General Comments:

Great Truck

I bought it new in 1987. I drove it from Virginia to Alaska in 1987. I shipped it form Alaska to California in 1991. I have done all the repairs and maintenance myself. It is extremely reliable and easy to work on. I trust it so much I drove it from California to Alaska in 2003. It had 90,000 miles on the odometer at the time. This truck is my baby. My wife and I love it. It has never let us down. It still handles great, it drives like a car. It has great acceleration. It gets 25 MPG. It still passes EM with no trouble. I have a bad back and find the seats very comfortable.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
