I love the truck
First bought the car in 2006, two months later the head gasket blew at 78k (I figure I bought a lemon). I spent $1,500 to fix and then drove it from KY to FL. Great Drive. Then I got the fuel sensor issue and bought a $25 fuel sensor on eBay. A friend changed it cheap.
Other than that, I have only changed routine things such as: brake pads, clutch, shocks, battery, tires and filters.
I moved to Nicaragua and shipped the car with me. Considering that cars take a real beating here, a lot of pot holes and dirt roads, it has been better than great. With no 4x4 I still use it to pull a small aluminum boat on the beach and never have issues. I consider it spends quite a bit of gas, but then again there are few highways and a lot of hills (also, its really hot so the A/C is always on). Overall it does about 15 - 20 mpg. Very spacious interior.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
