I have the 4 cylinder engine coupled
with a 5 speed transmission and could
not be happier with the truck to date.
Smooth shifting - good power - and
great gas milegage so far. If you are
thinking of the 4 cylinder engine - go
for the 5 speed manual as well, it's
the best pairing of engine and
transmission. Fit and finsh seem to
be excellent - especially for a used
truck with 65000 miles. No rattles to
this point - takes bumps well and seem
to be "screwed together" very tightly.
I'm getting about 28 MPG right now and
am very happy with that. Hauls a load
pretty well and sits low enough to the
ground to make loading the bed easy.
5 speed transmission - smooth and
Quiet engine for a 4 cylinder
Improved quality of seat handles - one
of mine is sheared off at the metal -
not the plastic handle.
