ReviewOverall, a very fine quality product. Fun to drive. Very solid. Have 5500 miles on it. 4.7 V-8 is very quiet,powerful;I get 15 mpg around town (the same as my old '94 Nissan 4X4 3 litre V-6 pickup. I have TRD, but prefer a more "taunt - supple" -ride. Very roadable and stable tho in cross winds. Very quiet at highway speeds; But where my left elbow and left knee rest on door is cheap fabric. Already shows wear. Right armrest is fabric and will soil easily. Wear areas shold be vinyl. Tranny, or driveline, "bumps" on downshift coming to a stop, even 3 - 8 seconds after stop. Dealers say "they all do it". Hope it's durable!
Best FeaturesQuiet, powerful engine, smooth transmission, (except downshift "bump"). Gets good gas mileage for it's size and power. Good handling and steering. Tight body. Nice styling. Good tow capacity - 7600 #.
Worst FeaturesArmrests and "knee" rest areas should be vinyl. Redesign tranny and/or drive line to eliminate "thump" on downshift. Make the ride less "cushy" - more "taunt -and supple". Add lights on power door lock or passenger window switches. Make roomier, more comfortable, rear seat.
