Wonderful vehicle there is a reason they discontinued the 4.3 Liter CPI engine. Certain things go out like clockwork but the truck is almost 20 years old now. The thing had over 300k on the engine when some crazy woman ran the truck over while I at a stop in traffic. It folded the bed under the cab area and the frame was bent near double. I walked away from the wreck with a concussion.

I have a 94 Sonoma with a 4.3 tbi engine with 181,000 miles on it and it still gets me around 20 miles to the gallon and runs like a champ. I bought it with 152,000 on it and I've driven it hard as hell and it's held up with no major problems except I threw a clutch once but hey it happens. I couldn't be happier with my truck. It has been such a great truck. I'm sinking almost $10,000 back into it to make it a show truck for me and the family to enjoy for a long time to come

Well first off the truck is a overall
good truck, but the performance stinks.
I definatelly recommend the best top of
the line tires for traction. The brake
system in it is awful, and it will skid
or turn sideways very easily. How this
truck hasn't caused more rear end
collisions is a miracle, and but by God
I think it would have. The brakes lock
up and it takes forever to get this
thing to stop, have been told was a
problem with the anti lock braking
system in them back them. I suggest you
use pleny of room for stopping when
driving especially if the road is wet at
all, and be very careful, and never ever
drive on snow, or else you got really
