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.
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,
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.
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
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.
I have had my Ford Ranger XLT for almost
8 years and I have had very little
problems with it besides the routine
maintenance and up-keep. This truck is
dependable and very rugged. The power is
unbelievable in both city and freeway
traffic when it counts the most. This is
one of the best buys you can make if you
are looking for a vehicle to be able to
take tough driving conditions and last.
My favorite feature would have to be the
sliding back window...no wait, it's the
comfortable seating...ok no, it's the
extended cab. Yeah, definately the
extended cab. Lotsa room.
Instead of 2 small pull out chairs in
the back, put a bench seat. That would
