ReviewWas in the shop twice for tranny
problems. The first time was the day
after I bought it - O-ring installed
improperly. The second time a spool
valve needed replaced (made tranny
noisy in reverse). Also, the FM section
of the Infinity stereo comes and goes.
Actually, no major problems. I plan on
keeping it for many years.
Best FeaturesLooks and handling. Drives like a car, although ride is much harsher - which is to be expected. Also the 360 V8 gives over 18 mpg on the highway at freeway speeds (and above). If you're 6' or over, the truck has plenty of room, so you don't have to spend extra for an extended cab.
Worst FeaturesMore low-end torque for the 360 engine. Accelerates great above 35 mph, but below that it's a dog. Truck has 3.55:1 posi differential. 3.90:1 would be better for around town.
