I have had this truck for a few years. The only major maintenance was the starter. I have started to take it from LA to San Francisco. Tight fit on the inside. I agree I feel the bumps in the road. Mine is automatic and it is starting to feel rough in fourth gear.
Reliability, gas mileage, turning radius.
Same on on the smoothness, seats are rough on long rides, more interior room. I also have the squeaky suspension.
