ReviewI had my Ranger for 5 1/2 years. Only
minor problems such as egr sensors,
vacuum lines, and replacing the hubs.
Have 112000 miles on and for the most
part the truck is reliable. I squeeze
out any where from 18 to 20 mpg on
consistent basis. My only complaints
about it are: rides like a lumber
truck, engine is breathless at highway
speed, seats are terribly
uncomfortable, autolocking hubs are a
joke-replaced mine with manuals, and
the brakes are really grabby when there
is a lot of moisture in the air. The
paint has stood up to time and use very
well and overall I think the Ranger is
a entry level vehicle for young buyers
who are looking for a reliable
Best FeaturesNothing real particular except the light up cruise buttons and I like the dash layout. The HVAC system is awesome! A/C freezes you out, which I like.
Worst FeaturesRanger needs to be a little bigger and with more power. Ford needs to completly redesign, re-engineer the Ranger. Nothing has really changed between '97 and '04 except for minor body work, powerplant, interior, and suspension upgrades.
