I had a "98 4 cylinder manual Ranger before this. It had 135k on it but decided to purchase another Ranger after test driving other brands. This truck drives tight, very GOOD suspension. Nice engine response. Extended cab & CD player. 15" tires are an improvement MPG is around 20-23. A main reason to buy was that my wife said the seats were comfortable to her back (she is picky) & she could view the road well.
Tight suspension & handling. Engine response. Extended cab. CD player. Secure feeling with improved sound-deadening.
Doors stick a little. Tight fit getting into extended cab area. Seat backs need to be pushed back after sliding whole seat forward.
