Buy something older, they built them better back then

This truck is always getting something fixed every two weeks. Truck looks nice with lot of add-ons It has little power for passing. The seats are buckets and are very comfortable. The engine drinks gas and the performance is never there. It also has nice 17" wheels and tires, but nobody seem to build a tire for them other that street tires.
This truck lives in Anchorage, Alaska and I would rather drive something older that runs and doesn't break, than drive a truck that looks beautiful sitting in my mechanics' parking lot broken.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
