When I first tried to drive this truck
off the lot I put it in reverse and
let out the clutch and heard the gears
grinding. I went back in and told the
dealer that there is something wrong
with the transmission. Oh no, he says,
that is normal, you have to wait 6
seconds after you put it in reverse
before you can let out on the clutch.
That is the biggest beef I have with
this truck. I have the 2.2L, 4 cyl.
and the head gasket went at about
85,000. Other than that it has been
very reliable. The truck can be a
handful to drive, especially around
sharp turns and exit ramps at highway
The seats are very comfortable and the
interior is very quiet with no rattles
