I have had this truck for a little over 2 years now and am very happy with it. I bought it with 30,000 miles on it and it now has 64,000. I have not had one problem with it and it still has the original tires. All that I do is oil changes. I currently get around 26 to 27mpg in mainly city driving. I have gotten as high as 33mpg on the highway before (55- 60mph). You can easily get upper 20's. Don't expect a lot of power from this truck but compared to the S-10 it does seem to have more get up and go. This is awesome basic transportation and I probably will drive it into the ground.
Nice sounding stereo for a base model. It blares and sounds great. I replaced mine only so I could get a CD player but I kept the factory speakers. Nice large cup holders with inserts for smaller glasses or Coke cans. Handles decent for a truck and gets great gas mileage.
Well I'm pretty satisfied with my truck and for the money I paid for it I can't really think of any improvement that I wish it had.
