I purchased my 1983 Nissan Pickup in 1987. Over the last 13 years, the only non-oil change money that I have had to put in it was for the brakes and a new fuel filter. It has 175,000 miles and still purrs like a kitten. From hauling gravel to going back and forth to work daily, this vehicle has become as reliable as the sun rise in the morning.
If you see any for sale, I recommend it as a great purchase for a second car or as that teenager vehicle that you might have to buy. This used truck is approximately $1700 and is easy maintenance.
Gas mileage has averaged around 16 over the last couple of years.
