A real, reliable workhorse that could use a nicer cabin
Camshaft position sensor failed at 48,000 miles.
Door seals replaced with re-designed parts under warranty at 11,000 miles.
This has been a great truck. Highway mileage has fallen from 21 mpg to 19mpg in the last 6 years, but it has only needed one minor repair so far since new. Otherwise, just fluid and filter changes. I still have the original tires, batteries and original front brake pads on it.
I do wish the interior were better quality; the cupholder in the dash squeaks, and one dash speaker buzzes sometimes. The optional (and expensive) Infinity 9 speaker stereo sounds only average, and definitely wasn't worth the cost of the option. Parts are sometimes outrageously expensive - I broke the driver's side trailer tow mirror, and the dealership wanted more than $400 just for the part! I've also found dealer maintenance pricing to be high, so I do my own routine maintenance and repair work.
Otherwise, it's been virtually trouble free, and will seat 5 in comfort for long distances while pulling a huge trailer and 2 motorcycles in the bed. I hope the next 6 years are as reliable as the first 6.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
