Great Commute/work Truck. — This is a great vehicle for work or commuting. Gas milage is what you'd expect for a 4 cylinder. Seats are comfortable. Handles great even with cargo in the bed. Great visibility all around. Never any problems with engine or transmission.

Best Car I've Owned — I bought this truck because I love cars but needed something the haul things. I picked up the ZQ8 sport model with the I5 and a 5 speed. Much quicker than the automatics, better fuel economy and more fun. The clutch on this truck is super easy to use. Great steering, great brakes. Compared to my Dad's Ranger, this truck is Lexus. It has needed absolutely nothing brake pads. I've done shocks, spark plugs, coolant flush and hoses...etc preventatively. Super easy to work on, lots of space around components. Couldn't ask for better. Body has held up GREAT! My Brother's old F150 had the frame rust in half at similar mileage. This truck still looks like new. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a car, truck or otherwise. At 152,000 miles, I expect this to go 300,000 easy. If something breaks it won't cost much to fix.

Pros

Handles well, very nice interior with leather seats and seat heaters, great looking exterior, fair gas mileage, good every day vehicle

Cons

2-wheel drive! No steering wheel controls, no XM radio, rear wheel drive makes for easy fishtail-ing in wet, snowy, and icy conditions,

Good Low-budget, Every Day Truck — I really like the look of the truck, the gas mileage, and the comfortable interior. One of my favorite features are the seat heaters. My biggest complaint is the lack of four-wheel drive, which is largely my fault. Overall it is a satisfactory, affordable truck. It definitely has quite a bang for the amount of bucks!

Pros

great looking vehicle, everybody stops me to compliment about it, very efficient on fuel, added a cold air intake (that made it sound better and add more hp)... in a nutshell ,my baby!

Cons

not a family vehicle

Neck Breaker. — I love everything about this truck, don't dislike anything from it. Love taking my baby cleaning my baby and taking her to the car meets, is almost a show car, just need to add a show car interior and it would be completed. Also has a nice stereo system with a 800 watts amp and 2 12" sub. No rust at all, keep the under hood and engine compartment spotless.

Pros

Durable and very reliable mid sized truck. Very good fuel economy on the highway. Comfortable to drive and handles well in all weather conditions.

Cons

Being a crew cab, the box is shorter than I'd like.

Great. — I've had the truck since it was new. Unlike other trucks I've owned, this has been by far the most reliable truck for a mid size. I've had a Ford Ranger 4X4 also, and the GM out does it virtually every catagory.

Pros

Feels pretty big for a 1/4 ton, love the look of it, plus it's a Chev : )

Cons

Electric shift transfer case, rear seats are TINY

Love It. — My baby truck has hnough power for what I need to do, I'm not hauling any big trailers or anything. Picks up pretty good for a 5 cylinder. Love the look of it, especially with the offset tires on it. Rough ride, but probably because I've got added leaf springs in the back and torsion bars cranked in the front. I get about 550 kms to the tank, pretty average for most 1/4 tons as far as I'm concerned. Fun to go out and play on the trails, I can keep up pretty good with the big boys : )

Pros

Everything was great on this truck.... no major problems over 350,000 kms and many more to go

Cons

The only thing I hate about this vehicle is the fact that I no longer need it and that I have to sell it.

Great Vehicle And Good Times — I have had this vehicle for over 6 years now and I have over 350,000 kms on it. No major breakdowns or repairs to be done. Regular maintenance and up-keep is all that was needed. I am surprised that this vehicle does not have a spot of rust showing anywhere, even under carriage and frame, and for a vehicle traveling in Canada on very salty roads in winter, and living on the Sea where air even has salt in it. Great vehicle and if I needed to have another pick-up, I would by the same. Sold the vehicle to a friend of mine which shows that I do believe that there is still lots of good driving to be had with it.

ZQ8 Factory Lowered Suspension

Cons

Squatt

Good Value — ZQ8 Sport-factory lowered suspension package makes it drive like a car rather than a truck. Respectable power for L5 auto with use of premium gas. G80 locking rear does well in snow, no need for 4x4. Shortbed has enough room to carry 4x8 sheets. Fold down rear seat convenient for shopping.
