2002 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
Good to drive and economical.
Worksmanship under hood is
unimpressive and not well thought
out. Hoses and vacuum lines are
routed very poorly - not likely to be
reliable. Sheetmetal edges are poorly
finished and sharp. 2.3L engine and 5
speed has pep but no power, the price
of good fuel economy (Ford 6 cyl are
guzzlers while 4 cyl sip fuel).
Well done interior. Solid road feel
and stability. More standard
equipment that competitors for the
money. Good value if it is reliable.
Need to improve design and attention
to detail, qauality, and neatness for
mechanical and electrical systems,
hoses, and wiring. Left pedal parking
brake should be changed to a right
handed pull handle.
