Transmission went out 1 month after purchase (70,000 miles), dealer helped to replace, but still cost me about $800 with a new clutch (might as well put one in at the same time).
Catalytic convertor rotted, think it is happening again, which no one can explain.
Oxygen sensor died (due to stalling in a creek).
Had electrical problems after being hit by lightning, only thing that I can find to explain it is multiple wires melted together, seems fine now though.
Distributor cap needed replacing, this is what caused it to stall in the creek.
Cruise control does not work consistently, seems to work in the morning, but not later in the day, has me stumped.
Parking brake seized.
Bushing at the top of the transmission wore out, after the new transmission (or that is what the dealer called it, I have sworn off the dealer that sold it to me due to their rudeness in helping me) was only in there for 30,000 miles, difficult to replace because the seats had to be taken out and carpet pulled back just to get the cover off from around the shifter.
I love my truck, had some serious problems at the beginning, but I think it was slightly abused. I am an avid caver and have to put this stock truck to the test to get to some of the caves.
Could use a little more power for pulling my pop-up camper, but it is a 4 cyl, so I knew that when I bought it.
I put 55,000 miles on it in less than two years, planning on it lasting a long time to come, or at least until I pay it off.
Good cargo weight and ride height.
My only complaint right now is that the transmission is sometimes tricky to shift, does not shift smoothly.
Would be very frustrated with this truck if I could not do most of the repairs myself, dealers would have charged me an arm and a leg.
If there are any ideas on the cruise contol on the catalytic convertor, drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
