2006 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr SuperCab 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Some minor dashboard build issues, especially the cover for the passenger airbag and the instrument panel -- only stopped getting loose via lock-tite. Seats are basic in the XLT model, but this is a small pickup; sufficient though. Initially I turned the cigarette lighter thinking it was the volume, several times switched it to 4X4 high trying to increase the volume as well, took a little getting used to. Base stereo is very good, no issues with any CDs. When I worked for Ford as a Service Writer people complained that it would not play certain CDs; must say I've had no problems, even going over good sized bumps in the road -- no skipping.

Favorite Features

Heater is beyond magnificent. 5 minutes down the road in sub-zero weather and you are warm, that's great when you live in Montana. Ride is very nice on asphalt. Very smooth and quiet.

Suggested Improvements

I wish the grille had mesh between the rungs similar to the "nostrils," octagonal inserts. Bugs, stones, BIRDS, and other damage will eventually hinder the radiator's ability to cool leading to other issues later during ownership.
