Not my first choice, but beggars can't be choosers

Although I complain like a banshee about this car, I really do enjoy it. This truck was bought by my dad in September of 2001 right off the showroom floor, and now I use it to commute everyday from school and then to work. Gas mileage is good considering it's a full-sized pickup and I mainly drive in stop and go traffic. My favorite things about this truck include the interior space, the amount of power outlets, and the amount of interior storage. When we bought this truck, my dad needed it to use for sidework and also as a family vehicle. The backseat seats three adults comfortably and the front seats are huge and super comfortable. One thing that I particularly like is that there are four power outlets on the dash which I can use to simultaneously listen to my ipod and charge my phone with. There is also a million places to store things on the inside. Underneath the backseat we keeps boxes of tools and miscellaneous items, we keep cds, pens, paper, air freshener, and all kinds of things in the ginormous center console. The glove box is also useful as a storage area. Don't let the exterior of this car fool you either, it's fast. I have driven this to the Jersey shore several times this summer and it can haul ass on the highway.
