1994 Ford Ranger Regular Cab XLT 2dr Regular Cab SB


Review

I bought my Ford Ranger when it was one year old in 1995. My truck had 40,000 miles on it then. 10 years later it has 227,000 miles on it! I still love this truck. Last summer I replaced the transmission and thought of getting another vehicle. I didn't need to; here it is another year later and it is still driving fantastic. Through the years I have replaced one water pump (at 160,000 miles) 2 batteries, the clutch at 190,000 miles, the oxygen sensor, brakes, tires, and the faulty emergency brake recall item. I can't think of anything else. (oh, I did replace the serpentine and timing belts as a precaution at 120,000 miles). A FANTASTIC vehicle. This is my third Ranger and I will buy another.


Best Features

Great tailgate - easy to open and close. Runs smoothly, corners easily, good gas mileage (around 26), very reliable, good sound system, love the air conditioning.


Worst Features

Needs different window profile (replaced 3 windshields and got about 5 rock chips repaired) Need a lower speed on heater fan, redesigned driver mirror - car lights at night hit the mirror from behind and blind me. Angle bad for plugging anything into cigarette lighter.

Review

If someone had told me I'd be driving a pickup truck 10 years ago I would have thought they were crazy. This baby has moved my friends, transported refrigerators & freezers, helped me transport all that Home Depot stuff to renovate my house, picked up those 'finds' along the curb on garbage day, and much more with just regular oil changes and tune-ups. Only problem has been a need for fuel pumps every 2 years! Everything else is regular maintenance. I hate to sell it, but now I need an extended cab.


Best Features

Nice and simple - it's a truck. 5 speed transmission has never whimpered. Got it at only 89,000 miles and it has 179,000 on it today. Engine still cool. I love this truck.


Worst Features

Seats and stereo.

Review

I have never been a Ford owner but have
to say my Ranger is the best car ever.
In the past 10 years I have only
replaced brakes and tires once and not
even a tune up has been required. Only
problems have been with cruise control
(stopped working) and occasional
leaking gas near filler neck.


Best Features

Maintenance Free & Reliable 4.0 Liter engine Styling Brakes


Worst Features

tie downs should be included in bed of truck

1994 Ford Ranger Regular Cab XL 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB


Review

2.3L SB 4x4. I have 130,000 miles on
truck, been relatively reliable in the
9 years that I've had it, but not
totally perfect. Now burns about 1
quart of oil every 5000 or oil change,
not that big of a deal for a 9 year old
truck. New ABS brake module at 50k,
rusty radiator replaced at 100k,
electrical lights came on at 24K,
covered. The gas gauge stopped working
at around 70-80K. Good gas mileage,
just wish
that they continued a 4cyl ext cab.
version. overall, I have had very good
luck with my first domestic vehicle.
Would consider another one, but the new
4x4 gas mileage is very poor.


Best Features

good gas mileage, ford rust warranty, very good, they replaced a hood and tailgate for surface rust (Hawaii only) and repainted a couple of rust spots for free.


Worst Features

Good deal on a truck, some people have had back luck w/ their Rangers, I would recommend this particular truck, will prob. run over 200k.

Review

It has no interior space and no power
whatsoever. I think my lawnmower is
more powerful than this thing.


Best Features

The tailgate, only thing that you could actually rely on, off the whole truck.


Worst Features

More interior space for taller drivers (I am 6'2" tall), more powerful, more torque, and better clutch system.
