Was a bit skeptical upon purchasing vehicle. The two American vehicles I owned previous were junk, including a Ford Taurus. Bought for the straight six motor. Proved to be a very reliable vehicle. I drove it only sporadically because it was my 2nd vehicle. Started up everytime, even during the coldest New England mornings. I replaced the battery and oil pan during the time I owned it (both were pretty old). Was just about as reliable as my '93 Honda Civic. I'm kicking myself for selling it, I would buy another in a heartbeat.

At 144,000 I still have not had an
engine problem - it still runs like
new. I had to replace the
transmission at 130,000 miles, but I
do tow a heavy trailer all the time, so I
think that's to be expected. In fact, my
trailer is heavier than this truck is
rated for, and the truck seems fine
with this! Everything electrical is still
working fine. I had to replace the
serpantine belt at around 70,000
miles. It currently needs a new
exhaust manifold, as it has cracked
and is making noise, but no big deal.
Overall, this truck has been more
reliable than I expected it to be.
