This ranger could be the Johnny Cash of trucks - "its been everywhere". I have my own complaints about it - but given that all its owners have treated it really bad. I have the crazy 4 cylinder (8 plugs), I am on the 3rd transmission, 2nd clutch, second starter. all of which I robbed from $25 parts trucks found locally. I have hit deer, bridges, barns, small brush trees. I have hauled tons of everything - car parts, cars, and wood. And even though the fluid clutch leaks, I can count on it 100% - do not use ATF as suggested by Ford - it rots the seals, causing the input shaft to break at the best possible time (250 miles from home) LOVE THE MIGHT-Y RANGER.

It is a reliable truck. 2.3L great gas mileage. I get 28 to 30 mpg! But it goes from 0-60 in a like 3 minutes. No power what so ever even though it is a 2wd. I can't figure out why it needs 8 spark plugs in a 4cylinder? It only has 98hp.

i got this truck last year as a first
vehicle. what a dissapointment. I
bought the truck w/ 120000 km on it.
17000km later i hate it more than ever.
The suspension on the left side is
shot. the steering is loose and bulky.
the engine...oh hell it won't run
smooth until i'm 10 minutes into a
drive. there is no fun factor other
than the reardrive on a gravel road.
this truck is way underpowered.hit a
bump while accellerationg and it feels
like the rear end is gonna blow up or
drop out. If you need a small truck,
get the S-10 w/ the 4.3L. I test drove
a '94 SS and it could blow the doors
off of any truck out there. i wish i
hadn't taken the cheaper route
