This truck is the best example of reliability ever
Seats were worn pretty badly when I bought them, but have not gotten worse since then.
I replaced the valve cover gaskets due to large amounts of oil leakage.
I replaced the starter.
The Headlight switch went bad causing my taillights to not work.
Both door handles have somewhat broke, but still open the door when manipulated correctly.
This truck has been an amazing first car.
I bought it because I had to have a car, and I am so glad I got this little truck.
Yeah there have been a couple problems, but over all, for the mileage, it drives incredibly. There are still some little problems like the doors sag, and minor rust spots that have not grown. There is one problem I cannot seem to get the engine to stop leaking oil so much. It loses about one quart per 1,000 miles. I am thinking of doing an engine rebuild to maybe remedy that.
As far as performance this truck is not very fast. It is a very small 6 cylinder so I never expected it to be great.
Gas mileage is decent when doing a lot of highway driving, but not so great in town. When I drove 60 mph and drove all highway (literally) I got 26 mpg. in town I get somewhere around 12-15 mpg. So it is quite a difference, but the big 20 gallon tank helps space out the fill ups.
Overall I love this truck and would buy another one if I found one with low miles so I would never have to buy another car!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
