Cons: "gas milage needs help"

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

"This is actually the best vehicle I have ever owned. The 4/5 rating is because there is room for improvement. The 454 has good power but not great, the gas mileage leaves something to be desired. I get 12mpg in combined mostly highway driving. In 150000 miles I've only had two problems, a bad fuel pump at 93000, and a bad water pump at just over 10000."

"I bought this truck brand new 19 years ago and it has served me well. Hauling boats, firewood, gravel, you name it, there was no task this truck could not handle. Original clutch lasted 250,000 miles, just for example. This truck will never die."
