If you like good looks, reasonably good fit and finish and a truck that starts every morning, then buy this truck. If you crave power and you don't like to deal with things like fixing brakes at 8,000 miles or replacing a good number of suspension components at 24,000 miles when you've never even taken it off road or outside the city limits of Saint Louis, then DO NOT buy this truck. The gas mileage is HIDEOUS considering the type of vehicle. Its not a full size truck yet gets the mpg of my 2001 F150 4x4 crewcab Lariat. Window sticker says 16/20. Right...more like 13/16. Also, the suspension creaks and the cruise won't hold on the slightest incline. Just too many annoying problems.
It looks nice and it rides pretty well for a truck. Stereo is not bad and it really has very little wind noise considering the roof rack. I like the fact that I got a lot of options for the money.
The cruise control is terrible, the suspension has issues, gas mileage is ridiculous and this truck has got the speed, handling and stability of a newborn calf.
