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.
Good light duty truck at low price. Good on gas and easy to park. If you do get one go for the V6 - the 4 is underpowered.
Should all have V6 engines. Extend the bed by one foot.
