    Love This Truck! — Excellent truck even at 530000km (330000miles). It has a faulty sensor that kicks the ABS system on which affects acceleration, but that is the only problem I have had. It is a great car to drive otherwise. The breaks squeak a little too. However, it works very well and I have yet to have a major issue with the truck. The previous owner did ALOT of work on it though, I got it for 1200 dollars which was good for what I paid.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Good value for the age of it. I don't think it is coming off the road anytime soon.

    Cons: Faulty sensors did affect driving.

    Great Little Truck For Doing Just About Anything You Need It To. — Great little truck as long as you don't get an automatic transmission (4L60E) with it... The 4 cylinder version sounds like a sewing machine motor once it gets old... But if you get the 4.3L V6 and a 5-speed transmission you're good to go... Excellent gas mileage all the way around, has great handling

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: It's not a Ford, It's American, and there are aftermarket parts everywhere for it.

    Cons: The 4L60E stock likes to burn clutch packs.

    Good Little Truck. — Gets me from point A to point B then back to point A safely. Hasn't died on me yet. Was a great price back when I bought it. They want eleven more words, so I am just putting this in as filler.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Hasn't died, and still going strong.

    Cons: Its a small truck.  Gas milage is going down hill.

    Good For The Price. By archituethi

    Solid Truck For Sale By sailor102586
