The truck was great for the first 6 years. I had one minor air conditioning repair at around the 2nd year. Then everything started falling apart. The AC began spewing out stinky liquid so the heater core had to be replaced, then the car wouldn't shift out of 2nd without manipulating the gas pedal so the solenoids in the transmission had to be replaced. I pull a 8000lb horse trailer a dozen times a year and when the truck is behaving, she pulls great. I don't think she liked being a commute vehicle.. sitting in bay area traffic I'm sure contributed to the wear and tear. The next truck I get I'm buying will definitely be a 4x4!! I got her stuck more than once.

Very pleased with this truck. I put 200,000 miles on it and the only major repair was a new injection pump at about 180,000 miles. 2 sets of Michelein tires, one set of new shocks, and one brake job. Great truck if your looking to go a long ways. Fuel economy was great with this truck with the Diesel motor and 5 speed tranny.
