General Comments:

This is my first car and I've had it for 3 years and have had to put very little money into it.

It has a lot of horsepower to get off the line with, I have put many ricers to shame.

The 350 can definitely take a beating.

The interior is one of the most comfortable interiors I have been in.

The sound system is great for a truck.

I put a 50 series flow master on it and it makes the truck sound very very very nice.

This is a great starter vehicle!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
