Better options/trim/dealer better than
Ford. The Frontier is cheesy while the
Tacoma & S10 are getting really old.
The B2300/5 speed will leave the
B3000/auto in the dust. It cruises at
80 up mountain passes easily. Great
mileage--about 25 city/30 hwy. The
B2300 is a bargain. It's quiet &
comfortable, the interior is similar to
a $30k Explorer and it pulls strongly
to nearly 6000rpm yet loafs along at
about 3000rpm at 80mph. Its a great
light duty truck! The guy complaining
about the A/C must not have driven many
4 cylinders with A/C or something is
wrong with his. You can tell when the
AC cycles but it's not obvious.
Eager DOHC 4 cylinder, quiet, comfy
interior, decent CD stereo at no extra
charge, reliable, a bargain.
Engine gets a bit noisy above 4000rpm
but it's still quieter than anyone
competing 4 cylinder truck.
