I purchased this truck used with about 40,000 miles on it. Ten years later I have over 261,000 miles and its still running great. I have had to put a couple thousand into it but nothing major. Clutch, tires, brakes, etc. I am NOT good at getting the oil changed but that hasn't slowed it down any. Definitely have gotten my money's worth AND MORE out of this truck. I plan on driving it until it won't drive anymore and then give it a dignified funeral! :)
The fact I can, and HAVE hauled a LOT of stuff over the years. Overall reliability has been great.
My biggest complaint is it has no gumption whatsoever when going uphill (unless you have a running start) or driving against a strong headwind. Also, the best mileage I have managed to get is 20 MPG. I also have the permanent "CHECK ENGINE" light. It has been on non stop since about 50,000 miles!
