1996 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB

Review

Original owner. Daily commute to work vehicle. Have hauled everything from topsoil and bedfull of mulch to furniture and big screen TV. Very dependable. Fun to drive. The 4cyl gets good gas mileage and is no slouch when paired with 5spd manual. Good feel to the tranny/clutch combo. Powerful a/c and heater. It is amazing how popular you are with friends when you are the one with the truck.

Ranger stands on Reliability

1996 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

I've now owned my Ranger for 4 years and through Minnesota Winters of -10 to -15 below zero at nights it always starts and runs very well. It has always been a very reliable truck. It has a nicely designed dash when speaking of controls for air,heat and they work well too.The real only negative is I have had off and on issues with my check engine light turning on and I have it checked and they can't make sense of it. I have had 3 different shops look into this issue and get nowhere.

I hate Check Engine lights

1996 Ford Ranger Splash 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB

Review

Other than the pesky check engine light coming on for the same reason for over 6 months, it's been a great truck, except when the light comes on for a vapor return canister over and over again, especially when you are trying to sell the vehicle. I will never buy a Ford again. I think I'll stick to the Toyota's for now.

This is a dream

Vehicle

1996 Ford Ranger STX 2dr Regular Cab 4WD SB

Review

This truck is sleek, snappy, and well built. The 4.0 is a true mix between power and economy, averaging about 20 to the gallon, and still more power than anybody buying a compact truck would need. Definatly buy Fords.

great truck

1996 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab SB

Review

I buoght this truck with 12,000 miles on it. It now has over 260,000 miles and is still running strong. The only problems I've encountered is a transmission problem caused by an oil change place leaving the fill plug loose. Very expensive repair, but trouble free since then. This truck is so reliable I find myself taking it for granted.
