It takes a beating, but keeps on ticking
The clutch was replaced almost immediately after it was purchased costing close to $250.00 to fix.
The driver seat has significant wear.
Control knobs are easy to remove.
This truck has been a real treat to own. I have had no major mechanical problems. This is extraodinary considering I almost drove this vehicle for 10,000 miles without the changing the oil (one a regular bases. I really abused this truck. I never did routine mainetance and constantly went on long road trips. The body was in excellent condition, however I really neglected the mechanical mainetance. Through it all I only experienced normal wear and tear to the interior.
It was not the most comfortable vehicle to drive, but what do you expect from a 4x4.
Due to tops on these trucks (soft top) it is easy to break into. I had my "Best Top" stolen in my own yard, even with the alarm on. The canvas top was about $450.00 to replace.
My truck did not have an air condition motor in it when I purchased it, which made the summers almost unbearable even with the top off.
The one thing I really liked about my Amigo is it is easy to make it stand out. With the right accessories this can be a mean looking little SUV. I had a brush guard, Nerf bars, custom rims and some aggressive tread tires. It was sharp looking.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
