I have owned this 2WD truck for 8
years. It has outlasted two of my
wife's Grand Caravan. Every morning
Iturn the key, put it in gear, and go
to work. Except when I fill it with
hundreds of pounds of Scout gear and 2-
4 Boy Scouts. I am not easy on this
truck, but I change the oil, keep it
lubed, and wash it 2-3 times a month.
The only rust on it is both doors have
surface rust, 1/2" x 6" along the
bottom, and one rear fender lip where
the previous owner bumped a tree. I
have 3 boys all 6' or more. It is
tight, but we can still squeeze in to
The ride is outstanding. The ride has
always been very good. It, shifts
smoothly, and just goes. Good in the
snow. The seats are comfortable on
camping trips.It hauls 1/2 ton very
well. The Chrysler sound system is so
nice I never considered anything else.
It is easy to work on.
My only beef is the gas milage. I got
between 18 & 22 mpg mixed (mostly
highway). When I got close to 100,000
the milage has dropped to 14 - 16,
same. Several proffessionals have tune-
up the engine and tweeked to tranny, it
will not do better than 16 mpg.
