Review

Chronologically, we have had to
repair/replace:

-tranny (1 week after purchase)
-transmission valve body
-Throttle body
-New keyless entry keypad
-Air sensor (once it fails you are
rewarded with an exhilirating 30 minute
period during which the truck will not
start)
-Fuel Pump
-Throttle body
-New tires (the original firestones
had a nasty tendency to kill you)
-Ball Joints (No grease points. if
they ever need grease, they need to be
replaced. Top notch!)

Currently, I am eagerly anticipating
having to replace another throttle
body, as the car stalls every so often
now, and well, it has been 10,000 miles
since I replaced it. I guess it's time.

Best Features

towing package, decent styling.

Worst Features

see above. this truck is a joke.
