We bought this pickup because we needed a full size vehicle for use on the farm, and the family was growing and needed more leg room.
The extra cab interior and seats are top notch, and the vehicle rides and drives like a luxury car. The suspension is too soft however for any off road driving (maybe should have gotten a Z71?)
There has been a lot of nickel and dime stuff going wrong with the vehicle in the short time we've owned it, but we are hoping that once it is fixed it will stay that way for awhile. We did not have as many little things go wrong with the Nissan pickup that we sold with the same age and use.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Original reviewer here: We've had this truck for a year now and it has 125,000 miles. I'm happy to report that after fixing all of the little things wrong with it a year ago that it has been mostly trouble free. This truck is a pleasure to drive, very comfortable to seat four, and it has adequate power for hard work around the farm. The gas mileage has remained about 16mpg highway and it still uses 1 quart of oil between oil changes (3000 miles).

I have a 1992 GMC Sierra, it is pretty much the same truck.
It's a keeper :)
