The little truck that can
Seats have worn and they have been very uncomfortable right from the get go.
Carpet has worn at the door.
Oil leaks slowly.
At 224000 km. it would blow blue only on start-up and only until it was warm.
Gas gauge stopped working at 210000 km.
Thank ogd for the trip meter.
Have had some problems with the carburetor.
Very costly to replace tail lights, even used. (Vandalism)
Total rebuild of the engine at 255400 km. including seat, and valves.
This has been an overall awesome truck.
Has hauled some awfully big loads with a utility trailer attached and still makes it up the Hope-Princeton Highway. without a problem.
Once the engine was rebuilt, due to continuous blue smoke no matter how long you let it warm up, it has run without a problem.
Cost for the rebuild was approx $800.00 so for the years I have had the truck it has far exceeded any cost I have put into it.
Regular maintenance is the most I've really spent on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
