Best vehicle for the money!


The radiator had a leak at 50,000 miles. The head gasket had to be replaced and the fuel filter changed. The tires were only replaced once. The paint job eventually rusted in the bed of the truck after 9 years.

General Comments:

Outstanding truck for the money. It came standard with 5 on the floor and a plug drain on the gas tank. I worked the truck hard carrying heavy loads with no problem. This was the best vehicle I have owned for the money.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
