I now have owned the truck for 9 months and have almost 11,000 miles on it. I am still very pleased with this economical, reliable everyday truck. I'm still getting 19-20 mpg in everyday driving (even when running the a/c), with 26-27 mpg on trips (at 70-75 mph, no less). The only repairs it has needed in 11,000 miles are a new driver's seat cushion (to fix loose upholstery) and a new HVAC control head (to fix a temperature knob that wouldn't go all the way). Other than those two minor things, it's been completely reliable. I'm a very satisfied owner, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the truck based on my own experience.
Good gas mileage. Very reliable. Big enough to be useful but small enough to be affordable. CD player plays MP3 CD's.
Still wish cruise control switches were on the steering wheel. Turning circle is huge! Doors sometimes have to be shut more than once to close properly. More power would make trailer towing easier, but I don't need it if it comes at the expense of gas mileage.
