No unusual problems. The drive shaft slip joint is starting to show some wear, causing a slight vibration at highway speeds.

The windshield leaks a little in the rain.

The truck gets 12 miles per gallon.

General Comments:

This truck just won't die. It hauls any amount of weight that you can fit in the bed, always starts no matter how cold, and has never left me stranded anywhere.

It is like riding a brick however, and aspirin should never be more than an arm length away.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
