Great truck for homeowner or to just runaround in.

I have an extended cab canyon with a 200hp 5 cylinder engine, automatic transmission with off-road package which give it a stiff ride, and trailering gears for towing. It is the basic sle model, with power windows, power door locks. Am/FM radio. . It has bucket seats. It is my second vehicle, my "toy" and I am the only driver. Vehicle purchased in 2016 with 182, 000 miles. Currently has 204, 000 miles. Other than normal maintenance I haven't had to spend anything on it. .

Easy to get into for small bodied people!

I bought this vehicle used, with 148, 000 miles on it. It is been a very good vehicle and not too many "emergent" maintenance issues. I am not fond of it is inline 5-cylinder engine, however. It sounds like a strong truck, but both torque/power & acceleration are lacking. It is fairly sure-footed in 4-wheel drive also. Overall, I like my little truck!

I would recommend someone to buy this vehicle it has done well for me.

Only complaints I have is the interior armrest and compartments break off easily if left in the sun for long periods of time in Florida you can't really help that it is very reliable I put full synthetic oil in for high miles I lost my lock unlock alarm key chain and you can't use a universal one you have to replace it from the dealer very expensive.
