Pros

Good on gas. Great for in-city transportation and good work truck.

Cons

Small engine with hardly any power. Basically a tin can on wheels with a bed on the back. Not at all suitable for speeds over 65 or long trips.

Overall Decent Startup Truck — I liked the truck when it was just a work truck and starter car. Now that I have a ram 1500 it's kind of useless except for when I deliver pizzas and the occasional work stuff loaded up in the back.

Pros

5ft whoops at 50mph no problem!

Cons

need more factory power, power steering sucks!

35

Needs A V8 And Suspention — its a 94, it needs more power but it is easy to get that power. you have to have glass, fiberwerx, McNeil, Glassworks Unlimited, who ever, just get some glass, it really helps on MPG saves some weight 93-97 is the Ibeam front end, durtyhooker or nothing!

Pros

Fits family of four, decent on fuel, hauls small stuff, fairly easy to work on.

Cons

Acceleration isn't great because of small motor, older and was neglected on some aspects by previous owners (sure there were reasons).

Love It, Only Change Might Be A 3.0 6 Banger. — Four banger isn't much when needed to get on interstate, back seats are decent for younger people. Hasn't been too bad considering I purchased it at an auction, and have replaced rear end, a starter, and radiator. Good vehicle for camping or short road trips though minus it doesn't have cruise control and is a manual (5spd). Overall a good truck.

Pros

it is pretty fun to drive, good looking truck, gear ratio is just right, comfortable, controls well laid out, virtually no blind spots.

Cons

single cab means not much privacy and no reclining, doesnt make that impressive of a noise and its not fast in the slightest.

Good Truck For What It Is, Economical, Practical, Good Commuter Or Work. — all in all its a good fun little truck. there are a million parts available as they made tons of the trucks (including mazda b2000), didnt change them a whole lot. plus, they put the v6 vulcan engine in the taurus as well. very sturdy suspension and good handling for a truck. no grip in winter without sand bags in this 2wd model. good mpg as well.

Awesome — This car has been awesome. Best Vehicle I've ever owned. Good on gas and powerful at the same time. Hard to give it up but I just need to haul more stuff. Newer Brakes, Alternator, Rotors, Bearings, Thermostat, and Head Gasket.

Pros

It's mine and it runs like new with a 170,000 miles on it.

Cons

It doesn't stay alighned very well.

A Good Truck For Some One Who Wants To Haul Small Stuff. — It has the 3.0 v6 in it so the power is kinda low and it takes awhile to warm up to. the frame is steady and there's no wobbles or rattles. it makes a great off-roader and is a lot of fun to drive!
