I bought my 93 ranger in October. I've made many mods to this truck and the only thing that i found is horrible is the twin i beam front suspension. Other than that its great on gas, looks (with work. mine has a 2.3 engine 5 spd manual.

I've done a lot of work to this truck. New tranny, brake calipers, rotors, stereo, lenses, timing chain and gears, water pump, freeze plugs, new AC, fuel sending unit, gas shocks. Although I inherited it from my brother for free, I've spent over $4200 getting it road worthy again. The paint is still in great shape. Handles well.

This Ranger was purchased new right off the truck. It had 9 miles on it in 6/93. It's now 8/2006 and it has 185,674 miles and still going strong. It still has the original motor and transmission. The V6 3.0 is great, the only thing its needs is a new paint job, no rust on it.

This is my second Ranger. The first was an '83 that had over 150k and as far as I know is still going. The '93 has been a real work horse for me and now has 100k on it. Basic mechanical wear with very little rust. I live in the Boston area and the winter conditions are hard on all cars. The Ranger has performed well. I am now looking to buy a 2005. Only because I would like some extras this time.

Bought new in spring '93 and it's only
at 96K now;still looks/runs about as
good as new. Beyond regular maintenance
we've done no repairs other than replace
a cracked clutch slave and deal with the
poorly-designed parking brake. All the
heat shields have been removed after
they started to fall off (or rattle)
over the years. Note: this V6 burned
about 1 qt oil every 1,500 miles since
it was new-- Ford claimed this was
"within spec" and it's never really
changed. Re-torquing the intake manifold
bolts seemed to help for a while, but it
certainly didn't stop the oil use.

I bought this truck new in 1993. I
have had another vehicle most of the
past 10 years, so the mileage isn't too
high (80K). Other than the leaks
others have written about, no major
problems or unplanned expenses.
Exterior has held up well. Interior
fabrics, carpet, and trim have held up
very well. It is relegated to being a
hauler & airport parker (to keep
my "good" car safe at home), but I'm
planning to keep it another 10 years.
