Bought it expecting trouble, and got less than I expected. A very nice truck
I purchased the car on a used car lot for $1000.00 as a project and gift to the wife, who always wanted a big red pick up truck, and this is what I found:
-Starter is grinding after starting, and needs replacement.
-Water pump leaks coolant, and wobbles, so it needs replacement
-Rust in passenger rear wheel well
-Rust on both sides of lower rear cab
-Rust just behind driver front wheel on lower fender.
-Rear seat will not stow properly
-Exhaust leak after cat
-crack in driver exhaust manifold
-Oil pan rot (research found this as common in early 90's)
I bought her as a project fixer upper.
Currently fixed and finished work on all the above except:
-crack in manifold
She looks great now, and I had to have a dealer replace the oil pan, because you have to lift the engine to replace it. That seemed silly to me, but when it is all said and done, if it only costs me 2k to have a working truck for the wife, and she likes it. Then I'm fine with it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
