2001 Ford Ranger 2dr SuperCab XL 2WD Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)

Review

My 2001 Ford Ranger extended cab 4x4 was pretty nice until it reached the 26,000 mile mark. At that point things started to go bad. It would not start one day. I had it towed to a local dealer. It started for them but they hooked it up to see what the problem was and found nothing wrong, $160.00. A few weeks later when I turned on the four wheel drive, the switch was bad. $500.00. I had used it 3 or 4 times. A few weeks later, again it would not start, fuel pump, $730.00. The bed must come off to replace this. This is when I gave up, and for the first time, bought a new Chevy truck. I waited 30 years to use my Sisters GM discount.

Favorite Features

It is a very nice looking truck. Um, did I mention it was a very nice looking truck?

Suggested Improvements

Get rid of the electronic switch for the 4x4. Electronics are only good if they work. And, make fuel pump access quicker and easier.
