    Good Little Hauler. — I purcheased this little truck a little over a year ago, and I haven't had any major problems with it. I drove it from Grand Rapids, MI to Sevierville, TN and back, i averaged 30 MPG, and had a great ride. It can do a fair amount of hauling, even when overloaded. Acceleration is lacking due to its small 2.2 4 cylinder engine. It doesn't handel very well either, but it's a truck, so, that's ok.

    Pros: Light, great gas mileage, fun to drive.

    Cons: Slow, can't haul very much.

    It Runs Great — its red has a 4.3 vortec v6 posi-trac rear end, 4 speed automatic runs and drives tops out at 97 i installed an aftermarket sound system with 3 12's 2 6x9's and 2 61/2's. Recently installed smoked euro style taillights. I get between 15 and 19 mpg. only had it stuck 3 times in 3 years. not bad for northeast missouri weather conditions

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: posi trac rear end

    Cons: its curently wrecked but still driveable

    Great All Around Truck. — After 160,000 miles, it still runs like new. The 4.3 liter V6 has good acceleration, no leaks, no weird noises, transmission doesn't slip. The body is in great shape. Very little rust, minor dents. I've had it since 2005 and the only major repair was a new fuel pump and gas tank. I've added fog lights, a cd player, window vents and LED tail lights. I wish it had four wheel drive for the winter and a/c for the summer but other than that its a great little truck.

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

    Pros: When you don't need a full size truck to haul stuff.

    Cons: Poor gas mileage even for a V6.

    I got this truck for a daily driver and for the snow. It drives great and handles very good in the snow. Only things bad are the size of the truck bed and it eats through gas with its V6 engine. Read More
