Avoid the 2.3!
By superbird_71 on
1994 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab SB
Bought truck from original owner, now has 278,000 miles on it. Burns no oil. Idles rough, check engine light pops up at random, has electrical problems - if you turn the wipers on they don't turn back off. 2.3 has no power at all and gets lousy gas mileage - 20 mpg average, even with the five-speed. It has 8 incredibly hard-to-change spark plugs - why 8 spark plugs on the 4 cylinder? rear spring hangers rusted off, even though there is not a spot of rust on the body.
extended cab kinda nice, but i'm not sure how i'd ever get a normal sized person in the jump seats, body styling nice
Have to reach for the shifter - needs moved back toward the seat some. Cup holders are in a weird spot.
