I love my Ford Ranger! I think the exterior as well as interior design are awesome. It is fun to drive and gets OK gas mileage. I just calculated mine today and I get 16.5 mpg. This is actually really good for a pickup truck. On the other hand, because it's such a small pickup truck, the ride is extremely rough and any pothole or uneven road will throw the truck around. The driver must keep their hands on the wheel at all times because unexpected bumps will send it off the road. I noticed this in two other Rangers that I drove, so I can say that they are rough riding trucks and not just from one experience. Overall I love my ranger and I think it is 10x better looking than Chevy S-10's!
I love the exterior design of my truck and the two tone seats give the interior a not-so-plain look. The gas mileage is unbeatable for a pickup truck.
I did not like the square grille that came stock on my truck, so I bought a stock honeycomb grille. Also the ride is very bumpy and the driver always has to watch the road to avoid big bumps in order to have a semi comfortable ride.
Vibration, while driving, back to
dealer several time to have repaired,
they blamed continental tires, but
would not replace with other brand. At
least 12 different tire put on vehicle.
Damaaged at dealers occured twice,
requiring sheetmetal and paint work.
Now with 12000 miles the transmission
has to be rebuilt. Will not buy any
other Ford products. This is the sixth
ranger I have owned and the last.
I needed more interior space so
purchased the Ranger extended cab. The
3.0 L V6 has plenty of power. Auto
transmission shifts smoothly. I'm
surprised at 2,400 RPM when cruising @
65 MPH on the highway. Thought it
would be closer to 2,000. Wish seat
could fold fwd. enough to access
behind seat space without having whole
seat slide fwd. Should be a good truck
overall. I do miss my F-150.
Comfortable and supportive cloth
seats. Good visibility every
direction. Transmission shifts very
I wish I had behind seat access
without the whole seat sliding
forward. Would also prefer
differential ratio for lower cruise
RPM. Recommend get differential lock.
This is the third Ranger I have had and
they just keep getting better. Good
performance,comfortable and fun styling.
I have NOT had one problem with any of
the Rangers to date. They are solid and
reliable. I have compared them to other
trucks, for ex: Toyata Tacoma and the
quality in craftmanship and the
solidness of the vehicle is superior to
that of the Tacoma which was really
tinny sounding. To date I have not
come across a truck in its class that
can truly give you more bang for the
Bring back the back side windows that
open and a little more horsepower on
the 3.0 V6
This 3.0 L engine runs ruff... When
you go to buy a truck take a GOOD LONG
test drive. It get's worse with more
millage! It's not too bad when the
engine is brand new! Now it just
shakes and dealer(s) say it's NORMAL!
Don't buy a ford, Crappy Quality
Sadly... Now I got to either dump
mine or suffer with it.
Looks GREAT!!! Nice and NEW! Starts
up great! RUNS CRAPPY!
TRY a diffrent engine. Let's get it
together ford. I think we should all
file a class action law suit...
