Pros Cons
Engine sounds and goes great - dependable - long lasting Mileage - better than last model but...
I love the look of the vehicle. The side mirrors are manual: crazy!
Suspension - for potholes and off-road driving Lack of auto radio adjustment at highway speed
4wd - need it in winter. works great Rear seat headrests block rear vision.
Performance - excellent pick-up, ease of shifting Rear suspension and rear ride not very smooth.
Location / arrangement of storage spaces Tailgate panel fit - noticed it right away - bought anyway
Manual 6 speed transmission: difficult to find, glad i looked Wind noises coming into interior when driving.
Manual transmission is smooth & has good ratios Low headlights - high beams don't seem bright
Engine acceleration - good for merging Leather interior - sides of seats are vinyl which tear easily
Bilstein shocks provide excellent ride for relatively short wheelbase Rear passenger & driver doors make it difficult to get in & out
