1997 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab SB

Review

The Ranger is one the best vehicles I have ever owned. We are keeping it for our 13 year old to take over when he's 16. He can't wait! Other than usual maintenance and changing tires, nothing major has gone wrong. My father-in-law borrows it all the time for anything he has to haul. The 4 liter engine has great acceleration in city traffic. I would recommend a Ranger to anyone in the market for a mid-sized truck.

Favorite Features

Four high on the fly. The first 2 years I owned this truck I lived in Idaho, and this feature saved my bacon a few times.

Suggested Improvements

I know it's a truck and that mine is four-wheel drive, but it would be nice if the ride were a little smoother. On some paved roads I felt every seam and bump.
