Review

Purchased 7 years ago. Currently has 120,000 miles. Previous owner did no maintenance. Few things had to be replaced. I love this pick-up. No squeaks or rattles. This is my daily driver and is also on second teenager driving. Everyone in the family loves to drive the truck. Also the oldest car we have! Replaced the std radio with CD/MP3 player and 4 speakers and MP3 connection. Gas mileage varies between 20 (city) and 25 (highway). Check Engine light is on half the time, but it goes away again. I just ignore it.


Favorite Features

Gas mileage, comfort, easy steering, reliability, space, etc.


Suggested Improvements

Slow, but with teenagers driving I should maybe move it to favourite feature!

Review

I've had this truck more than 10 years/136,000 miles, and it's still reliable. Changed the transmission myself @ ~ 100,000 miles for < $800 - hauled too much gravel for the wimpy 4-cyl. No leaks, no other major problems. Replaced power steering belt, repacked front bearings, headliner is falling apart, other than that, mostly just regular maintenance (oil, brakes, plugs & wires, etc.). I'm always amazed at how well it does in the woods in 4WD (as long as I don't need too much power). Hopefully I'll get 200+ out of it.


Suggested Improvements

20 MPG is pathetic for a vehicle that has about 130 hp, 4-cylinders, and weighs less 2 tons. Don't ever expect to pull much more than your kid's radio flyer with this truck. Oh well, can't have everything.
