I just turned 16 and got my license. I chose this to be my first car. I have had it for about 2 months now and have been driving it for about a month. This low budget truck fits right into my price range. At only $600, It is a wonderful buy.
This truck is amazingly reliable. It starts on queue, mind you always on the second try. It handles great, especially after adding wider, shorter tires on it.
When I first got it, it needed a tune-up. It had a new air filter and muffler that the previous owner replaced before I bought it. I have, so far, changed the oil and the fuel filter. I am still planning on changing plug wires, distributor cap (especially if its cracked), and the spark plugs. I'm sure running some fuel injector cleaner though it wouldn't hurt either.
All-in-all, this is a great first vehicle. Cheap on gas, reliable, and somewhat comfortable for 6' of height. I recommend this truck for anyone who needs a dependable ride, on a low budget. I wouldn't expect it to win a beauty contest though.
