Was expecting perfection, so far from it

i will say that I enjoy driving the truck when it's not at the dealer with issues. has a real nice sound, but the 4 speed transmission makes an alarming jerky upshift at about 30 kph. horribly unreliable. definitely a money pit. the dealer really doesn't care and screws me over by saying they didn't find anything and charge me $70 labor every time. truck's left me stranded more times than necessary. had it in for dead battery every morning and the truck has been in for the cylinder deactivation system not kicking back to 8 cylinders when needed. auto rear locking differential wouldn't unlock. overall, should've done my research and paid a bit more for a Ford.
looks nice, black interior, auto 4x4
quality control, get rid of the horrible thumpy drivetrain and make a better extended cab structure. put baffles in the gas tank and redo the seats so they maintain comfort after 5000 miles.
