Would buy again
The gasket around the windshield leaked, causing water to drip onto the fuse panel and GEM module. Both were replaced. 205,000km.
Windshield wiper motor replaced at approx 230,000.
Alternator replaced 240,000.
Replaced pittman arm.
Overall I am pleased with the performance of the truck. It has a very comfortable ride. Most of the Kms. are highway, but truck is used in the construction industry and therefore is driven on rough terrain frequently.
With the exception of a few problems, most of the maintenance has been normal maintenance such as brakes, tune ups, oil changes, etc.
Payload capacity is great. I have hauled 1 ton of sand over 200kms with no problems. You certainly could feel it.
Truck has great styling and seems current even at 11 years old.
Body is in great shape. There are no rust spots even with the road salt exposure.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
