I've had this truck for three years and
like it a lot. Mechanically the truck
is very solid with no issues with the
engine, transmission, cooling, heating,
steering, or brake systems. The 151 hp
engine feels weak when the bed is
loaded and air conditioner is on. Ride
is comfortable. The area behind the
seat is very handy for throwing those
extra things that seem to have nowhere
to go and there are two storage
compartments hidden underneath the
carpet. Great day-to-day vehicle.
Purchased as a play and haul vehicle.
Have been really pleased with the lack
of any major mechanical problems. Only
repair out of the ordinary has been the
air conditioner, which required around
$250 to fix. Doesn't have much power,
but the trade off is good gas mileage.
Has averaged about 20-21 in the city
and 26-27 highway. Low operating costs
and the ability to haul appliances,
ect. has made the vehicle a good buy.
