2002 GMC Sonoma 3dr Extended Cab SL 2WD SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

Review

I bought this truck new. The biggest complaint I have is the warranty is not good. At 30000 miles the rear axle went out. They rebuilt it with no questions asked. At 40000 miles it went out again, again they rebuilt it and no questions asked. I never towed anything and never abused the truck. The mechanic said he heard a whine at 50000 miles and he was overriden by the rep that was deaf and said he heard nothing. At 52000 miles the rear axle crapped out again and GMC said it was out of warranty and I was on my own. Got a junk yard axle and have had no problems with it since. I've replaced the A/C compressor and the fuel pump, but no other major items and am at 170000 miles! Love this truck

Favorite Features

Economy, easy driving, nice ride for a small truck

Suggested Improvements

Tell GMC to get a better warranty, or actually fix the problem instead of putting a band-aid on it
