Owned this truck from new and man I wish I could get a new one when this ones time's up. About 110k and two repairs. One alternator at about75k ($250) and bad catalytic converter and tail pipe section about 110k ($400). Otherwise a great driving little truck.


Best Features

More power would be nice and better gas mileage (gets 27 to 30mpg which is good)

Review

This truck now has 118,000 miles on it. I bought it used when it had about 30,000 miles, and today it drives exactly the same as the day I bought it. I am a heavy driver, and I beat the living daylights out of this truck. I use it to haul heavy musical gear every weekend for shows approx. 200 miles round trip! The back is usually loaded to the hilt, and even with the 4-banger, I can hardly notice it's loaded. I have (in 5 years) replaced the serp. belt, radiator and drive-train control module. Everything else is original, and it looks new/used.


Best Features

5 speed, and nice AC makes it feel like a sports car. Handles like one, too. I love the turning radius!


Worst Features

If I buy another truck, I will get the extended cab and power windows.
