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.
Handling ease. Overall comfort.
Very quiet for type of vehicle, interior
as quiet as previous Buick was.
More oomph for 2.3 /4 cylinder engine.
Offer cloth seats instead of miserable
vinyl in XL models.
