"I have owned my side step Sonoma for a little over 6 years now its a 2003 model, It looks great. I have loved it. I've had a few little things to be replaced. Last year my air went out this is a little pricey to have fixed. This year 2015 my radiator started leaking (cheap made they are partially made of plastic and it split) had to be replaced but it was a easy change. Before this it was just routine stuff like oil change, tires, brakes and Battery. I have Never yet I say yet had to replace starter,alternator, water pump or gas pump and have Never had transmission problems. I've had problems with my engine light staying on but it was due to a locked gas cap that I used and still comes on and goes off periodically."

"I loved having this vehicle. It was one of the few vehicles I have owned that did not nickle and dime me to death. I had the typical repairs but they were never back to back. It was nice to have the hard tahnoe cover which made the bed into a wonderfully large trunk and the mileage better than it could have been."

"My Sonoma has been the best vehicle I have owned so far. It is a 1999 Sonoma high rider with the tow package. It also has a 4.3L v6 vortec. Of all the times that I have been off road with it, I have never got stuck. The 4x4 always comes in handy either towing something or just going off road. 5 stars all the way!"

"Bought this truck new. Had very few problems. My only complaint is the truck is turning into a rust bucket. Its near the bottom on the extended cab on the passenger side. It must be a defect common to Sonomas. The paint was never damaged and rusted from the inside out."

"Significant system failures - brake, wheel bearings, electrical, body and frame rust through. All with only very light 'truck' duty, just used as a regular car."
