ReviewI have owned this vehicle since May of 2010 when it had 23k miles. So far my only problems have been: a leaky (rain water) center cab brake light which had a defective seal and had to have all the carpet changed; the blower fan on the a/c got to where it only blew on high and would not work on other speeds; and a new battery. Other minor things: brakes squeak severely each morning that the relative humidity is over 70% which is about every morning in the New Orleans area, the fuse for the driving lights burns out fairly regularly, and the cab light won't come on when you open any door. Windows whistle when driving into a strong wind. Sometimes the cruise control is difficult to engage.
Best FeaturesGood fuel mileage on the highway, not great around town but ok. Everything is fairly easy to get to/accessible. Most parts are reasonably priced. I get good comments about the rolling message center on the am/fm radio that tells the name of the group and the song being sung. The owner of the mechanic shop continually wants to buy it from me every time I come in, for his own personal use. Does not break down as often as my past '99 Dodge.
Worst FeaturesAll p/u trucks should have side window visors to allow you to let your window down while parked to enable air flow on hot days, without it being obvious that the windows are down. All p/u trucks should come with a three ball rotating trailer hitch and a built in electrical plug to plug trailer lights. All p/u trucks need two cigarette lighter/accessory plugs in the front. Install brakes that don't squeak due to humidity. Install two horns, one regular, one klaxton with a toggle switch on the dash. Improve the center brake light so it won't leak. Improve the fan motor. Improve the cab light and the driving light electrical system.
