What to Know

1st Generation Sonoma’s and S-10’s were GM’s first successful step into the small size pickup market. They have spartan interiors, boxy styling, and a “trucky” feel. They only have single and extended cabs in either 2wd or 4wd.

Common Issues

Body Rust – 20 year old trucks will rust. Check door corners, cab corners and quarter panels. Rust spreads, so take that into mind when negotiating.

Fuel Pump – As expected with 80’s and 90’s GM vehicles, the fuel pumps have a tendency to fail. Expect to spend around $700-1000 to have it replaced at a shop, or around $100-200 for the pump to replace yourself.
