2002 Ford Ranger Edge 2dr Regular Cab (3.0L 6cyl 5A)
Nice looking truck - one problem I have
noticed, and it is wilh all 2000 Ford
vehiles. The outside weatherstripping
around the windows has "mildew" growing
in/on it - every single Ford I see of
this age has this problem. I keep my
vehicles immaculate, so I consider this
to be a nuisance. The truck is fun to
drive, and with an overdrive
transmission gets pretty good fuel
mileage. Plugs are easy to change, as
is oil, filter and air filter.
Some "squekiness" on start up - sounds
like a belt slipping, but I can't
figure out where the slip is. Biggest
problem - OE tires are junk - Goodyear
which develop knots in them just for
fun, I guess. Ride is good.
