My Ranger is a dependable every-day
vehicle for the past 5+ yrs (I bought it
used). Aside from normal wear-and-tear
(oil changes, belt replacement, front
brakes, tires) the only moneys it's cost
me is when the stick mysteriously didn't
want to work anymore. Someone at work
said the magic words "hydraulic clutch."
So I spent $1.19 on a can of fluid and
filled the clutch reservoir. Good as
new. I may buy a rice burner for the
daily commute to save on gas, but this
little truck isn't leaving my possesion
until the wheels fall off.
Good fuel economy (for a truck); cargo &
towing capacity are great for something
less than a full-size; dependable
Improved torque and horsepower (on 4
cyl. models; my 3.0L is good)
