborghini Diablo of the same year series. 0-60 in 4.3 seconds. 13.4 1/4 mile."
