A dependable truck with lots of class!
A bearing went out in the motor for the climate control system 3 months after I got the truck. The dealer replaced it under warranty.
There is a rattle in the dash when the temperature drops below 35 degrees. It seems to be related to the fan for one of the defrost outlets. It goes away once the truck warms up, so I don't consider it anything major at all.
The leather front bucket seats in this truck are extremely comfortable. The back seat of my extended cab truck is okay for an adult on short trips, but I would recommend the new 4-door model for everyday use.
The climate control system is awesome in both summer and winter. I never have a problem with the windows fogging up - something you can't say with most trucks.
Fuel economy ranges from 15 to 18 mpg. Not bad for a V8 Four Wheel Drive, although I do spend about $175-$200 a month for 2,200 miles worth of driving.
I purchased and installed an OEM alarm/keyless entry system for the car. Definitely nice to have.
I am a very apt Saturday mechanic, but I must admit that changing the oil is somewhat of a chore. Due to the off-road package, I must change the filter from above. It always a challenge to not get any oil on the serpentine belt.
Locking tailgate is a nice feature.
Layout and features of the interior are excellent.
Power outlets are located in a handy spot.
Cup holders have "inserts" that will fit just about any size beverage container that you will encounter.
The storage compartments located under the rear seats are very handy - I keep my hold down straps in one and my emergency kit in the other.
The glove compartment and center console provide more than enough storage for this vehicle.
Wood grain interior option gives this truck a lot of class. Whether you're hauling landscape supplies or going out for a night on the town, this truck fits in perfectly!
Very smooth ride - you can't tell the difference between this truck and a Lexus LS400.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
