In all honesty it is one of the best all around cars you can buy, and cheap too! The acceleration is not bad for what it is, the teams is fantastic!! I beat on mine all the time and if you do nessesitys to maintain it will hold up forever! Mine has 220,000 miles and runs strong, only repairs are on the clutch and breaks, very solid, pretty safe is you drive normally, surprisingly hard to flip! Reliable fun, relatively safe and 25+ mpg!!
I would not recommend this vehicle for
anyone with small children or anyone
that plans to be using it on long road
trips. The ride is so bumpy and on
long trips it can get very
uncomfortable. If I had to do over I
would buy something more expenisve with
a smoother ride and something that was
quieter on the highway.
I like this truck. My other is a
4Runner, so it's hard to expect too
much from this one. However, I'm still
pleased with my purchase. The manual 4-
cylinder is fun to drive, but lacks
some power; only 143hp. The interior
with power option package is of
average quality but does the job. The
exterior has a simple but rugged
personality. On the 4-cylinder,
expect to see about 3200 RPM while
doing 70mph on the highway; maybe
contributing to the somewhat
disappointing gas mileage.
Fairly good price for what you get.
Rugged enough to tacke real trails.
Rides high, good road visibility.
Don't expect too much of a luxury car
feel, this truck is a little rough.
Also, gas mileage needs
improvement...even on the 4-cylinder.
