I bought this thing on an impluse and had a nice surprise. I replaced the timing belt and this thing is like a new truck! Plenty of power, quiet inside and amazingly reliable. Electrical can be a little squirrely, so get a pro for that. Sound system is great. Mine has a cloth interior and still looks amazing for it's age. All this for $1000. What a deal.
The radiator fan makes this roaring sound when starting up and running in low gear. Silly, I know. But it gets a lot of looks. The square corners and smart-looking lighting really stand out in the "sea of fishbowls" you see around these days.
MPG could be better. I get 17 city and 21 highway.
