Built to last


Replaced front rotors and brakes at 147K.

Carb had to be rebuilt at 160K.

Catalytic converter had to be replaced at 163K to pass smog check.

General Comments:

Bought it used at 147K miles.

Engine still runs strong and pulls well when loaded.

I only get about 18 miles per gallon on the street and 20 on highway.

Overall it's a reliable, well built truck, when the carb failed the engine ran very rough, but kept going for about 2 weeks before I had it fixed.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
