A mixed bag but overall I've liked it

I have the ZR2 off-road package, and overall this has been a dependable vehicle. Reasonably comfortable, low wind noise, rides well (for a 4x4), suspension package was a great investment - have gotten 70k miles w/o uneven wear on tires, fun little SUV for cross-country camping trips. 21 mpg highway, 15 city. It hasn't been without its issues. It does tend to have a lot of squeaks, cheap-o interior plastic doesn't help. The biggest problem I had was having to replace the transmission at 50,000 miles. Did have some premature ball joint replacement also. Heater core went out at about 110k miles, radiator cracked at 140k. Other minor problems such as malfunctioning thermometer and broken fuel ga
Styling of ZR2 package - very muscular look that can still be considered stylish. Capable off-road. Reasonably comfortable on long trips (for 2). Heavy duty suspension really saves the tire wear, even if the ride is a bit stiff as a result.
Cheap interior plastic & rear gate that contribute to squeaks. A few premature maintenance/replacement issues (fine since initial repair). Other issues are to be expected of a truck with 143,000 miles on it.
