1999 GMC Sonoma 2 Dr SL Standard Cab LB Review


If you need something reliable with more cargo room than the average car


If you dont want to be seen driving something cute


Its A Solid Truck. — Performance- The acceleration leaves something to be desired but it is definetly decent. The braking is awesome when the truck is empty but when its fully loaded and towing it can be a little scary. It handles like a dream from tight corners to hitting hills at high speeds. Build quality - The only repairs ive had to make are 1 ball joint a clutch and slave cylinder alternator and sending unit. for 120,000 miles thats not to be unexpected. Aside from those issues it ran like a dream constantly without a rattle or squeak. Appearance- Ill be blunt. It looks like a toy. People see it and say " aw look at the cute little red truck" Which is not a bad thing but there are definetly areas that could be improved like the rear bumper and the dash. Cost of ownership- Well this is going to be hard to belive running a 2.2L 4 cyl and a 5 speed manual i could squeeze 32 mpg out of it if i was behaving and not romping on the gas. The parts are cheap, from the 14$ ball joint to the 100$ clutch none of them made me think " Jesus i might as well just buy a new car" Which is exactly what you want in my opinion. Fun Factor- Its fun.

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