Review

I am overall pleased with my truck. The 2.5L four cylinder is a dog and lacks sufficient power that you want in a truck, but that's the trade off for a 25MPG truck. The interior is friendly and quiet, although some of the materials are cheap. My only real complaint is that the rear end is far too light and the suspension "jumps" on rough roads and tends to feel that I am loosing control of the truck. The rims also require a special wheel balancer due to desing flaws.

Favorite Features

The truck is overall a quality item. It's fun to drive and despite some minor issues it's a great truck.

Suggested Improvements

Re-design the rear suspension to feel more stable. Give the four cylinder some guts.
