2009 Ford Ranger SPORT 2dr SuperCab Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I have had no problems with this truck at all and I have 26,000 miles on it now, runs great and ride great! I owned a s-10 with a 4.3 v6 and it was not half the truck as the ranger. This rides and feels like a bigger truck!


Best Features

Price, price, price, I got mine for $4500.00 under invoice. I payed $16,800.00 great deal! And the truck looks great too! Cool truck!


Worst Features

Keep making them, I will buy another

2009 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Regular Cab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

For a car that's built recently, I can't say how my Ranger was an improvement over cars of decades past. Yes it was cheap, only reason I got it was because it had the max rebate. Then again cheap price = poor design, cheap quality, cheap workmanship, etc. And worst it came off the lot with several problems which one of which became debatable if it was "under warranty" with the 2 yr/24000 miles contract.


Best Features

Hmm. Still thinking. It's a new car.


Worst Features

Better design to keep up with modern living. Better mileage (LOL) Truck feels like a car that was made in the 80s. Dealerships should be more trustworthy (good luck with that too)

2009 Ford Ranger XL 2dr SuperCab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Looks good and drives good. After 6,000 miles developed any annoying rattle in the passenger side of the dash and the dealer could not find the source. Worst part was that after 5-6 months the vehicle started rusting. A couple of spots on the body, through the paint and also some painted spots under the bed and finally inside the wheels. I do live at the beach, but my 1996 Jeep Cherokee, which was 8 years old when I moved there, took 3 to 4 years to start rusting and my girlfriend lived in the Keys for 20 years and never had issues with her 3 Hondas. This is ridiculous, especially since Ford claims that their quality is even with Honda and Toyota. Warranty doesn't cover this, of course.


Best Features

The vehicle's looks and the fact that it sits up higher than a car, as all trucks do.


Worst Features

Put primer on all of the paintable surfaces, so it will not rust. This is not an unreasonable request! Other car makers do it. Also sometimes the truck had trouble shifting into high gear at 40 to 45 mph. Sometimes it would shift okay and other times not...fix this too.

Review

this is my 6th ford ranger and although it is i fun little truck it rattles like crazy around the drivers door.After 25 trips to tyhe dealer the warranty is off and now they wont even return my calls. its a shame that Ford cannot control after sales service. This will probably be my last Ford because of this issue.

2009 Ford Ranger FX4 Off-Road 4dr SuperCab 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Can't go wrong with the ranger, especially in the FX4 version. The styling is nice for a truck of its price range, power is quite decent and the upgrades I've got add quite a bit (chrome step bars, tailpipe and mirrors). All around good vehicle, easy to maneuver in the city.


Best Features

Most everything, except...


Worst Features

Seems to have trouble doing sharp turns in 4X4 mode, not in 4x2 however.
