Don't buy this truck
By Ford POS on
Vehicle1997 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab Stepside SB
ReviewPurchased in 99 with 22k miles. While
it has never broken down once, the
smaller problems are really annoying.
Interior lights will not go out. Truck
will hardly run on 87 octane so we use
93 always. Has the small 4 banger which
has 8 spark plugs, only 4 of which I
can get to without removing the intake
manifold. Rear suspension design is so
poor that a moderate size bump will
throw the truck into the other lane.
Everyone I know with this truck has
these same problems. Now at 104K miles,
it needs new front wheel bearings. CD
player quit at 35k. I don't understand
why Edmunds has this truck in its "Top
Best FeaturesStyling. Reliable drivetrain.
Worst FeaturesA recall on the interior light issue. Complete redesign of the rear suspension.
