Its classy and functions very well.

It is very reliable, and performs very well. It is very comfortable, . . It has heated seats, roomy, and we have had many people say that they want one just like it. Gas mileage could be better but its livable. We bought it used 3 years ago and have had very few problems, other than normal wear and tare issues. . . We replaced the tires and just recently put on new brakes. Overall great vehicle.

- Annie S

Seems like a good car that seems it will get many safe and reliable miles.

I really like the accessories that came with my truck such as the truck bed rails and the tarp hooks that can slide in and out. The side step options help my 4 year old son get in and out with ease. I do not like that the center console does not have much space or the fact that it does not slide out for a better arm rest. I wish it was higher.

- Amanda G

It's your basic truck two door truck seats.

I love my truck it comes in handy and I haven't had any major issues and when I moved from one town to another it came in handle. It's your basic truck but I love it. I don't need to remit a rent truck to move. And I can help my coworkers or pick up my washer and dryer without having to pay that extra fee for them to deliver an hour away.
