1. Not in the least
2. So far I have been free of that trouble, The great majority seem to avoid any problems
3. I am not sure about the root cause but those that have had the repair ( to my knowledge) seem to be cured. I have not read or heard of any repeats.
4. This truck came to me at 27k miles 3.5 years ago, it is my daily driver and so much more, I can not conceive of any scenario that would make me want to part with it. If tragedy would strike I would immediately replace it in kind . It is perfect for me in size , comfort and utility. It is the most practical vehicle I have ever driven/owned in my 40 years behind the wheel. Did I mention I like it...a lot!
5. All accounts indicate nothing to place one above the other, sometimes pricing may swing one way or the other but besides badging, I have seen no reports to indicate any differences....
Good luck with your decision.
