Summary:

Very reliable

Faults:

Fuel pump quit.

Ignition switch.

Cluster (digital dashboard) burned out.

Radiator cracked.

Interior shows a lot of wear and tear, but the truck is 17 years old.

General Comments:

Very reliable, only broken down twice. Once with the fuel pump, and once when the battery died.

I paid $3000 for it 5 years ago and it still runs strong, but at this point it's not worth paying 5-6 hundred dollars to fix any major problems on a truck this old.

Has had the least amount of issues of any used car I've owned.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

Have you had any problems with the starter? I went and bought a refurbished starter 16 months ago, and now I'm having problems with it. I can use any advice you can give me. My email is joewoodguy2009@hotmail.com

Yeah - don't buy rebuilt starters, and if you do, make sure it has a lifetime warranty. Also check connections from the starter to the battery. Check all wires for that matter, as they can rust or become corroded, and cause high resistance, which will restrict the flow of power to the starter motor.
