I bought it used. I knew I would be moving and so were my daughters and I wanted to have a truck. I am so happy I bought it and have more than gotten my money's worth from it. It has 180K miles and still going strong. The only problem I have is that I have grandkids and I can't put them in the back seats because it doesn't have whatever it is that needs to hook up the carseat. I take it on long trips all the time and have never had a problem. I also get really good gas mileage. I have had many different cars in my life(Im 57)but this is my favorite so far. I have to get a smaller car and I'm sad I have to sell it. All the cars I've looked at so far can't compare to this truck.

Put 110K miles on it over 5 years and never had a problem. Most of the miles were city miles and the clutch wore out at 165K. The mechanic did a compression check and said it could easily go another 50K before an overhaul. There were some off-road and harsh miles in there too. The 4 cylinder was always great on gas (I routinely averaged about 29 mpg) and was adequate to keep up with traffic but would not win a drag race.

Bought this truck used in '97 with
41,000 miles on it. So far the only
failure has been a leaking heater
valve, which only cost $15 at the
dealer and took me 30 minutes to
replace. No other mechanical
problems. The truck now has 161,000
and it's still going strong (1/3/03).
The only annoying thing with this truck
is the dome lights staying on for hours
when parked. Also, except for the fuel
gauge, all the lights in the instrument
panel are out. This is not easy to
fix. I'll probably keep this Ranger
until it dies and that could be a long
time from now.
A driver airbag and optional four-wheel antilock brakes are two of the features added to the safety equipment roster of the capable Ford Ranger. SuperCab models can now be had with a power driver seat.
