I've owned this vehicle for about 10k miles so far and a little over a year. I have the single cab 2.2 liter ls version (2wd). Not a bad little truck. I have had ease finding many after market parts to put on this to keep it with the traditional "mini truck" scene. I get looks and people stop me and talk to me about my 4,000$ truck all the time which was surprising. Doesn't take much to make these things look pretty good. Believe it or not you can fit a lot in this truck bed. The overall ride I don't much remember as I've upgraded the whole suspension and wheel/tire package. The one thing I do hate about this truck is the 2.2 does not like to go up large hills and has a heck of a time getting to 70 mph on the interstate. But once it does..rides good, rpms stay consistent. OEM parts are CHEAP for this thing. They are known for slight electrical problems (mine has 35k original miles and reverse light failure due to shortage in one of the wires). Overall...solid, cheap truck and you can actually tow more than you think you can with these things.

I've owned the 2.2 liter five speed manual version of this truck for ten years. It is dependable and reliable and mine has 175000 miles on it. As long as you keep up on the oil changes and maintenance this truck should easily run 250000 miles on the original engine and transmission.

this truck is just fun to drive. It has all of the options an old guy could ever want including a C.D. player and a separate tape deck! It's definitely a "go anywhere" machine and the bucket seats are very comfortable. access to the cab is easy with the truly adjustable steering wheel. Am looking forward to the roll out of the Colorado P.U. next year.

Reliable little utility truck

My husband bought this truck in 2000, having owned an older model before that. We used it for everything for the first 7 years we had it. It was cheap to keep and cheap to run, and the interior styling and transmission were more like a car's. Then he passed, and now I use it as a utility vehicle - dump runs, taking the dogs out for fun, and for everything when my main car is not usable for whatever reason. Have spent little money on repairs, just ordinary maintenance. It gets about 22 mph city, 30 or more hwy. I don't use it for road trips because the ride isn't particularly conmfortable. However no way would I sell it as long as it runs.

basically a good vehicle. not fast. less than average amount of power especially in the higher elevations. reasonably good fuel economy. falls apart slowly, 3rd door handle broke twice, seats are not awesome, since 98 replaced alternator, exhaust system with catalytic converter, oil leak repaired and with 167,000 miles it still seems to be doing well.
