Ten years later, still going strong
By Kiwanda on


1993 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB


Bought new in spring '93 and it's only
at 96K now;still looks/runs about as
good as new. Beyond regular maintenance
we've done no repairs other than replace
a cracked clutch slave and deal with the
poorly-designed parking brake. All the
heat shields have been removed after
they started to fall off (or rattle)
over the years. Note: this V6 burned
about 1 qt oil every 1,500 miles since
it was new-- Ford claimed this was
"within spec" and it's never really
changed. Re-torquing the intake manifold
bolts seemed to help for a while, but it
certainly didn't stop the oil use.

Best Features

Fun to drive, comfortable, long bed great for hauling/camping. Good MPG.

Worst Features

Hopefully they've fixed the bad parking brake and the silly plastic shift rail plugs that led to so many transmission failures. Oil use and intake manifold blow-by have likely been fixed.
