Love The Truck But Will Not Buy Another One — Performance: handles great, enough body roll at 130km/h then i would like but its a truck Build quality: well put together Fun Factor: i live near lots of dirt roads and trails so this truck is dirty more often then clean, and will go sideways when i want it to

Good For The Price. — Great for the price, but would not recommend a 4 CYL truck or for anyone with a decent sized family. Reliable so far, minimum maintenance required. If they still made them, I'd buy a new one, just with a more powerful engine.

If your looking for a sporty but small do anything go anywhere tuck.

Would Like To Get 9500 For It. — Great acceleration with the 4.3L Vortec V-6, and roomy with seating for 5 in a mid sized pick-up. Has had very low cost of ownership in the nearly 3 years I've had it though the gas mpg is low. I constantly get praise for it's appearance and it's nice not looking like every other mid-sized crew cab pick-up.

Good Truck

Cons

Small Truck

Good Truck — Good first vehicle for anyone looking for a truck. I recommend getting a manual transmission there more fun. Fun to drive. Easy to maintain. Drives fairly well in the snow. Off-Roading is descent but I wouldn't recommend doing anything extreme.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros

affordable and reliable

Cons

lack in power and space

Clean, Simple, Cheap Trucks, Easy To Customize And Make Cool — the 4 cylinders have almost no power, but very economical, the 6 cylinders on the other hand have plenty of power handles like a camaro when lowered with wide tires simple chassis leads to easy maintenance very economical easy to customize
