This has been a very reliable vehicle
which I brought as an alternate vehicle
for the winter to access my steep
driveway in the winter. I once had a
vistor who had a Nissan four wheel
drive pickup that was comparable....and
she got stuck....I was able to drive my
mazda past her truck and then tow her
to the top of my drive in 8 inches of
snow on top of ice....
the power and ability to pull out of
any weather/muddy condition..
I've had this truck for 3 years. It had
belonged to my son who needed a larger
vehicle. He put 97,000 miles on it in 4
years. I've put 10,000 on it in 3
years. The only thing I dislike about
it is the loss of power when I when the
AC is engaged and the constant thump
you get when the AC clutch engages. In
my opinion, this is its only fault. It
has been and continues to be an
A really smooth 5 speed transmission.
Compared with my 1988 Ranger, this
Do something about the AC power robbing
and the loss of power that happens when
the air conditioner clutch engages.
