It's slow, but strong and steady, and reliable
Water pump replaced at 90k.
Rear springs sag.
Small rust spots on the tail gate door.
Paint faded last year.
Difficult shift to 2nd when cold.
Exhaust gasket makes a noise when accelerating.
Transfer case leaks.
Seal between tranny and engine leaks.
It's hard to start, but runs like a champ -- a slow, but strong champ...
Tows anything without a problem. Loads of torque, but not much revs.
Original 1985 A/C blows cold! Easy to adjust the valves.
Driver's seat is made for Japanese midgets -- too close and too high for me.
I get thumbs up from teenagers! Must be doing something right.
Understeers like crazy, and rolls a lot, but overall good handling.
Has held up very well for a 28 year old truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
