2002 GMC Sonoma ZR2 4.3 from North America
B E A Utiful!
Minor repairs: All under warranty
Lower window seals popping up (3 times)
X Cab window seal cracked
CV Boot leak
Fuel return line clip (had truck towed)
One apparently recurring issue (so I'm told) with rear disk brakes, right inner pad goes fast and ceramic pads are not cheap at $165 a set.
If you're looking for a sport truck, don't buy this one. However, if you want a new off road machine without having to shell out extra to make it useful, the ZR2 is the right choice.
I've put 50000k's on in the last 14 months, and I wouldn't want to do it in any other truck. Comfortable and small enough for around town, but has a big mean truck feel.
Looks awesome and gets alot of looks with fiberglass ram air hood, huge stereo system, and aftermarket rims and tires (still running 31's). Add a K&N for a little extra boost!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Just a little update, my 02 ZR2 now has a snapped frame on l side and spider crackes on r side. It has NOT been abused be any means. It's going to GM this week so we'll see what happens. If your going to buy one, make sure to take a look first. I've come accross other instances of where this has happened.

I've had my '03 sonoma zr2 for over a year with over 20k miles, and have had no problems. I love the truck, and wouldn't trade it for anything! I even put on a 2 inch body lift! I plan to replace the 31 inch stocks to 33 inch meats. overall the truck does all that I would want it to do. its mean in the mud, and pulls like a mule. Thanks GMC for making a great truck!

I have had my '03 sonoma ZR2 for about 3 years now. About a month or so after purchase I also have noticed that my frame was cracked on both the left and right sides. I took it to the dealer and he told me it's from abuse although I have never abused it in any way. It's a great truck, but I guess it's got too much power for the frame (LOL).
