1997 Ford Ranger Splash 2dr Extended Cab Stepside SB


I have owned many vehicles, including
ultra-luxury models, and this is the
most reliable, most comfortable vehicle
I have ever owned. I purchased it from
the dealer with 15000 miles on it and
the only problem it has ever had was
the adjustment switch for the driver
side o/s mirror failed and was replaced
under warranty. The 4.0 engine has
enough power for any situation and gets
reasonable economy for its size.
Handling is superb. My next vehicle
will probably be a Ford SUV, as I will
be needing a little more room.

Best Features

Handling, appearance, comfort.

Worst Features

Visibility could be improved with a slightly narrower door post and larger rear window. Newer models have corrected the difficulty with entry to the jump seat area by adding two rear- hinged rear doors.
