Long Term Review (8 Yrs)
By jfleenor on
Vehicle2005 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)
ReviewI have had the Ranger for 8 years, and it has NEVER been in the shop.
1 set of brakes and 1 set of tires. Regular maintenance.
Driven from CA to TN 4 times.
CA to AZ countless times, towing 2 waverunners. Last week, the heater controll valve broke, but that's the only problem ever.
Interior/exterior still looks new, except for someone backing into it 2 weeks ago.
New complete rear bumper/Taillights ($260).
In body shop next week (minor damage). Still gets 26 mpg on the hwy.
Not a luxury car, but it's one of the best vehicles I've owned. Thought about selling it, but love it too much.
Going to add custom upgrades and drive it for another 8 yrs. See the rest of post for more info.
Best FeaturesPlanned additions: Crown Suspension Kit w/gas shocks, 17" Mustang GT wheels w/225x50x17 tires, Cold air intake, front/rear Roush Racing sway bars, TransGO AT shift kit (smoother/positive shifts), cat back exhaust, after market cruise control (did not come equipped from factory), new bed liner.
