1999 GMC Sonoma SLS Sport 2dr Extended Cab SB


I got my truck used with about 54,5xx miles on it. I like the look of the truck, especially looking out over the hood from the driver's seat. It's actually quite pleasant to drive for a truck. The suspension isn't too squishy (floaty). The engine (4.3L V6) has good torque. Has several nice features like power locks and windows. I was surprised to find it had heated mirrors (I wish my car had that). My only beefs so far are: 1) it turns like a boat for such a small vehicle 2) wheel travel is too short. I hit the bumpstops on a back road that I never had a problem with in my Subaru 3)build quality isn't so great. The dash squeaks and the seatback adjustment handles are broken off.

Best Features

Power remote heated adjustable mirrors. Torquey engine. Looks.

Worst Features

Longer wheel travel. Smaller turning radius. Improve build quality.
