Pros: "Easily managed, great size for light duties."

Cons: "Not a lot of cab storage, small center seat."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"This is a great sized vehicle for someone's first. Mine so happens to be a 5 sp. manual, and the shifting is not difficult to manage. Occasional problems arise as with any vehicle, but tend to be simple, easy fixes that require little shop time or you can do yourself (i.e.: changing spark plugs and wires). Also great for new drivers that you don't want to haul dozens of people around, as it only seats two with a small center seat. All around great truck."

Pros: "Best snd most practical truck I've had"

Cons: "Need better seats, better radio and speakers."

"Mine has the small V6 which has all the power I ever ask for. I have towed a car trailer with 2600 # on it over Nebraska's hills, driven in deep snows and driving rain. It is a plain Jane two door with 2 wheel drive, automatic. A practical truck. All that I have done is replace belts, hoses, tires and the safety cables on the tailgate. I had it tuned up twice which is to be expected over 128 K miles. I always classed the mileage as very good for the model year. if you want very good gas mileage get a two wheel drive -- not 4 wheel! I also towed a canoe trailer about 5 time over a total of somewhere over 2000 miles -- only problem was flat tires on the trailer! I'll bet engineers didn't have a say on dropping it from production-- other people probably thought it was not flashy enough to keep it's market position. It more than likely had to do with the younger set's need for glitter instead of substance."
