1996 Ford Ranger Extended Cab XL 2dr Extended Cab SB


Review

This was the second truck I have ever owned. I liked the size until now when I need a bigger truck because of family. I have had multiple issues with the Transmission, starting at 98,000 miles. Door handles broke at 120,000. Rear Tailgate handle broke around the same time. Over all a good truck.

Get a better Trans and re-design the handles so they are more durable.

Review

I've owed this vehicle new from dealership; driven it hard and regular. I've never experienced a problem - Just semi-regular maintenance. I'd buy it again. The only thing I'd change is adding a console.


Best Features

My favorite feature is the vehicle's reliability - like a best friend, it's always been there and ready when I needed it.

Review

I love my truck. I bought it as a
powered wheelbarrow for hauling stuff
to the dump and from Home Depot. So I
bought one w/ very few creature
comforts, but the thing is very
comfortable to drive and great for long
trips. Very comfortable seats for
stock ones.


Best Features

The solid feel of the truck.


Worst Features

The cupholders w/ their snap in size adjustments are poorly designed. The 4L engine is small, but I knew that going into it.

Review

My first American-made truck purchase.
Reliable truck. No major problems.
Mechanically good. No rust. Good
value for price paid. Has met all
expectations.


Best Features

It's a pickup - good for hauling items from home depot, mulch, etc. Extended cab is very handing. Good if you need to squeeze an extra person in (though only recommended for short trips). Also good for extra inside/dry storage.


Worst Features

If you need power/hauling cabability/off-road go for the 4WD or larger engine. This is an entry level pickup only. As with most trucks, not the best in snow.
