Get something better if you can
Just to name a few:
Exhaust replacement after owning a few months.
Timing chain replacement ($669.00) after owning five months, leaving me stranded.
Alternator went out costing ($100.00) to rebuild, leaving me stranded.
Brake cylinder broke ($110.00), other additional brake damage left unrepaired.
Front axle broken ($177.00)
Air and heating unit blew, left unrepaired.
Engine finally blew.
This truck for the most part was reliable I must admit. This was my first vehicle, purchased by my parents for me for high school. The truck was stylish, compact, easy to drive, smooth, comfortable.
Maintenance was difficult with this truck though as so many things seemed to go wrong at once. I wouldn't have minded repairing these things, but I was on a very limited income as a college student working only part-time. Things went wrong so fast with this truck that I was relegated only to patch-work rather than full, routine repairs. I would have liked to do some modifications to the truck, but repairs kept me on my toes to the point that my plans never came into fruition.
Finally, the truck said her last hurrah in August, leaving me stranded once again, this time only forcing me to purchase a different vehicle.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
