What can go wrong will! After owning it approximately 2-months the headlight switch failed…..again (the previous owner had the switch changed once already), that resulted in a trip to the shop and a bill for $200.00.
The fuel shut off solenoid (failed 100 miles from home), this resulted in a new one at the cost of $425.00 and that is just for the part. (Does not include the labor)
Next came the starter, it failed at a cost of $200, again just for the part, it does not include the labor.
Next came the front u-joints and seals, this resulted in numerous trips to the dealership due to the fact they did not change the seals at the time of the u-joint repair causing extra trips to the dealer in addition to more days without our vehicle. Luckily this was covered under an extended warranty, deductible $200, actual cost on the billing $699.
I almost forgot it received new valve cover gaskets because they were leaking and repaired a recalled item on the brake power booster.
Not even one month later, reverse gear went out (automatic transmission) at 83,200 miles. The reverse clutch housing broke. It was a gray area with the extended warranty, but they did cover it this time we paid $325 out of pocket and the total bill was $2,794.
Now the rear end, it’s barely over 3 months since it was in the shop and the rear end has problems. It’s been diagnosed at costing $600-$1500, it just depends, could be more could be less. We have found out this is typical.
The extended warranty is out, it's 264 miles over the limit.
The passenger seat (extended cab) does not slide, broken spring. Trim coating is peeling badly.
The fuel gauge registers empty while still having ½ tank of diesel.
The cassette deck is faulty and will not play tapes properly.
Cruise control: if you use it, the pickup gets warm, you take off the cruise it will no longer work.
