Get one for around the house and crappy winter days!!


Broken leaf spring mount.

Passenger seat has a broken recline mechanism.

General Comments:

The engine is absolutely a rocket, dependable, and starts at -35C.

The fuel mileage is... well... substantial, 16-18 L/100Km, but what can you do, I didn't get the truck to save the planet.

It works awesome during the winter, which is why I bought it, as a winter beater, and the heater is a furnace.

Great all around truck, I'd highly recommend one to anyone.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
