"Still humming everyday. Yes, a few minor problems. Front pads,2 sets of tires ($400),battery, belts. Original rear drum shoes. 4x4 is dependable and never failed to get me where I needed to go. Ziebart and NO rust. Just changed oil/air filters....$30 LOL try that with your 2012 & up pickup trucks. Runs like a top...and still can get a bit of chirp in second. overall....I figured my total expenses for lifetime - 200 months = under $100/month. 20mpg is minimum. I love free wheeling. LOVE my TRUCK"

"I am the second owner of this truck and am very pleased with its reliability and low cost. Good mileage, with a tough suspension. 4x4 with locking hubs and low range can go anywhere."

Cons: "no cup holders"

"Bought the pickup as a second vehicle and to save on some gas. At the time of purchase it had almost 100,000 miles. The transmission did come out of it at around 225,000 miles. I replaced it with one from a junk yard and put a new clutch in it. At about 260,000 miles I sold it to my nephew. The other day he sent me a picture of the odometer at 410,000. The engine has never been opened; however, he started using high mileage oil in it sometime around 320,000 miles. Without a doubt it is the most amazing vehicle I have ever been associated with."

"I have the '95 2.4L 4 cylinder, I've had it for 3 years now and havent had a single issue with it, it had 176000 miles on it when I bought it, i'm now over 200k. Good mileage only downside is you can't fit many people in it."
