2002 Ford Ranger Edge Plus 4dr SuperCab (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
First of all, the truck is beautiful,
and I still think it is one of the
classiest looking trucks on the road.
But when I first got it, I took it
back to the dealer for a check because
the fuel economy was about 1/2 what
was advertised, and there was a
noticably rough idle. The service
manager put a fuel meter on it and we
went for a ride. He claimed the fuel

idle was normal. Three more trips back
to the shop and I gave up. Other than

Four doors makes the rear seat are
very accessible. Flare side makes the
truck classy looking.
Smooth out the idle and be truthful
about fuel economy ratings. Put tires
that last on the truck.
