Like Appearance and Driveability

2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab SB
Highlights: Reliability and looks. Disappointments: Lack of power. Center consol breaks if you lean on it. Steering wheel pattern disappears with wear. Believe mileage suffers from 4w drive, but don't check that much.
Looks. Very nice styling. It has never let me down, but I don't use 4w drive much.
I hope Ford has fixed the awful center console design problem. I leaned on it once, and it broke. Cantilever design was badly executed. Also irritates me that the steering wheel pattern disappeared with wear, but it was even worse on our Toyota Avalon.
