I bought the pickup at 170,000 miles less than a year ago. It has the 2.4 L 22re engine in 2wd, with a manual trans. The engine, transmission, rear end, and drive line are all original other then routine maintenance parts. (Belts, spark plugs, etc.) The pickup runs perfectly, always starts on the first try, and I know that I can depend on it. Even though it is 20 years old, the interior is pretty nice. The seats are comfortable, and have a large range of movement for different sized drivers. It is a perfect truck for anyone. May be used for tons of different functions with ease. Daily driver, farm, work, etc.
I bought this truck brand new and have had no major problems with it in over 13 years and 260,000 miles! It is even on the original clutch (it's a 5 speed and I'm a woman ) I love it and don't want to ever give it up!
This truck is fully upgradable, lacks power with stock intake/exhaust sytem. Especially lacks power with 3" lift kit with 31" or bigger tires, but can be remedied for around $1000.00. I presently have 140,000 miles on it and have no major (or minor) engine leaks or annoying sounds. The frame and body are in great condition, especialy for living in New England. I will never get rid of this truck!
