Summary:

An under 50000 miles car

Faults:

Starting in reverse order:

The transmission has just gone out

The day before the alternator went out

The week before the transfer case blew

The belts have been replaced 11 times since I have owned it

The a/c went out at 80000 miles.

The rear axle snapped in 2 and when it did it blew its first transmission

The left front locking hub blew at 50k

The radio went at 100k

The head gasket has also been replaced twice.

General Comments:

It is a good truck in the mud. I t has good pulling power for a four banger. It has the most uncomfortable ride on this earth!! My truck is on its way to the junker. On a scale of 1-10 when I first bought the truck (20000mi) it was an 11 past 80000mi it is a 1.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
