It's a nickel and dimer
I bought the truck in 2000 for 2 grand. On the test drive, the clutch went out. That was a sign saying don't buy me! After the owner replaced the clutch, we bought it.
Drove it for 40,000 miles. One day decided to go on a hunting trip, and was traveling up this hill, and the truck lost all of its performance. 30 miles from home; decided to drive it all the way there. The truck hardly idled, ran really rough. When we got home, 3 days worth of pulling the intake off and the exhaust manifold, and then the head to check if it was a head gasket. Came to see it was the number 3 piston; half of it was missing; I was running on three cylinders.
After that I decided to put a motor in for $2,300. 2,000 miles later the tranny went; there's another $2000.
OK, so after that is all said and done, electrical problems!! Went through 3 alternators in 4 months. Took it to a shop, and one of the wires on the plug that plugs into the back of the alternator was snipped. Had that soldered back together.
A couple days after everything was squared away, I had just got done adjusting the brakes, and was going to a party, and the driveway was steep down hill and gravel. My brakes locked up, and I slid right into a big tree, imprinting my license number on it. 300 dollars in body damage, and I was on my way again.
Now I'm trying to sell it. It's been through a lot, but I think it's time for someone else to take over the throne.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
