Not an especially fun vehicle to drive unless you define vehicle fun in terms of extreme reliability. In that case, this truck is more fun than I have a right to.
I bought it 9.5 years ago for $5000 and have put less than $1000 in repairs/maintenance. Tires and brake pads every couple years, a new alternator once, a $30 clutch cable, and many fluid changes is all I've ever needed to do.
That's almost 10 years as a daily driver for under $6000. Did I mention it is relatively cheap to insure?
The bad thing about these trucks is getting any custom aftermarket parts is getting harder and harder. Good luck easily finding a perfect fit camper shell for one for example.
Also the parts from Mitsubishi (who is likely who you will have to go to for electrical or internal engine parts) are not cheap at all! I personally haven't yet had to go that route, but sooner or later I would guess I will need a part from the factory and I am not looking forward to that.
Still, I have already gotten more than my money's worth and everything between now and then is gravy as I see it.
I just wish there was anything else on the new vehicle market at all that gave this type of cost/value long-term.
I really wish they'd sell them here again (and in the equivalent price range). I'd immediately buy one and keep my older one for backup.
