I bought the SE in 2002 with 22,000 miles and now it has 132,000 miles. No major problems at all! Regular oil changes and new tires and shocks, it rides like its brand new. Its very agile around sharp turns and very capable on washed out roads. A K&N air filter gives it more power. Regular easy maintenance keeps it running and running. Its very reliable, everything is working correctly. Lack of power but the 3.3L V6 is very easy to maintain, very reliable. I love this truck.
Bose system sounds great, drives good off road even with 2WD. Handling is great, very easy and comfortable to drive. The exterior styling is aggressive. Paint still shines like new. Very reliable engine.
More power but K&N filter solves that. Gas consumption in the city is ok but can be better.
