2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB
I bought this truck used in 2005 with a 3.0LV6, with 68K miles on it. It provided me with a 4x4 at an affordable price for a Highschool student. Now, two years later, I have 86K miles and have had nothing go wrong with it other than normal wear and tear. For the price, you are getting a well-designed vehicle inside and out! Definitely a must have for any highschool student that has a parent willing to help them finance. Definitely not for anyone who needs to do heavy hauling or drives more than one other person in it though.
A solid, well-designed interior and exterior, especialy for the price. Seats are comfortable, ride is smooth for a compact truck, and engine is reliable.
3.0L V6 needs more horse power! I have to floor it to reach speeds past 50mph. Also, needs better gas mileage, I'm only getting 15mpg if I'm conservative. I should be able to get outstanding fuel economy if i'm giving up horsepower.
