This is the best truck I have ever had, and I am mad I lost my job and had to sell it. When I find a new one, I will grab that up as fast as I can.

Summary:

A reliable (if maintained) little truck

The seats are a little torn.

I had a brake line leak.

The transmission was a little shaky for a while.

Leaked oil and power steering since about 20,000 miles.

General Comments:

It is the most reliable vehicle my family has ever seen and borrowed.

I got it for nothing and have put $120 into it. Best deal ever!

My dad was the first owner, and he put about $1000 into it, give or take $100. This is the best vehicle we have ever owned.

Those slant six engines were one of the best engines they made. They will last forever!
