Good All Around Vehicle. — I like the overall performance of the vehicle and the price for year model. The downside is some maintenance is required due to high miles. But all and all not that bad of a vehicle and I plan on keeping vehicle for a long time.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Good all around vehicle.  Cheap for year model.

Cons: some maintenance required with high miles, nothing major.

Perfect Truck For All Needs — This truck was a limo, a moving truck, a hauler, a camping tent, a bus, there is nothing that this truck can't do. It's been extremely reliable. After 135000 miles the only thing I have replaced was the thermostat. If I was not planning on having a large family I would keep mine.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great truck. Extremely reliable, and dependable.  

Cons: Small back seat.

If You Need A Truck To Use As A Truck, This Is The One For You. — This thing had a lot of power. With all the power though, of course, you lose any kind of fuel economy. You can make up the hurt in your pocket with the fact that these are extremely cheap to maintain.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Style, Power, Versatility

Cons: Fuel Economy

My Next One Will Be 4x4 — I have done a few mods since purchase. Flow master, stripes, wheels and spoiler. Hypertech programer, and redneck cold air intake. Lowered 2 inches in the rear. 373 rear end limited slip dif. gets around 17 mpg if I keep my foot out of it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its a head turner

Cons: Wish it was a 4x4 and had a back seat

Good Work Truck And A Perfect Play Too — I loved this truck. Wish I still had it. I used and abused this truck and it kept going. I used this truck to haul race cars 6 hours away and only used a tank and a half of fuel.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: It had all the towing power you could want from a half ton truck and and was quick too.

Cons: I loved every thing about this truck

It's Great! Rides And Drives Great — I like this color. The seats are really comfortable. The back seat is big enough for a car seat for my grand kids. I would recomend this truck for anyone. For the money, it should last for a long time. The roll up cover is great when hauling things and the nerf bars make it easy to get in and out of. The 5.3 engine has plenty of power and goes down the highway very nice.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Been a great truck, but I took a job at a Ford dealership and am looking to get an F150..

Cons: Service air bag light just came on.  Someone predicted a corrodid contact on the front sensor.  Not sure how to fix this.

I Love It And Wont Ever Sell It — A little under powered with the 4.3L VORTEC, but with the right amount of money (a lot of it) can be modded easily. Very fuel economic for a pick-up that gets driven like it was a Miata. Not many after market engine mods and the ones there are they are insane exspensive.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: different, enjoyable

Cons: aftermarket mod prices
