Review

The truck has served me well, but being 15 years old, it has a lot of rust that is causing it to fall apart.

Review

I purchased this Sport Trac used to replace a 2013 Silverado. Unlike the Silverado, it fits well in a garage, while still being good for hauling a family of four or materials for home improvement. The cab is larger than the 4 door S-10's of the era, so the have more room inside and are more comfortable for rear seat passengers. The bed is shorter however, so it is not as good for hauling construction materials, so that is the compromise. But with the tailgate down and the swing out cargo gate, it will still haul basic building and home improvement supplies. It handles well and is very maneuverable in parking lots and other tight spaces but the gas mileage is a little worse than advertised. My kids love it, and are already fighting over who gets it when they are old enough to drive in a few years. It has been reliable and trouble free, and I have had to only do normal oil changes/servicing. Overall a great vehicle.

Review

There is nothing about this vehicle that I don't like. It looks great on the inside and on the outside, has a comfortable ride and performs great.
