2004 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT Appearance Rwd Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My second Ranger - I purchased this vehicle after test driving and/or renting Chevy/GMC, Nissan, Toyota, and others. None can compare to the Ranger for quality, performance, drivability, driver position, seat comfort, driver visibility, quiet cab, and pure "fun to drive". And after extensive shopping, the Ranger was the best value I found.


Best Features

Obvious build quality, seat comfort, visibility, drivability, solid road feel, quality ride, 6-disc CD, electric locks and windows, storage space in super cab, storage bins in doors, full analog guages, "smart" warning lights, remote entry, fit and finish, Paint quality


Worst Features

can't think of anything I'd improve - the Ranger is already top-of-the-game

Review

My third Ranger and by far the best to date. My mileage is 16.5mpg and I don't baby her either. Love her and plan on keeping this 4x4. Previous Rangers are as follows: '97 (2wd 2.3) had butt loads of rear axle problems and no umph. I gladly traded it in for an '02 (2wd 3.0) and really enjoyed it until the Nebraska winter; needed a 4x4.


Best Features

Love the flare-side, the '04 front end, and new HIGH back seats.


Worst Features

The only item on this truck that ticks me off is the fuse box cover, which some idiot relocated to the front passenger kick panel (on the floor). I had to 'tuck-tape' the panel from the inside because it kept popping off.

Review

I love my truck and wqouldn't trade for any car. I have the 4.0 liter which has plenty of power for its size and still has a pretty smooth ride for a truck. This truck still amazes me with its off-road capabilities (I go in some very deep mud when I haul grass to a recycling composte site, so I know what I'm talking about).


Best Features

I like the power of the engine, off road capabilitie, towing power and it has suprisingly good speakers for s truck. Sometimes people ask me if i got some new 10 inch subs or something, but its just the factory. I bet the tremor is even bettter


Worst Features

Improvements hmmmm I cant really think of any, maybe factory rino liners. I just hope they don't ruin the ranger by renaming it, or making it a larger truck like a dakota.
