I love this truck! I bought it in Jan
of 2002 with 98,000 miles on it. I put
25,000 miles on it in the following
year and have been nothing but
pleased. I did have to have the clutch
worked on which set me back about
$500, but that has been the only
maintenance in over 28,000 miles. This
truck is fun to drive, does great in
4WD, has enough room in the extended
cab to either store a lot of gear, or
take two people on a short trip. Would
definitely buy it again if given the
chance. Also seems to have more cab
room than the Tacoma.
Comfort and Reliability. This truck is
fun to drive and doesn't wear you out,
even on a 3000 mile trip to Texas.
More torque. They have improved the hp
a bit in the newer versions, but it
needs a bit more torque.
Stay away from this one. I have owed
this truck for 4 years and have had
nothing but problems. I have spent
over 4000 dollars on repairs to this
truck in the time I have owed it. The
four wheel drive system is the worst
design ever and plan on going through
brake pads every 20000 miles.
The look of this truck is my favorite
thing about it.
