Review

Have owned my truck for 6 years now; have had only a few minor electrical problems (display on digital clock is a little funny, interior lights delay a couple of seconds before going off upon door closing). A/C continues to work well. At 68,000 miles, still have the original brake pads and shoes. Sound system is also very impressive for a truck, as is the interior design. The truck still rides like a car - no wierd rattling noises or squeeks are present.


Best Features

Sound system, instrument cluster, 3 power points, cloth seats, reliability.


Worst Features

Minor electronic problems with module (known problem, nothing that affects the drive system), standard engine a wee bit small for this truck.

Review

Truck ran great for the first three years, then just about after the warranty ran out the check engine light came on. In the shop multiple times, damn thing just runs rough. Mileage sucks, too. Only about 15 mpg...and that's highway fellas!


Worst Features

Buy a Chevy
