General Comments:

The previous owner spent a lot of money on repairs before I bought it. If it was better quality it would be the perfect truck (veryroomy and comfortable). It has had almost every part replaced that you can think of in the past 4 years (former owner was a friend of mine), but it's such a handy truck I can't get rid of it.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
