It is a great surf truck, it takes your beer and your boards and your friends to the beach, on to the beach, across the beach and back from the beach. It has 180k miles on it and the saltwater is rather quickly taking its toll, but I'll probably buy another when the repair bill is no longer worth fixing the one I've got. The door handle thing is annoying (I just roll the windows down and open it from the outside) some 4 door parts are expensive and/or hard to find (muffler and brake master cylinder specifically) It is a great basic truck, it isn't for the cayenne crowd, it is for someone who would like a basic 4wd truck that you can pick up cheap and have some fun with
4wd it is actually pretty good. I can follow a Tacoma anywhere, sometimes I have to be a little more careful, the Sidekick is better in deep sand, room for 4 friends and some beer it's basic, so stuff doesn't break too often and is fixable if it does. My dog likes sticking her head out the window
Interior door handles are dependent on the plastic cover thing! Which engineering intern designed that bit of brilliance?
