It is a very dependable, high quality truck
Driver seat has started to wear badly.
Overall, this is an extremely well made truck and is one of the more reliable vehicles I have owned. There have been no major mechanical problems. The 5-speed manual transmission shifts great. The 2.7 liter 4-cylinder engine runs smooth, but is it not the most responsive when attempting to accelerate. Probably the only complaint I have is that the driver seat is a little uncomfortable. Over time the driver seat has lost some support especially in the lumbar area due to what appears to be premature wear of seat foam.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
