Actually, I believe there might be a recall on this one. A friend of mine bought a 01 used and with in the frist week of owner ship it started to overheat and go thru coolant like water on her. After some research here, I told her to take it back and they relaced the head free of charge. I am not sure how, shop warrenty or recall, but its definately worth a shot.

Oh yeah, the Dr is right on this one.........besides the low pinion front axle, extra cats........this is the other reason to stay away from the later 99's and newer.....if buying used.
