1997 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab SB


Have owned my truck for 6 years now;
have had only a few minor electrical
problems (display on digital clock is a
little funny, interior lights delay a
couple of seconds before going off upon
door closing). A/C continues to work
well. At 68,000 miles, still have the
original brake pads and shoes. Sound
system is also very impressive for a
truck, as is the interior design. The
truck still rides like a car - no wierd
rattling noises or squeeks are present.

Best Features

Sound system, instrument cluster, 3 power points, cloth seats, reliability.

Worst Features

Minor electronic problems with module (known problem, nothing that affects the drive system), standard engine a wee bit small for this truck.
