Transmission is slowly breaking in; it was pretty jerky from the factory.
The transmission doesn't like cold, -20C or lower; it grinds a bit between shifts until it warms up.
Clutch pedal sticky when at -20C and not warmed up.
Need to rev it to 3000 RPM to get a smooth gear change.
Pretty good on gas, averaging 10L to 11L/100KM.
4 wheel drive is a lifesaver.
Handles well, traction control is really good.
The engine is a lot like a Civic engine; you need to downshift to pass; don't even think about passing at less than 3000 RPM.
I would call this the Honda Civic of trucks; good on gas, reliable, not too fancy, not very fast. If you want to haul ass with leather, get the high end version or an F150.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
