23 years, 300,000 miles, still happy
Bought it brand new in 1994 and never wanted anything else. I modified the interior for more leg room. Removed 90% of the dashboard, who needs a glove box anyway? and arm rest console. Carpet was moldy after 18 years, also took out the sagging ceiling material and most of the plastic and insulation and replaced it with leather from an old couch. My friends thought I was crazy but the truck is so reliable I decided giving the interior a new look was smarter than shopping for a new car payment. The exterior still looks new except for some faded paint on the hood. And overall I don't think I could be happier. I've slept in the drivers seat comfortably on many trips and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this truck to anyone looking for something reliable and affordable to maintain.
worst truck i have had
last last i got one of these trucks and i have had to take out the transmission three times and the truck has no power and is to small for a tall person.so i am tradeing for a Dodge Ram 1500
Most reliable car i have ever owned
251000 miles and still going strong. Have had it for 8 years. My dad bought brand new. I average 23-25 mpg. It is a bit slow at the start and when in 5th gear, but otherwise it's good. Its not a race. I use it as my commuter and hunting rig. I will never trade this truck in.. It does take a quart of oil every 2000 miles. Not leaking, just burns it. Have taken it to several different shops and have an "A" on the vehicle....bumper to bumper.
