Review

Bought this truck 5 years ago with 31,000 miles. I now have over 200,000 miles as I commute 200 a day to work and home. No major work preformed except for tires, oil changes, brakes and clutch (at 180,000 mile). Truck is comfortable for my daily trips. I average 30 miles per gallon on the highway with a standard tranny. Dependable truck!!


Best Features

Extended cab had great leg room and seat that recline. A/C work like a champ to this day.


Worst Features

Horsepower without giving up mileage.

Review

Truck purchased new in 2-99; traded in a
buzzy bouncy crappy '98 regular cab
Toyota Tacoma. What an upgrade! I love
this truck. It has the 4 cylinder
engine; as such acceleration is not
comparable to gas guzzling V8's. BUT,
go west of Kerr County where a 75 MPH
speed limit is common. 85MPH in 5th
with 24 MPG is no problem with this high
revving 16 valve engine. Engine is
exceptionally smooth and quiet at speed.
Throw away the OEM Firestones and OEM
shocks. Buy 4 Bridgestone AT Revos tires
and Gabriel Max-Control shocks. Then,
enjoy this inexpensive and extraordinary
tough little truck. I do.


Best Features

Cruise control with steering wheel control. High fuel economy at "driving 'cross Texas" speed. Nice metallic green factory paint & graphics. Ability to operate when grossly overloaded (1900 lbs) or when pulling a trailer with a 3700 lb John Deere 1010 RUS tractor.


Worst Features

Seat needs to go back another 4-6 inches for 6'3" driver. 5-speed manual tranny very notchy when cold. A locking tailgate and gas filler door would defeat local Houston crackheads who took my tailgate. I now have a $29 web tailgate truck; a replacement tailgate is too expensive.

Review

This truck has been reliable in the
sense that it has not broken down. But
I have had many problems with the
front end (loose torsion bar, sway bar
end links breaking loose 3 times). Now
my steering needs an alignment. I took
it to Foothill Nissan to have my
automatic transmission serviced and
they overfilled it, causing it to leak
all over the undercarriage. My driver
side window has always rattled. The
windows fog up easily (unlike other
trucks I have had). Heat always comes
out of the vent, even when you have it
on cold. The front fenders dent
easily. It is a really great looking
truck, but I think they need to work
on the quality.


Best Features

I like the look of this truck. The bed was designed really well. Rear anti- locking brakes (standard). Reclining bucket seats.


Worst Features

Strengthen up the fenders and front- end. Work on the window design and fix the heat problem coming from the vent (most likely the vent duct is routed near a heat source). Stiffen up the front end so it is not so bouncy.
