I got my ranger in December of 2002,
it's a 2003 fx4. Rangers I've had (all
new): 1987, 1990, 2000, and now the
2003. The only problem I've had with
this truck is the transmission was
leaking after about 1200 miles. The
dealer replaced a good portion of it,
has had no problems since. This is a
solid, fun to drive truck. I have yet
to do any serious "wheeling" in it, but
have been happy with it's handling in
deep snow. I'd recommend this truck.
The operable back doors are a nice
feature. Also the interior is well done.
Waiting for the bigger Ranger still.
The f150 is more truck than I need.
