Excellent truck

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


Review

I traded in a 1990 Ford Ranger 4x4. This truck seems to be much wider then my previous truck. I have never had an automatic before, so it has been hard getting used to that. If I had it to go over again, I would buy a manual transmission. Other then that, it is a great truck.


Favorite Features

The look is great. It looks like a 4x4, it drives smooth. The 6CD player is great.


Suggested Improvements

The "middle" seat is horrible. It is very uncomfortable for the person sitting in the middle. There is no way for 3 adults to ride comfortably.
