By Owned for Five Years on
Vehicle2001 GMC Sonoma 2dr Regular Cab SLS 2WD SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewOwned mine 5 yrs & very happy with it. SLS, standard cab (2 seats), 5-speed manual trans., 2.2L 4-cyl., stereo with single CD, manual door locks and manual windows. 19-22 mpg city, 24.0- 25.6 mpg hwy; range about 350-360 miles/tank. Rides better with a load in the bed. Very reliable. Interior gauges easy to see. Daytime running lights & it switches automatically to night headlamps, very useful. Comfortable. Perfectly engineered for its purpose. Good looking exterior. I added a soft tonneau, then a cap when I could afford, which helped gas mileage 1-2 mpg. Great visibility without cap, limited but acceptable with cap. Small bump in bed where gas tank is, not a big deal. Good turning radius.
Best FeaturesEngineering, reliability, gas mileage for non-hybrid, enough power, good interior, 3 power outlets, mpg, value for the money, ground clearance, affordable, can run on E-85 gas.
Worst FeaturesRemove carpet from driver side floor or increase size of floormats (I bought larger aftermarket mats to cover hole in carpet made by tennis shoes); include door lock for tailgate; add rubber liner to spare tire holder - mine rusted & stuck to the wheel.
