Review of the 2003 GMC Sonoma

  • We know the value of an old trusty pickup, but in the Sonoma's case, it's just plain old. A redesign is on the way next year, but if you need a compact truck now, we suggest checking out the competition first.

  • Safety
  • Pros

    Multiple configurations, fuel-efficient base engine, torquey V6.

  • Cons

    Low-buck interior, spotty build quality, poor resale value.

  • What's New for 2003

    The Sonoma gets a few changes for what will be the final year of production of the current model. There's a new split-folding bench seat on all two-wheel-drive models, new seat materials, an optional six-disc CD changer and a sport package for crew-cab models.

Vehicle: 2003 GMC Sonoma 2dr Regular Cab SLS Rwd SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

First off, bought the truck on GM's reputation. Decent design, good comfort, but performance, and gas mileage is something to be desired. I had a '96 Nissan 4 banger that would run circles around this GMC. Come on guy's get with it.

Since I have had my Sonoma, I have gotten avg. of 26mpg. The power of the 4 cyl engine leaves to be desired, however, it is a good crusing truck and rides very nice. It is sporty looking and really fun to drive.
