This was the second Ranger I have owned and both were very reliable vehicles. If were not for the rough ride and the need for a larger vehicle for a new baby I would definitely hold onto it. I've never had any problems when driving it in the last six years (90,000 miles) and got my clear through college. That is if you don't count the time I had to go through the fuel system thanks to my wife putting diesel in my fuel tank on accident.
Reliable, easy to work on, comfortable seats, sporty
Rough ride (typical of a small truck), door ajar light stays on, gas mileage (can be improved with a bed cover)
