Lots of good to go with the bad

1999 GMC Sonoma SLE 2dr Extended Cab SB
Purchased with 88k miles and now at 91500 miles. Original owner had the usual GM low priced vehicle problems like alternator, a/c, water pump and some bulbs out. No care ever taken of it and I had to restore it but now with new tires, front brakes, and about $100 spent on little stuff, it is fun to own and drive. So far it gets 25-26 mpg whether local or on the 1200 mile trip I took. Enjoyment will increase after I get the A/C fixed.
V6 engine that is great on gas and makes quick get-aways fun. 5000 towing if ever need it. Bedliner, auto, and CD player. Comfortable seats, console, stow room with extended cab.
The cheap interior plastic, recline handle, joltiness of ride on rough roads. Don't change the 25 mpg 180 HP drivetrain.
