1997 GMC Sonoma SLS Sport 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

Has leaked oil, coolant, trans lube, freon since the day I bought it. GM would do nothing. Had to drive a whole year without heat because nobody could figure out why or fix it. Noisy transmission. Mysterious electrical problems. Eats oxygen sensors. Needs new ones every 2 years. Drove about 4 years with the "check engine" light on. Hard to fix since everything is so tightly jammed in the engine compartment. I would not buy GMC again. Yeah, a Sonoma is not a "real" truck. But just because it's small is no excuse for bad design and manufacturing. It wasn't a cheap truck.

Favorite Features

It often moves forward when you step on the gas.

Suggested Improvements

Make it repairable. Make it so it doesn't leak a quart a month of every known fluid.
