"I bought my 2000 model used, in 2001. It has held up so well that I will definately buy the same model again. [knock on wood] It has once been to the shop for repairs in the 7+ yrs I've owned it--and that was for a busted radiator hose. At 90K, it had a major check-up, and it only cost $1,100 for the ENTIRE service (and that's MAJOR replacement of all kinds of parts). I LOVE IT. It was the best "investment" I've ever made; the resale value is as strong as any truck on the market--it has retained 50% of its orginal value after EIGHT years."
