2003 Ford Ranger SuperCab 4dr SuperCab XLT Appearance Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

I do like this truck; it rides well, especially on the highway. One problem is that the rear is so light. It doesn't handle well if the rode is even slightly wet, never mind snow. The 3.0 engine is all right; a bit noisy, and the pick up is just OK. But i never had one single problem with this truck in 18,000+ miles. I would definitely get the 4x4 next time, but I got a great deal on this '03 leftover and couldn't pass it up.


Best Features

The interior is great. 40/60 bench is very comfortable, and controls are very accessible. I'm 6'3" and find the truck to have excellent head and leg room. a/c and heat. 4 doors. Color (bright red). Chrome package.


Worst Features

The super cab windows should be able to open or pop out. Larger rear view mirror. The cup holder/storage area on the floor could be designed differently and be more useful.

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


Review

This is my 3rd Ranger. I had a 1984, 1989, and now a 2003. I have had very little problems with any Ford Ranger including this one. I would buy another Ranger as my next purchase.


Best Features

More power than previous modles


Worst Features

Bench seat for 2nd set of seats instead of jump seats. Kids sometimes get banged around in stop and go traffic.

Review

Have had no problems at all with this vehicle since purchased, a comfortable 4X4 to drive on road (Expressway) or off. Great in snow without ballast in bed. Do get 22 mpg on expressway with cruise set at 69, 15 to 16 mpg around town and using 4 wheel drive. No problem recommending this vehicle to someone else. On main roads rides as well as my old Mercury Sable did but with a lot better visibility.


Best Features

The auto trans, AC, CD player, tilt wheel, cruise, and power windows make this vehicle seem more like a car than a truck but its nice to put it in 4 wheel drive and head out into the mountains when you want.


Worst Features

Wish it got a little better mileage around town.

Review

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.
