very reliable truck with good
power.base model has all the features
you would expect and then some. not
quite enough leg room in the back seat
for adults but plenty for children.
much better ride than older model
center console cup holders
This is truck for truck guys, unless you
need it to haul stuff and go off road on
a regular basis there are more car like
options (like cars and those danged
SUVS). It needs better brakes and a new
engine not to mention better paint and
more room in the back as well as better
NVH insulation among other things. On
the other hand its cheap, tough as
nails, very utilitarian and looks good.
Plus its loaded and will last forever,
has very low maintenance and retains its
residual value way better than Ford,
Chevy, GMC or Dodge (not as much as the
Wide number of body configurations and
styles, no nonsense options list,
arguably best looker out there, hard as
nails, very utilitarian, cheap, fuel
economy better than expected, only
compact with crew cab AND long box (very
handy), good deals abound, 2005 version
is even better
More power, better fuel economy, more
room, better paint, more NVH insulation
The truck is very nice looking but the
gas milage is poor!!!! I drove 1160
miles on it and put almost 97 gals. of
gas in it! 3300-3500 rpm at 75mph!
and thats with the 5 speed and 3.3
ltr. not recommended for alot of
traveling! But it will fit a family of
4 in it nicely and the interior layout
is very nice! ride is a little harsh
but what truck isnt!
The exterior!!! Great styling! The
interior layout is good and the rear
cup holders serve their porpuse!
All models should come with tilt!
Factory floor mats seem alittle cheap!
and the dash lights are not that bright
at night. Some more support for body
roll would be nice and even support for
those windy days would help! Front
seat belt height adjuster could use
