03-13-2004, 02:27 PM
Hey guys,

Parents are looking to sell the Chevy astro and pick up a light truck, well not too light....V6.....(1997-2000) [$10-12000 CD so like 8,000usd)

What suggestions do you guys have for reliability, power, features, and overall appearence?
4 wheel drive isnt necessary

I was thinking about these:
-Dodge Dakota sport
-Ford Ranger
-Chevy S-10
- Toyota (1990-1995)
- Mazda

Any pros and cons will be appreciated

I will have to side with Gonthro and ole dsm. Nissan and Toyota make reall good trucks... I have a 93 nissan pickup that has been in about 4 acciddents and it still keeps on running.... I did however buy a new truck but only because I dont like to do bodywork....... The nissan also has about 270,000 well earned kms on it and it still drives like new...

thats my 2 cents anyway... Import all the way for pickups....
