"I bought this truck with 20k on the odo and while it was still under warranty, and I have to admit I nitpicked a few things until I was happy.(minor trim items) I have now owned it for 6 years and have put a total of 108k on it, and I can say for certain that this has been the best vehicle I have ever owned. As far as small trucks, I have owned a 86 Mazda, 91 S-10 and a 95 Nissan and the rest have been new vehicles that get traded off every year (gotta keep the wife happy) I have done the standard stuff, brakes, belts, filters, etc and have put 3 batteries (delco) and one alternator, but otherwise has been flawless. It has never left me stranded, well, except for when I ran out of gas, and fires right up every time, ok, except when I left the headlights on and it killed the battery. I wouldnt hesitate to buy a newer one if the condition was right, but unfortunately most that buy these trucks dont take very good care of them. It has been repainted due to combo hail damage/key/rear end collosion but before that the paint was still in good shape. Nobody can believe the truck is 10yrs old by looking at it. The only downside is that it sometimes has trouble getting out of its own way, (2.2) but the V-6 will take care of that, and you will spend a lot of time tracking down creaks and rattles, but the fact is if it were built any better it would have cost a lot more. I imagine I will own this thing until it gives up the ghost, but plan on picking up a v-8 Canyon when they come out."
