I got this truck for my 18th birthday/ graduation gift. i love it i drove a 95 s10 for a year befor loved the s10 but the ranger has more power. the only thing i miss is towing we have 2 seadoos together they are about 2300 lbs full of gas the truck pulles them good but not fun going up the boat ramp. only thing i wish is that is was the x cab im 5.10 and my head hits the roof and the seat rubs the back window. 5 speed trans could shift better. i get about 21mpgs doing 80 no ac with ac i get like 18 i miss the 20 gallon tank the s10 had. i have put mine through hell and just keeps going change the oil every 3500 miles only problem i had is the thermostat ($150) other then that fine.
easy to reach everything on the dash
never let me down
1st truck I ever owned. Bought to make trips to Home Depot. I love the truck, never had any problems. I've loaded this truck to its limit with mulch and fertilizer and the 4 cylinder engine had plenty of power.
Nice radio, A/C works fine.
Little more room behind the seats in standard cab. Longer service interval, 5,000 miles between oil changes too soon.
Bought this truck as my first new car.
Best compact pickup, overall am very
pleased with everything. Opt for a 6
cylinder, cause the 4 has no power and
lacks great gas mileage. Paint quality
isnt very good either. But am overall
pleased with the vehicle is fun to
drive and looks great with the XLT
Appearance package(chrome grill and
wheels). Still too new to tell overall
Chrome wheels and grill. Interior
scheme, with platinum faced gauges and
black seats with gray inserts match the
silver paint great.
Exterior Paint, fuel economy, and
overall build quality.
I was envolved in a bad collision. A
lady in a civic tried to cross the
street while I was doing 55mph...So?
The Civic is gone to automobile
heaven, and that truck was fixed and
still runs great! Just a small bend in
the frame! This truck is stout, but
get the 4.0 because my 3.0 is lacking
Looks inside and out.
The 3.0 needs more than 150bhp.
