2003 GMC Sonoma 3dr Extended Cab SLS Rwd SB (2.2L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Recently replaced my 96 Sonoma (130K miles) with a new one. It's the last chance, as next year Sonomas will only come in 4dr/tiny box hybrid models. The larger, higher, worse mileage Canyon will replace the pickup models. The 2003 model is very similar to the last 7 or 8 years worth, still a durable, cheap, relatively small truck. Main differences: Better seats, slightly peppier due to higher axle ratio, elimination of some fun electrical features like lighted vanity mirrors, underhood light, glovebox light.

Favorite Features

With a tonneau, can get 30+MPG. Relatively low ride height is easy to get into. Rear-hinge 3rd door much easier for large objects than 4dr styles. Can easily put a huge suitcase in back.

Suggested Improvements

Stake pockets! Would love a smaller model similar to pre-1994 S15.
