1998 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB

Review

I have primarily riven Ford products for the last 34-plus years (25 total vehicles). I am increasingly disappointed in the crap Ford provides. I rebuilt the ac twice before 40k miles. The 5-speed auto tranny slips in low gear, the intermittent wipers work when they want to and it won't stay in 4 wheel drive mode. This vehicle is 5 years old and has less than 50k miles, has never been abused and I am a self- admitted maintenance nut. On top of all of this, throw in those wonderful self- destructive Firestone Wilderness AT tires (for which I never received the promised reimbursment from Ford) and you know why I currently drive a Nissan!

Best Features

Fog lights.

Worst Features

I have so many problems I wouldn't know where to start. How about building vehicles with the kind of quality that the Europeans and Japanese have exhibited for years?
