2002 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab (2.3L 4cyl 5A)

Review

I traded my 2001 Ranger in for my 2002 because I was going to be doing alot of driving and wanted an Auto Transmission. There are a few things that bug me about this truck it has the 3.0 V-6 if you step on the gas the engine rattles like crazy it sounds like it is going to throw a piston. The ride is horrible over any roads other than smooth highways. Has anyone else heard the racket from this engine in there truck? I can say however I haven't had any problems with the reliability though.

Favorite Features

I like the ruggedness of the truck, I don't have to worry that if i hit a curb that I am doing damage to my vehicle.

Suggested Improvements

Use more sound insulation, does it really cost money for this stuff? The 3.0 V-6 sounds like a diesel engine. I have learned to crank up the tunes to drown out the noise.
