Excellent work truck that takes a beating and has never stranded me anywhere
Exhaust manifold threads on head rusted off, had to replace heads and manifolds.
Rear brakes did not work at all when bought (known issue, got the truck cheap).
Replaced all brake lines.
I needed a work/plow truck that was not nice looking, so I didn't feel bad if I dented or scratched it. This truck was very cheap ($1500), and has met my needs very well.
However the former owner did not care for it, and it has needed some attention.
Wear and tear is normal for the abuse I give it. I plow driveways, pull fallen trees out of the woods, haul heavy items.
The power of the 7.5 is great, but boy does it love gas. I average about 10 miles per gallon, I do not use this as my daily driver or I would be broke.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
