I bought it thinking it was great from all the great reviews it had well after new sensors, computer, fuel injectors ,fuel pump,exhaust heaters,O2 sensors ,Brakes,calipers,rotors,The only thing i haven't had to replace is the radio it still sounds as good as when i purchased this LEMON, will never purchase a ford again!
The radio,but try to get your cd out it wont let go
It's a truck & rides like one. I can live with that. Terrible gas mileage. Average 19 mpg under the best circumstances. Wish it was better. Considering trading it in for a VW or something that gets some mileage.
Yes, the Ranger is an old design, but it's also a good design. This is a truck, not a luxury car, and it is not meant to be a luxury car. However, it does have the most comfortable seats I have ever experienced--they actually support a guy's shoulders, which almost no other vehicle's seats do. I like the style, particularly the two tone cloth seats which give the truck a sporty look. Engine performance is adequate, and seems very quiet at cruise. A fine truck, and thousands less w/ Ford incentives than any Japanese brand truck.
This is the first brand new vehicle that I have bought and I love every bit of it.
My favorite feature is the fact that the sun visor comes low enough that it blocks the sun but does not interfere with my ability to see when a stop light turns green.
I would really like to see a better traction control on the road both when it is wet and dry. I know it's a truck and all but if the ride was a little smoother I think it would improve the overall Ranger experience.
