1996 Chevrolet C/K 1500 Series C1500 Cheyenne 2dr Extended Cab LB

Review

i originally purchased this truck for the gas mileage (V6) and to haul my dirt bike in. Installed a K&N filter and MSD for better mileage. Ride is good. Controls and comfort are good. In the last 50K miles had to replace alternator ($100), water pump(~$50), fuel pump($400), ignition module ($500) and the air conditioning compressor ($500). Also all exterior handles. total mileage 96K. Wipers sometimes works, sometimes not. Purchased standard transmission, auto transmission fails after every 70K miles (known several people who have auto trans problems). Will most likely purchase Chevy van as next vehicle, have had worse luck with Ford and Dodge.

Favorite Features

Gas mileage (20 mpg), comfort, dealer gives lifetime warranty on some replaced items like fuel pump.

Suggested Improvements

I understand parts break down, but dealer should charge less for repairs. Every repair seems to be around $500. Also better hardware, changing handles is a real pain to do.
