1998 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab SB


Best way to rate this "Fixed Or Repaired Daily" truck is to list the problems: knocking-pinging on hot days going up hills, steering rack assembly (warranty), steering gear ($500), alternator ($250), instrument panel lights ($50), right side HEAD ($1,800), heater diverter valve ($75), leak through third taillight ($75), arm rest (haven't bothered to fix yet) -- all in less than 90,000 miles. Latest problem - potential bad lifter.

Best Features

This truck has been reliable regarding starting and running for the most part. Fuel economy for a V6 4.0 has been OK (20 mpg highway). My favorite feature is the Line-X liner that was installed aftermarket.
