I bought this truck new in late 1993.
It still just keeps going and going.
Very few problems, quality higher than
expected. Very good ride, more power
than I need. Engine & transmission
are still very smooth. I guess I'll
have it another 10 years.
I bought this car cheap and it's great.
The interior design is good, with a
large glovebox and wood panneling it's
very large and comfortable. The infinity
sound system is ambient with nice base
for stock. The V8 is powerfull but a bit
slow on the takeoff. It has a lot of
pulling power for the size of the truck.
The 4WD is great.It got me out of a
ditch in two feet of snow.The extended
cab is larger than one would expect.I've
put 50,000 of it's 143,000 miles on it
and I hav'nt had any engine or
transmission problems with it yet.(just
ware and tare stuff like hood latches
and brake callipers.) One of the most
comfortable and reliable cars I've ever
owned for so low a price.
This has been a reliable truck, with no major problems. Never had any engine or transmission work. It is a good balance between a car and a full-sized truck, especially if you don't need to pull a large trailer.
It really is a comfortable vehicle,
rides well and mine has every option
so it has neat toys. However the
build quality is terrible (such as my
headliner caving in, the paint falling
off, the interior fading to 4
differant shades of grey plus my
dashboard turning blue). It has been
driven hard and it is almost 10 years
old, so I do expect things to go
wrong... it just seems to happen more
often then it should. As for safety,
it's built like a tank... I wouldn't
even consider a 1997 or newer because
they are like tinfoil with plastic
bumpers. Overall, I will keep this
truck until I can get a nice old
Toyota Tundra Quad-Cab at a reasonable
im 15 and this truck was my first car
i bought it for 1500 on 11/12 with 156000 miles and counting.
it has a pretty good sized rust hole in the passenger door and is kind of loud. the gas guage doesnt work and the paint is peeling on the roof but is no prob, this truck pulls like a fullsize truck and i average about 12 mpg in the city. it is faster than anything weve owned and is more roomy than our ranger or our old s10. i wouldnt get rid of it untill i die. if you are looking for a used truck for around 2500, this is what you should get! but dont get any of the second generation ones, there junk.
