This is a good basic reliable compact
truck. I own the 4 cylinder 2.3L model
with a five speed.
For the higher elevations of Colorado
its a little underpowered, but around
town and the plains its fine.
A good quality truck.
I bought my 1996 Ranger a little over a year ago with 113000 miles on it and i have since brought that total up to 143000 miles. The truck has required very little work, other that the basics like oil changes. In fact, the only thing i've had done to it, that was of any consequence, was the replacement of two belts and a tensioner. I would recomend this little truck to anyone and i am saddened that it has come time for a new car. I hope that the next owner enjoys it as much as I have.
Flip-top sunroof, exterior design (eliminator package with custom ground effects and spoiler which was all factory) and automatic transmission
Well its a tough little truck, i've
gone everywhere in my little ranger,
and i gotta say i love it and i
wouldn't have anything else, its a
good starter truck. I wish it would
last me forever, but sadly all good
things must come to an end, i hope
thats far off for my little ranger.
I have throughly tried to beat the
tires off this truck. It won't quit.
The only things I have had to replace
were oil,oil filters, sparkplugs,
thermostat. Which as anyone knows are
parts that wear out normally. I
remimber when drove it by my fiends
house, his dad, remarked after what i
have put that truck through it must
havew been a wensday job.
Small, agile, quick at times. Interor
is all in reach.
