Pros

Hauls stuff, cheap to ensure, darn near indestructable

Cons

Eats gas like Wheaties, no handling, no speed, really top heavy and narrow, almost won't pass emissions tests these days

It Gets The Job Done But It Isn't What I'd Call Fun — I bought this truck as a replacement for my Jeep. It is more reliable but it certainly is what I would call a fun every day vehicle. I think it may be about time for something sportier and far more fuel efficient.

Bulletproof Road Warrior — This is a great all around car. Good utility functionality, great driver, substantial performance at the time it came out, there isin't much amazing to say about it, but there are very very few weaknesses in the car.
