Cheaply built truck from Mexico. But the Cummins turbo diesel is why I bought it
Clutch, vacuum pump, water pump, heater core, entire AC system, VP44 injection pump, clutch master / slave cylinder, both power windows, rebuilt front end twice, new suspension.
In the 46,000 miles and 6 years I've owned this vehicle, everything I expected to go wrong has. So I entered the equation knowing what I was getting into. Each repair/ replacement has been met with OEM or better upgrades to make this truck more bullet proof. I plan on keeping her another 10 years, regardless of mileage, so the repair expenses will amortize over greater time. The engine and transmission have proven reliable thus far; both items that are NOT built by the vehicle manufacturer.
You're on your own if you decide to own a vehicle like this. Study the Cummins forums and learn what works for this truck, and what doesn't.
At then end of the day, I have a good looking rig on an 8" lift and 40" military tires that will pull a house. It would cost me over $75,000 to get the same set up in a brand new vehicle.
Even though this truck is 9 years old, people stop me everywhere I go to comment on her, mostly due to her lift and tires.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
