An extremely reliable vehicle from the
day I drove it of the lot. Very limited
repairs needed over the 5.5 years I
have owned it. Ask your mechanic about
these 4.3 liter Vortec V6 engines,
he'll tell you that they are built for
the long haul. I tow my 19' Sea Ray,
haul mulch, furniture, and anything
else that will fit in the bed, and
racked up about 60,000 miles the first
2 years working the MD/VA territory -
all highway, and I don't baby this
truck. It still runs like the day I
drove it off the lot.
Headlight sensor turns lights on
automatically. SCV setting on the radio
automatically adjusts the volume to
compensate for road noise. Push button
4WD, couldn't be any easier to switch
back and forth. Good power for a small
truck and built very solid.
I know we're talking 4WD, but I'd like
to see gas mileage come up from the 15
mpg it averages. Handles for reclining
seats have each stripped out twice. In
case of serious medical emergency, I
would like to see the governor set
higher than 90 mph.
