1992 GMC Sonoma Regular Cab GT 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

"Jenny" as we call her was given to me after my father passed away about 11 years ago. At first I didn't drive her for about a year. It had 33,000 miles when I got her. Then I started using her for work. She has a 2.8L V6 with a five-speed and pretty much everything you could get on one of these trucks. Everyday, for the next two years I towed a 3000lb generator load bank and close to 1000lbs of tools and equipment around. I was putting 1000 miles a week or more on her. Never any problems except brakes. When I stopped this job she ran about 20,000 miles a year for the next 7 years. After 300,000 miles I've only replaced a tranny 3 clutches, two alternators and I've never been stranded.


Favorite Features

Excellent handling and a very good factory radio. Fuel economy was excellent even when towing, never dipping beneath the twenties. Cruise control works very well.


Suggested Improvements

A better glove compartment door but it has pretty much been a perfect vehicle. Brakes rotors seem to warp easily and pads don't last long but this could also be attributed to the very heavy loads I encounter with it.

Review

Purchased at 48k miles, now have 146k miles, mostly highway. Other than very few routine repairs (water pump, belt, alternater, brakes), this truck is the least costly vehicle I've ever owned and it holds its value. At oil changes, I'd look around the engine to see what needed to be repaired, but each time nothing needed replaced or adjusted. If it weren't for a growing family, I'd keep it, but the cab is too small for two adults and a car seat; now another baby is on the way. Use Uniroyal tires for best ride and handling.


Favorite Features

Rugged interior, low cost maintenance, very reliable. 29mpg on highway trips. I hate to sell it, but the family is growing. Want to buy a good truck?


Suggested Improvements

Glove box door is a bit flimsy for a truck, 2.8 V6 is not enough power on highway hills but 5 speed transmission helps. Cab could be a couple inches wider to more easily fit two adults and a car seat.

Review

Ran great until 30k miles. Had to replace distributor cap and rotor button plug wires and plugs. Every year I have to do this same thing or the engine will start miss firing. after owning the truck 3years the control module went out. I just replaced the control module again plus the coil.


Favorite Features

1992 features are a bit outdated now. But i like the stero sound. i like the rally wheels with beauty rims.


Suggested Improvements

gmc needs to increase fuel econmy without losing horsepower.
