Review

I bought my Ranger brand new when I was 18. It's the only vehicle I've ever owned. Now, I'm 44 and it still runs great. My inspections only cost $7, because vehicles over 25 years old only have to have the safety inspection done--no emissions test.

This truck has stood the test of time. I've had two offers on it, even though I'm not selling it.

Review

Not incredibly useful when used to haul 4x8 sheets. You need to build a special carrier (2x4s work) to haul panels. Plenty of power. Good for the average truck user.

Rangers...they run, no matter how ugly it gets.

Review

I bought this Ranger as an used vehicle in 2003; since then I've put just under 100,000 miles on it. It's a XLT regular cab with a long bed and the 4.0 V6/automatic.
While not necessarily in the market for a truck, I needed a vehicle to drive, and it was the right price.


For the most part, it is true that these things last forever and that these things are hard to kill.
However, unless they are taken care of better than perfectly, they have a tendency to attract dents and rust like a magnet.


Best Features

Even though this was an XLT, the interior fabric and carpet is very hard-wearing (it helps that mine had dark-tinted windows). Fairly good visibility. Comfortable seats (this one had the split-folding cloth bench seat)


Worst Features

For those who want trucks, make them again! Better rust protection (rust protection to begin with?) Single-piece opening rear window (not the split in the rearview mirror) Cupholders (there are none)

Review

Bought in 2009 with 25,000 original mi. certified on Carfax. This is as basic of a truck as you can get. No power steering or radio. But a great small work truck. Added a CD player myself. Other than oil changes no maintenance has been needed.


Best Features

2.3 liter 4 cyl is not big on power but it gets just shy of 29(!) mpg. Cheap and simple. Cheap 14" tires.


Worst Features

A little more power would be nice and power steering for my wife.
