I drove this truck for 7 months with NO problem..purchased it with 125k miles, it was so convenient, and wasn't that bad on gas even though when i bought it the truck hadn't been taken care of, with an oil change, and tune up ran like a dream, got around in our bad winter here with no problem at all, I had to sell it due to financial situation, and SO badly miss it, am actually looking for another one, this was the first one I'd ever owned but am now an Explorer fan, my sister has one the same year, with 226k miles and never hesitates to drive it all over the country. AWESOME truck!
