No frills luxury

by Captain Nightowl from St. Cloud, MN on Thu Sep 01 2011

In 2WD it rides like a luxury car. In 4WD it slices through 10 inch snow covered roads while other vehicles get stuck. The only drawback is the short pickup bed.

Best truck I've ever had

by Pancho villa from CA on Thu Apr 04 2013

Super reliable. 165,0000 miles and running like a champ. All it wants is oil changes and gas. My next truck will be a gmc. I highly recommend this truck.

Best Small Truck for the Buck$

by TexasMike from DFW, Texas on Fri Feb 15 2013

I've owned other small trucks and the Sonoma out performed them all. The 4.3 V6 gives plenty of power and torque. Hauls heavy loads and can pull 2900 on the bumper hitch or 5000 with an equaizer hitch. If you buy one with the ZQ8 factory suspension package, it will be fun to drive when empty, with a 2" lower stance, improved handling and minimum body roll. It's very reliable and on the rare occasion it needs repair, the parts are inexpensive and easy to find. The interior controls are well placed, with no hiiden or hard to reach buttons. Seats are comfortable,even on long trips. I recommend the extended cab model. better seating adjustments and you have room to keep items out of view behind the seats.

Great on gas

by Sonomadriver from New York on Wed Jun 28 2017

It's a solid daily driver for anyone on a tight budget. It's not a real show stopper, but it gets me from point A to point B. The fuel economy on the 2.2l 4 cylinder is great, but the power is non-existent. Having the 4x2 model the rear end can get really squirrelly in the snow. Putting on a good set of winter tires and weight in the bed helps remedy tatt nicely. It's a relatively cheap truck to fix as long as you are up to date with maintenance. The downside is replacing the fuel pump can be a real hassle due to rust. Rust on the body of these trucks is inevitable (especially on the wheel arches) and probably impossible to stop. Overall the GMC Sonoma is dependable, solid, and a fuel efficient truck.

Nice truck

by Arronh77 from Stewart on Sat Mar 24 2018

It's nice, thought it would be a smoother ride with the zq8 suspension. I have owned 3 S series trucks. It's in decent shape for its age.
