I bought this truck used in 1993, and
have never regretted it. It has NEVER
failed me. It has outstanding
traction, I have even pulled a Toyota
with bigger tires out of a mud hole I
had just gone through. The only
repairs I have done are Brakes,
Battery, Tires, Shocks, Ball joints,
the usual wear items, nothing serious.
The truck is rated 18 city, 20
highways, but I average 22-24 mpg. I
would love to buy a new one but
unfortunately now they are rebadged
Ford Rangers JUST NOT THE SAME!!!!!!
Smooth running conterbalanced cherry of
an engine, and the excelent working 4x4
system. Front facing jump seats "my
kids love them!". Biggest Extended cab
in those years, smooth ride, especially
compared to those Yotas.
RUST. The truck will never wear out
but rust will be the end of it. Wish
the Japanese didn't use junk recycled
metal. But so far I have only had to
patch hole in the bed, cab is holding
