The vehicle seems to be a fair value especially because of the rear fiberglass cover and fairly new tires.

Awesome Daily Truck It Covers All Your Needs — Is a really gas economic truck and would cover all your needs from Haul to even your daily driving has a awesome look, a lot of power, but I kind of not like how it drives in snow but overall I love it.

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

Pros: All can say I love this truck!

Cons: N/A

Great Commute/work Truck. — This is a great vehicle for work or commuting. Gas milage is what you'd expect for a 4 cylinder. Seats are comfortable. Handles great even with cargo in the bed. Great visibility all around. Never any problems with engine or transmission.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great gas mileage, lots of room inside.

Cons: No gripes!

Best Car I've Owned — I bought this truck because I love cars but needed something the haul things. I picked up the ZQ8 sport model with the I5 and a 5 speed. Much quicker than the automatics, better fuel economy and more fun. The clutch on this truck is super easy to use. Great steering, great brakes. Compared to my Dad's Ranger, this truck is Lexus. It has needed absolutely nothing brake pads. I've done shocks, spark plugs, coolant flush and hoses...etc preventatively. Super easy to work on, lots of space around components. Couldn't ask for better. Body has held up GREAT! My Brother's old F150 had the frame rust in half at similar mileage. This truck still looks like new. I highly recommend this vehicle to anyone looking for a car, truck or otherwise. At 152,000 miles, I expect this to go 300,000 easy. If something breaks it won't cost much to fix.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Could buy the big engine with a 5 speed.
dual position tailgate, can haul 4x8 sheets of wood/drywall flat
Tows my 18 ft boat with ease
23 mpg lifetime average
Needs only regular tune up type maintenance and parts are CHEAP

Cons: Extend cab has some wind noise in cold weather
Plastic interior

Good Low-budget, Every Day Truck — I really like the look of the truck, the gas mileage, and the comfortable interior. One of my favorite features are the seat heaters. My biggest complaint is the lack of four-wheel drive, which is largely my fault. Overall it is a satisfactory, affordable truck. It definitely has quite a bang for the amount of bucks!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Handles well, very nice interior with leather seats and seat heaters, great looking exterior, fair gas mileage, good every day vehicle

Cons: 2-wheel drive! No steering wheel controls, no XM radio, rear wheel drive makes for easy fishtail-ing in wet, snowy, and icy conditions,

Neck Breaker. — I love everything about this truck, don't dislike anything from it. Love taking my baby cleaning my baby and taking her to the car meets, is almost a show car, just need to add a show car interior and it would be completed. Also has a nice stereo system with a 800 watts amp and 2 12" sub. No rust at all, keep the under hood and engine compartment spotless.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: great looking vehicle, everybody stops me to compliment about it, very efficient on fuel, added a cold air intake (that made it sound better and add more hp)... in a nutshell ,my baby!

Cons: not a family vehicle

Great. — I've had the truck since it was new. Unlike other trucks I've owned, this has been by far the most reliable truck for a mid size. I've had a Ford Ranger 4X4 also, and the GM out does it virtually every catagory.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Durable and very reliable mid sized truck. Very good fuel economy on the highway. Comfortable to drive and handles well in all weather conditions.

Cons: Being a crew cab, the box is shorter than I'd like.
