Keep Away from Children
Nothing major until a bolt in the steering assembly came undone (I'm still unsure as to how that happened) causing complete loss of steering during a right hand turn @ 108,000 miles.
She'll need completely new rear breaks @ 110,000 miles (problem with mechanic not servicing them the first time).
This was a vehicle that my parents passed down to me at 98K miles, and I've since done what I could to keep it running. We've never had any problems with it, so I guess no one really questioned if handing it down was a good move or not. Well, I've made my stupid beginner's errors with this truck, and it's ended up causing very serious and costly problems.
It's a good truck if you stay on top of preventative maintenance, and bad as a high mileage first vehicle for your starving college student, no matter how reliable it's history.
I doubt many other people would have the same steering problem.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
