I found it to be both economical and tough. It gets 22+ miles per gallon gas-wise. I have use it for hauling and pulling and off-road and always found it to be up to whatever task I needed done. As a building construction contractor, I always knew it would be up to whatever needed to be done. It's not big, but it does drive smooth as you could possibly want.
Story
I was actually involved in a near-road-rage incident. At least I think that was what it was. Some guy was trying to cut me off and blowing his horn. I needed to get away quickly. This stealth little bugger got around and out danger.
Pros
Easy maintenance. Reliable and dependable. Economical. Responsive. Excellent ride and ample room. Lots of cargo space.
Cons
The cabin is somewhat cramped for space. Very heavy loads can be a problem. Bed liner is made from sub-optimal materials. Smaller than average pickup.

This thing has completely failed. I've had to replace the head gaskets and all the other gaskets along with them. I've put in a ton of oil and coolant, too! It has almost no "giddy-up" either. The 0-60 is probably close to 20 seconds or so. It does get me where I need to go and is small enough to U-turn in my neighborhood streets, which is nice.
Story
I thought I killed it once when I turned the corner and it turned itself off. It turned out to be a wire disconnected from my ignition coil. Fun times.
Pros
It's really small bodied for a v6. It just keeps going with a little TLC. It makes a great honking noise. Parts for repairs are really cheap.
Cons
Most things squeak from the steering column to the brakes to the chassis itself. It eats gas like it was designed by BP. Things are hard to work on under the hood.
