In January 2001 I reutrned a 1999 4x4 Ranger to the dealer. Although I did not have any problems with the Ranger it was under-powered, noisy and very stiff riding.
I looked to replace the Ranger with a Ford F150 extended Cab 4x4. However, the length would take every available inch in my garage. In additon the test drive felt awkward.
I then turned my attention to the Tacoma and Tundra. In short the power, size and smoothness of the 4.7 litre won me over.
Service has been fantastic and quick. The only warranty problem I had was a split leather seat which was promptly taken care of. Overall I'm very pleased
Smooth, quiet engine
Not enough leg room for passengers in back.
More padding on captain's seat
