2002 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab (2.3L 4cyl 5A)
I bought this truck new and barely had any problems during the 13 years i owned it.
I performed regular maintinence as suggested and drove this truck to 200,000 miles until someone rearended me.
During those 200k, i replaced the MASS AIRFLOW SENSORE at 120k, the coil pack at 178k, fan clutch at 180k and manual transmission broke at 185k (i should have never tried to drive from NJ to New Orleans...too far for and older truck with so many miles) and the plastic intake manifold at 190k.
So besided breaks and tires, i drove it for 13 years and only had 4 repairs. not bad... All options worked as they should from new until it was totaled. I WOULD BUY ANOTHER!
Great on gas, ICE COLD air cond.
I hated the location of the cup holders, but that was corrected in new models.
