LS trim package Ext. Cab.
Purchased in March 1997.
Vortec V6 w/4-speed automatic tranmission.
Current milage - 75k.
Not a bad little pickup. The performance is nice, although I think the transmission could be a little more refined. It's had about $600 worth of repair work over the past 5 years, which isn't bad.
Despite the problems, the return on my purchase has far outweighed the problems. I am a satisfied customer.
The climate control system works great. Powerful and spitited Vortec V6. Although I don't give high ratings to the 4 speed automatic transmission, it really isn't that bad. Today with 75k miles on it, I still get 22-23 miles to the gallon!
The jump seats could be a little better build quality.
The AM/FM Cassette Stereo is a bit to be desired.
The mirrors also started to be more sensitvie to road vibration after about 40k.
