2003 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT Appearance Rwd Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My experience has been good so far.I just have a few complaints......It seems to lean to the left (annoying) and I get a vibration on accell,it sometimes feels squirely on the highway,feathers tires way before it should (before 3,000 miles). hopefully the dealer will correct these issues.But,overall I am satisfied with my Ranger "POWERHOUSE".


Favorite Features

Some of my favorite features are...the strong 4.0 liter under the hood,the stereo system is awesome for a stock unit,the interior colors are perfect,and probably the coolest....this truck will literaly leave a chevy 4.3 vortec "IN THE DUST" trust me I have done it.


Suggested Improvements

Do something with the suspension,correct the problem that wears tires so fast!

2003 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab Edge Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My last truck was a Dakota and I was looking for one again. I test drove the edge and couldn't get it out of my mind. The Dakota ended up being out of my price range new- and I couldn't see going used if I could afford a new edge (with rebates). My sonic blue Edge is everything my old Dakota wasn't. I've only had it for 4 months but I am really impressed! I am confident of this truck's abilities under any conditions. If it keeps up its relibility for the nest 3-4 years I will no question buy another Ranger!


Favorite Features

The styling is awesome. The Chevy s- 10's all look thrown together just to impress- The edge looks good- and is all truck!


Suggested Improvements

I would like to see an 8 cyl model with crew cab in about 3-4 years so I can buy one at that time!

Review

Excellent truck


Suggested Improvements

It's a little light in the back and sometimes feels like it will slide off the road while going around a curve

2003 Ford Ranger 2dr SuperCab XLT Value 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Its a great truck thats meets a variety of peoples needs.


Favorite Features

The engine and tranmission are great. A lot of companies make enhancments that bring the V6 alive!


Suggested Improvements

Although in 2004 the style has changed on the inside a little. I feel the entire inside and out needs to happen. Maybe move up to the Dakota size. (Although the 4.0 will kill any 4.7 Magnum)
