I bought this truck almost 5 years ago
primarily to tow a 16' boat. I also
rented and towed a tent trailer with
it. There aren't too many vehicles,
other than SUVs or pickups that are
suitable for towing. It did a fine job
at towing the boat and trailer.
To date I have put about 44,000
kilometers on the truck with virtually
no problems (other a fuel pump
replacement). I no longer have the boat
but will keep the truck as it has
turned out to be a very practical and
I now have 128,000 kilometers on it. I
expect it'll go to 300,000+ kilometers.
I would definitely recommend this
Good power, comfortable, easy to
maneuver. Cruise control, A/C, 4 wheel
drive. Reliable. Nice looking.
Remove the wiper operation from the
turn signals. Sometimes the wipers come
on when using the turn signal.
Modify design for rear window defrost.
The wire breaks easily where it
attaches to the window.
Improve ability of truck to resist rust.
