I purchased this truck used with about 40,000 miles on it. Ten years later I have over 261,000 miles and its still running great. I have had to put a couple thousand into it but nothing major. Clutch, tires, brakes, etc. I am NOT good at getting the oil changed but that hasn't slowed it down any. Definitely have gotten my money's worth AND MORE out of this truck. I plan on driving it until it won't drive anymore and then give it a dignified funeral! :)
Original owner. Daily commute to work
vehicle. Have hauled everything from
topsoil and bedfull of mulch to
furniture and big screen TV. Very
dependable. Fun to drive. The 4cyl
gets good gas mileage and is no slouch
when paired with 5spd manual. Good
feel to the tranny/clutch combo.
Powerful a/c and heater. It is amazing
how popular you are with friends when
you are the one with the truck.
I have had no problems with my truck.
I was told to just keep the oil
changed and I would never have a
problem. Well they were right. I
have driven this truck hard, beat it
up and it still wants more! Great Truck
This is a good basic reliable compact
truck. I own the 4 cylinder 2.3L model
with a five speed.
For the higher elevations of Colorado
its a little underpowered, but around
town and the plains its fine.
A good quality truck.
