Not A Bad Truck — Bought the truck used. I wanted a truck for fishing and hunting, and 4x4 because I do a fair amount of ice fishing. I would of preferred a larger truck but I was looking for better gas mileage.

Pros

can haul stuff and nobody can ride with you

Cons

super slow

Cheapest Car To Own. — its rear wheel drive which makes drifting in the winter awesome. can burn out which is cool. its ultra slow though. the 2.2 L engine is way too small. it gets 30-some miles a gallon on the highway though. it also takes the on-ramp to the highway at 50 miles an hour. it is a little squeely though...

Pros

looks, sound, torque, and fun to drive

Cons

gas mileage and leg room

35

I'd Buy Another One — one of my favorite vehicles i've owned. fun, cheap and throws some dual exhaust, interior, and some wheels and you've got a nice little cruiser. watch the frames on those though because they like to rust and rot. The V6 is really torquey so burnouts are almost unavoidable. I'd put money on this... If it could hook off the line, it would probably do a wheel stand

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Fun No Matter Where You Go — nice little truck, its a 4x4 and has flowmasters on it. the truck rides good, on the highway, in the mud, where ever it goes, its pretty cheap, not much on fixing it up or anything like that. a sonoma is the right truck to go mudding in!!

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)
