2001 GMC Sonoma SLS 4.3L Vortec from North America
Glad I bought it!
Stabilizer bar in 2011.
Steering box is worn.
Radiator replaced at 125000.
Transmission rebuilt under warranty at 45000.
Compressor in 2009.
4X4 solenoid in 2007.
Mileage has dropped to about 14 MPG, depending on the driver.
This has been a great truck; excellent in what little snow we get.
It has survived 3 teenage male drivers.
Still has pretty good get-up-and-go considering its age.
Have always used synthetic oil, minimal oil consumption.
We use it daily for transportation to colleges.
Both the A/C and heat work VERY well.
Tires last longer than advertised, probably due to the weight of the truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Just bought an 01 Sonoma 4.3 and it has 263000 miles as of now. Still cranks and drives like a beauty. I got a dang good deal on it for 350$ and it's well worth 1200$. All I have to do is probably the fuel filter, the driver's window and the passenger back brake cylinder. Other than that, the truck is still iron heart at 260000 plus miles. I like this thing.
