Review
Purchased in 99 with 22k miles. While it has never broken down once, the smaller problems are really annoying. Interior lights will not go out. Truck will hardly run on 87 octane so we use 93 always. Has the small 4 banger which has 8 spark plugs, only 4 of which I can get to without removing the intake manifold. Rear suspension design is so poor that a moderate size bump will throw the truck into the other lane. Everyone I know with this truck has these same problems. Now at 104K miles, it needs new front wheel bearings. CD player quit at 35k. I don't understand why Edmunds has this truck in its "Top Ten" list.
Favorite Features
Styling. Reliable drivetrain.
Suggested Improvements
A recall on the interior light issue. Complete redesign of the rear suspension.
