It's a great truck and does exactly what it's supposed to do
Head gasket went at 192,000 miles
Rust problems started around 200,000 miles
Hard brake line required replacement at 219,000 miles
Drivers seat frame required re-welding at 180,000 miles.
For the type of vehicle it is it's a great truck. It's not a car, does not ride like a car nor does it handle like a car, but I've owned trucks most of my life.
It gets 20MPG under most conditions.
The A/C still works after all these years, as does everything else, in spite of the abuse I've heaped on it running it both on and off road.
If it were not for the rust problems that started to reveal themselves of late I'd consider keeping it for another 10 years!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
