I had to replace my Audi with a truck for work purposes. I was expecting to be disappointed but this truck has exceeded my expectations. It has decent horsepower and torque. Handles well in snow (with four sand bags and studs), stereo sounds good, Sport package has nice options. Not the most comfortable ride but the truck can carry a decent load.
The performance of the truck. I beat an A4 3.0 from a stop light last week. The manual transmission is crucial for mountain and snow driving. The extra cab has decent room. Clutchless start is nice option for off roading. AC plug works great for tailgating.
4WD has problems engaging while driving. Poor gas mileage. CD changer died within 3 months. Bumpy ride and lots of small plastic pieces falling off interior. Tailgate became loose. Headlights seem to blind everyone. Stock tires are terrible. Offer some seat heaters, headlight cleaners and a sunroof.
