Summary:

An excellent pickup truck for everyday driving or occasional off road use

Faults:

Rear wheel seal, cracked radiator, A/C leak, timing chain at 255000.

General Comments:

Bought this car right after the previous owner installed a new head and timing chain, as well as a rear end that had been run dry due to a failed seal. The truck has run well since I got it with 260000 miles in 02.

The clutch (original?) is only now beginning to show replacement is imminent.

Body rust is increasing (high NV desert), and of course paint is faded.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
