2004 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT Appearance Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

My Ranger is a 3 liter, 5 speed auto,
3.73 rear axle ratio with limited slip
rear axle. I have never been stuck
even with many off-road miles. Gas
mileage is l9/24. Nice ride and the 5
speed A/T is smooth.


Best Features

Pleasing and quiet interior. The AM/FM/CD radio is high value. Enjoyable to drive.


Worst Features

Add about 20 hp to the 3 liter V6. Add option to "delete rear jump seats".

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.
