Pros

Next to the 96 Chevy s10 I owned several years ago..this truck is just as awesome ! Repairs are minor and cheap,the gas mileage is great . And she has never left me on the road side waiting for a tow truck.

Cons

I'm having a hard time finding some body parts.

I Love This Truck. — I enjoy getting in my truck and driving it. I am in the process of modifying it. She has a little rust on the body( cab only), and the tailgate is ate up . I bought it last year from a buddy of mine. It sat in a field for a year. The frame is in excellent shape. I had to replace hoses, the serpentine belt and plugs n wires. Later I had a new distributor, rotor and cap installed. For the most part, I only paid $1500 for the truck and the repairs only ran $600. I think it was a pretty good deal.

Pros

good stereo, cd/am/fm, good to be help for friends moving

Cons

it handled badly and was very bad on our michigan icy roads, which became the fault of many off road expeditions that I did not want to take in the middle of the night.

The Kris-mobile — Well, I was honestly sad to get rid of this one. I'd had it for about 10 years, but it was finally time to move on. When I traded it in for my G6, the dealer told me that he didn't know what I was doing to make it run so well, but to keep it up! I've been a lot of places with this little two-seater, and it's brought me through some terrible times and some wonderful times.

Shoebox would have made it there.

Guttless And Cursed. Gmc's Bic Lighter. — The 2.2L engine was not only powerless but also hard on gas. Put two fuel pumps through it and had to replace two injectors.
