2008 Ford Ranger XLT 4dr SuperCab Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)

Review

Since delivery the transmission has not functioned properly. It's been to the dealer 4 times in 3500 miles. Upon delivery shift from "R" to "D" and it might take 3 seconds to engage. When it did finally engage it slammed so hard that I thought something might break. Same would happen at a stop light. Dealer's made progress. The big bang's gone, but it still disengages when decelerating at slow speeds so then when you accelerate it bumps back into gear. Rear passenger supercab door is bent and that's why it doesn't close properly. It's again back to the dealer to see if they can fix the tranny and the door. This is my 7th Ford vehicle and the first with any problems. Yuck!

Favorite Features

Interior design. The seats are firm but comfortable. The ride is as expected.

Suggested Improvements

Better gas mileage. More torque. A transmission that works.
