Truck with attitude
Where to begin...
Car acquired from family for dump runs etc. Needed some work:
Rockers rusted out, installed stainless steel "covers" to pass inspection.
Tires bald - replaced with uh, I don't remember. Sears.
E-Brake didn't work. Turned out Mom had driven a "while" with the e-brake on - glazed the rear pads. Sandpaper.
Exhaust: muffler & tailpipe.
Throttle linkage sticky - pulled apart and wd-40'd it up.
Neutral start failed - grounded out the switch...
Seat sags. Should replace it.
Nothing has broken since the initial rash of repairs, though...
This truck cannot get stuck. 4x4 Command Track option. Two feet of snow, plows had piled ahead higher than the hood. I put it in 4x4 low, said a brief prayer and blew right through it. (Other car is also 4x4 (Kia). Stuck until the snow melted)
This truck is a beast. I like beasts, though. It is old, cranky, ugly and brings a smile to my face when I pass the poor joe's stuck in the snow :)
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
