"In 15yrs I replaced just the alternator & 2 sets of tires ( weather check side walls). If a down side is the gas mileage @ 15 mpg but my new crew cab only gets 17 not much better after 15yrs of development."
Cons: "harsh ride, plastic latches that break etc."
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8
"I have owned this truck since new. Have purchased a newer truck. Having separation anxiety w/thought of selling this truck. it still looks & drives well after twenty years. However;this truck was never known for a comfortable ride. It does tow anything you throw at it with ease. Passenger seat track doesn't latch properly."

Smooth, not fancy, vinyl flooring 'cause of work.
