Pros

It will drive (if nothing else), good gas mileage

Cons

Big equipment shortfalls, built from low quality materials, lots of non engine things stop working, even the speakers get wet because of the bad weather seals.

It Will Get You To Work, Is Reliable, But It Doesn't Mean You're Going To Have A Comfortable Trip. — I will give this truck 4 stars for being reliable enough to not have major work done on it in the last 7 years I've owned it, with 125K miles on it. But the fan blower only works on setting #4, it stalls out when turning sharp turns sometimes in the cold, and lacks acceleration during first 30 seconds of travel. But an induction service next week should clear all of that up. Apart from that, the engine has worked well, no transmission problems, and has reliably gotten me to work for several years.

Great, Reliable Truck For A Cheap, Competitive Price. — This truck has a lot more get up and go for what you would expect out of a small-engined truck. It is a Chevy, so, of course, it is cheap to own and maintain! It is quite a fun truck to drive as well.

Nick's Rado — The truck is red with black 20" wheels. Just recently got the bed Line-X'd...best money i have ever put into that truck! I have, however, had to rebuild the tranny once (stripped the splines on the sun shell) and had the tranny replaced the second time it happened.

Ok Truck — Well, I have had to replace 3 bulbs in the past 6 months. Last year when it got to 12 below 0, it was in "limp" mode and it cost over $900 to fix. I also had to get the brakes done. Other than that, it is pretty freaking sweet. 4-door, inline-5, orange with black trim, and fast as hell! I have had to bring it in 4 times because the blower would stop working. Each time I had to pay $100 for my insurance deductible. I had to being it in last month, no more warranty, and the jerk-off at Suburban Chevrolet tells me that I have to pay $725 to replace the resistor, blower motor, and the wiring harness. The problem had nothing to do with what he said. Chevrolet paints the inside of the fenders. There is a grounding block that is attached to the passenger side fender, but because of the paint, it was not grounding properly. I unbolted it, sanded it down to the bare metal, put on a washer, and the blower now works. A hell of a lot cheaper than $725! Chevrolet doesn't seem to give a rat's a** about it's blunder to make a recall fix for it.

Good Choice — Like the look interior and exterior. Like the interior space (quite roomy compared to the Toyota, Nissan, Dodge, and Ford. Wish it was a little bit wider. Wish it had a long bed. Good engine power. Good handling. Expensive key's and keyless entry clickers. Expensive steering wheel and crash bag.

Pros

Acceleration is wonderful for the 5 cyl engine

Not all the room of a full sized truck as far as width goes, but i think it has more leg room than full sized trucks

Good Truck Not Hardly Any Problems Out Of It. — It includes many features like automatic dusk sensing headlights, and a radio with RDS.
