A feature packed entry level truck designed for the city boy with a country soul
The front U-Joint had to be replaced at 75,000 Miles.
The finish scratches easily.
The lumbar support know broke when I over twisted it.
The emergency break pedal gets stuck, so I must push the pedal while pulling the emergency break release.
The truck handles well in the summer, but lacks traction in the snow.
The Anti-Lock Brake System is very good in the snow letting the truck spin out only on glare ice.
The gas mileage is incredible in the city averaging 24-28 in the city on 89 octane.
There is excessive road noise.
The stereo system is incredible for a factory system, especially the "Auto Volume System" which turns up and down the volume as you accelerate.
The retained power is a very convenient feature.
The headlight system is set a little late for driving in rain (meaning that if it is a dreary day, I normally have to turn on my headlights manually about 10 to 15 minutes before the sensor detects they should be on).
The 5 speed stick is very responsive and allows for full use of engine power.
The cabin lighting system is designed very well; almost every area (including the foot wells) is lit.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
