I owned this vehicle for almost 10 years
and put on about 180,000 miles during
that time. The truck left me on the
side of the road only twice in that
time. and then only for easily fixed
items (once was the water pump, and the
other the alternator). Considering the
time and mileage put into her the yearly
maintenance cost was minimal because
almost nothing ever broke.
The 2.5 L 4 cylinder engine combined
with the 5 speed manual transmission.
Gas Mileage was great for a truck, and
she would handle anything I put her through.
The ammenities that newer vehicles have
such as power steering, lock, and
windows. Interior redesign.
