I really enjoy this car because it is reliable, efficient, and fast.
If one regularly changes the oil, the engine will run strong for a long, long time.
Nothing seems to break down in this car because it is so simple. There are no power anythings on this car, which can also be a bad things since this steering tends to be heavy.
I used to get around 24 MPG driving mostly freeway. But, I changed my driving style and started cruising around 55-60 MPH on the freeway and got 28 MPG despite driving in the city more.
This car accelerates pretty fast and can beat a stock Honda Civic or Corolla. It has a lot of mid-end torque, but not a lot horsepower, so it's quick off the line, but not too good for passing on the freeway.
Driving this pickup is like driving a Camry. It feels a little loose on the freeway especially during gusts. Surprisingly, this car can corner just as well as a sedan. There's so much weight on the front that the car rarely under-steers. For everyday driving, this car is a bit bumpy. Most of the time you just don't realize you're driving a pickup truck.
For $7000 dollars out the door, this car was a great deal.
