1997 Ford Ranger Pickup -4 cyl.

This has been a very reliable vehicle
which is fun to drive and well built.
The Ranger is well designed and usually
relatively easy to work on. Changing
spark plugs and the PCV valve on the 4
cylinder engine tends to be
difficult.The clutch is responsive and
durable. The standard transmission is
easy to shift and predictable.Body and
hardware quality are good, as is the
layout of the instrument cluster. The
only repairs I have had to do (both
warranteed) were repair muffler
heatshield (broken welds) and replace
catalytic converter (corrosion). In
general, I am happy with the vehicle and
have had trouble-free driving since I
bought it new.
Clutch and standard transmission easy to
use. I like the instrument cluster layout.
The dashboard is essentially useless
with no real room for item storage.
Exhaust systen could be more durable.
