Summary:

For comfort and pulling power, it can't beat it

Faults:

After 2 months, the fuel pump was changed, and the water pump and wheel bearings were replaced; not bad given the miles at purchase.

General Comments:

Slow off the line and not great on gas, but I knew that going in through research. But I would drive this truck anywhere. Never had a more reliable truck with so much pulling power.

This truck is also a money maker; you can pull almost any size trailer to make some good side money or have your own business, which is the reason I bought it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
