Right now I am approaching the end of
my first gas tank at 250 miles. That
says a lot so far. This thing is, no
doubt, a gas gusler. Other than that,
it seems like an intelligent purchase
for someone who needs a truck but does
not want to sacrifice a back seat. The
truck is stylish enough to be proud of
driving and gets the job done. I can
see myself making the following
changes, such as a Tanneu Cover, to
help gas mileage.
Very comfortable to drive. Good
initial pickup and torque on the
automatic. Stylish. Good base sound
system. Good visibility.
Need to rethink the CD holder in the
center console. Better mileage.
Center console could come out further
for arm resting. Don't like the
location of cruise control.
For my first New vehicle, I wanted
something that is versatile to all my
needs. I commute, I like to go "out",
I'm a camper/hunter/snowboarder, who
likes to "roll" with his "boyz". First,
this sucker can climb. The clearance is
nice and handy. It has the
solid/heftiness of the "american" made
trucks but doesn't have the bulkiness,
which came in handy MANY times while
4-wheelin'. The look turns heads, along
w/ the upgraded stereo. The 3.3L engine
is not enough for its weight. Rides
smooth and solid. I found it a little
difficult to make tight turns into
parking spots, especially with an
extended bed (gotta have the extended
long bed, limited slip diff w/ the sport
package, the stock clearance,
solid/hefty safe feel, upgraded stereo,
compactness and ability to get into
tight spots, and The "sexy" look.
bigger engine is a must (4.0+ pleeease),
better gas mileage (only gettin 15-16 on
the hwy right no), needs more rear
passenger room. Needs some storage room
in the back of the rear seats or
underneath. More wheel-well clearance
so you can put some "32's" on!.
