I purchased this truck from my grandma after it had been sitting in her garage for a couple of years with only 65,000 miles on it. It is very rusty underneath so whenever I have to get something replaced it is usually more costly because of all the rust. It starts every time without hesitation. However, whenever it is cold out, the accelerator gets stuck unless the vehicle is warmed up before it is driven which is annoying and dangerous. I just have to remember I am driving a slow car so I give myself extra space to pull into traffic. Despite all this, the truck is a thrifty little one and does every thing I ask so I don't have too much to complain about.
My Pup has 259,000 miles on it. The only items replaced have been maintenance items (timing belt, brakes, etc.) except for an alternator and thermostat. The alternator went out after 245,000 miles. Seats need cleaning but are in great shape. Still gets 26 mpg in urban driving conditions. Got almost 28 mpg on a recent road trip and was hauling a bed load of heavy potted plants. Love my Pup!
I bought this truck two years ago. It
had 150000 miles. I have put 50
thousand miles on it. It refuses to
die. I gave up on driving it into the
ground and am going to let someone else
try. It is a bare bones truck, tight an
It starts up every morinig, and never
come back to this design versus instead
of the S-10 Look alike.
It has been a very dependable truck ,
have owned it since 94 , it is a 91
model has over 115000 trouble free
miles so far. All original , no major
mechanical problems . Would rate
overall as an excellent investment as a
used truck purchase.
