Review

My new 2004 ford ranger is great for me
and very versatile. The ride is much
better than any of the other trucks i
test drove. Especially the
chevrolet s-10.

Review

Gas mileage not up to expectations, so
far about 22 (EPA rated at 24 city) for
mixed city/highway. When first started
engine revs way too high (2400-2500
RPM). This is annoying & cannot be good
for engine. As usual no satisfaction
from dealer service (they claim it's
all computer regulated and NORMAL).
It may be computer regulated, but I
doubt it's NORMAL.
Otherwise I like the Ranger, easy to
drive, handles nicely, but 4 cylinder
is anemic in top gear(s)..have to
downshift too frequently.
Probably should have gone for 3.0
liter V-6 and automatic (wouldn't have
to manually downshift).
Have only 600 miles on it, so too soon
to make any lasting judgments.


Best Features

Handling ease. Overall comfort. Appearance (styling). Very quiet for type of vehicle, interior as quiet as previous Buick was.


Worst Features

More oomph for 2.3 /4 cylinder engine. Offer cloth seats instead of miserable vinyl in XL models.
