2001 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT 4WD Flareside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)

Review

Rolled the same vehicle twice. Although I'm still alive to talk about it (the roof is capable of withstanding a rollover), the vehicle is way too light in the rear. Even with sandbags, the vehicle is too prone to losing traction, breaking loose and rolling over while skidding. Although there is plenty of important legroom, the ground clearance and approach/departure angles are great (allowing you to go places with it), the body is too light and there's no weight and traction in the rear end. Ford really needs to redesign the Ranger to overcome those major setbacks.

2001 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XL 2WD Styleside SB (2.5L 4cyl 5M)

Review

Purchased used with 7500 mi in 2003 for $7000. Ride is harsh and some bumps will cause the rear end to jump. However, I am extremely please with the gas mileage that has increased from mid- 20's at purchase to 31 mpg at last fillup. Have owned the truck for 14 months with absolutely no maintenance problems. Very dependable -- this summer did a trip from VA to WI and back with no mechanical problems. The ranger is the best looking little truck out there. Will consider another one in the future.

Review

Its been an overall solid truck. Problems have been: sensor replacments, wildly inaccurate fuel gauge (these things have been around for 100 years, think they could get it right?), slight pinging when a/c is on and the power windows jump like hell when putting them down.

Review

Have had the truck for three years now and no problems have come. I get 27 mpg with a mix of city and highway. The only thing that was ever serviced on the truck have been a set of warped rotors from me driving too fast. I installed a Tv/nav system in the dash along with full audio and sound insulation. The stock tires were just replaced at 58,000 miles but still had tread left on them. In my opinion this is the best handling, most fuel efficient and most practical small pick up currently on the market.

At 77k I have replaced the trans twice as well as the brakes twice. Great looking truck and the few times I have taken it off raod it has performed great. I can't see myself buying another one.

Bought it used from Carmax to use as second vehicle with more hauling capability. Have sold primary auto now (Mercedes SUV) and find the daily driving of the Ranger is very satisfying. Great acceleration. Nice looks. Good handling and brakes.
