Summary:

Overall happy with this light truck for its price back in 2005

Faults:

Replaced muffler in 2008.

Replaced front anti roll bar bushing in 2008.

General Comments:

Disappointed with the antiquated AMERICAN parking brake system in this truck.

My first choice would be a Toyota Tacoma, and my second choice an Nissan Frontier if price and availability wasn't a factor.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
