I bought this thing off Ebay & found out after the deal was done that it was a rental -- had I known that to begin with, this thing would still be down south! Figures, the day I bid on it, the free Carfax report on the auction was down. Goes up again as soon as the guy calls me to accept my offer.
I get the thing delivered & the first thing I do is check the oil, then I remove the radiator cap & find THIS:
So then I flush out the radiator, change the thermostat, & take it for a drive. Now it gets up to temperature, but the 4 x 4 don't work. After replacing about 5 miles of disintegrated vacuum lines, I get the check engine light just before going for a sticker. Turns out the cat is junk. I look at it & it's a aftermarket piece of crap that was half-ass welded in place. So I drop over $500 on new Y pipe/cat assembly, now I notice it handles like crap, so I jack it up by the control arms & check for play -- which it has IN EVERY COMPONENT!!
So now, upper/lower ball joints, inner/outer tie-rod ends, idler arm & pitman arm! WHAT'S NEXT??? A tranny code, that's what!! Now drop the pan, & replace the 1-2 shift solenoid. Now, we have wipers that only work on HI, no Hi beams, a large coolant leak somewhere in back of the engine where it's impossible to see & a power window switch that works BACKWARDS - the express-down feature is now an EXPRESS UP!! The GM GUILLOTINE!!
BY FAR -- biggest piece of *censored* I have ever owned in my LIFE!!
