Great basic transportation
Slave cylinder went bad.
Gas gauge only works at 1/4 tank or less.
I'm on my 3rd year with this truck. Simply put, the thing is really indestructible. I have literally spent less than $100 on this vehicle in three years and 23k miles.
I gave it a 7 on performance, because the engine is a dog - 60mph is pretty much your top speed going uphill, and beyond 70mph, the engine is roaring. Other than that, it performs fine. Great, especially around town, where it's easy to park.
Reliability is a 10. The only thing that has gone wrong with it was the slave cylinder went out while I was at work. I was able to bleed enough air out to drive 50 miles on the interstate, conserve shifts, and make it to my driveway. 20 minutes later I had a new cylinder on and bled.
Don't think you're going to make this a luxury vehicle, because it is basic transportation and no more. That said, I wouldn't be afraid to drive this truck anywhere in the country.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
