Recommended load lugger, but thirsty
Exhausts, only rear sections!
Gearbox - input bearings fail, cheap to replace, but very difficult.
Power steering - seal failed (2).
Seats badly worn & uncomfortable after a while.
Rear axle whines, gearbox not shifting smoothly.
Starting to rust around sills, the rest is immaculate.
Loved this truck! Bought it cheaply and drove it everywhere, so reliable. Problems started to appear so sold it.
Fuel economy reasonable - 25-28 MPG, only room for 2 people.
I could thrash this truck like a rented mule, and it always came up smiling.
Parts not expensive, some dealers good, others bad. Parts interchangeable with loads of other Mitzi's and Dodges. I would recommend this, but buy one with a diesel engine.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
