I am overall pleased with my truck.
The 2.5L four cylinder is a dog and
lacks sufficient power that you want in
a truck, but that's the trade off for a
25MPG truck. The interior is friendly
and quiet, although some of the
materials are cheap. My only real
complaint is that the rear end is far
too light and the suspension "jumps" on
rough roads and tends to feel that I am
loosing control of the truck. The rims
also require a special wheel balancer
due to desing flaws.

Best Features

The truck is overall a quality item. It's fun to drive and despite some minor issues it's a great truck.

Worst Features

Re-design the rear suspension to feel more stable. Give the four cylinder some guts.
