Review

I purchased the truck five months ago from the second owner and put on about four thousand miles since. With an automatic tranny, the 3.0 v-6 engine is very under powered and performs like a 4 cyl.. When I purchased the truck, the body looked in excellent shape. I noticed rust on the chasis, but it wasn't until later when I really checked it out, that I found severe rusting on the inside of the frame. This needed considerable cleaning and a rust killer application. Also, the body mounts were rusted severely and later cracked, requiring the bed to be replaced at a cost of over $2000. Checked on web and found others with same problem. Same mfg supplied Toyota truck frames, but Toyota recalled.


Best Features

Nice looks, inside and out. On the fly 4 wheel drive worked great!


Worst Features

The 3.0 is OK, but would suggest the larger V-6. Ford should recall all Rangers with these defective frames, as Toyota has done. (find details on web)

Review

Just bought this used truck, a 1999 Ford Ranger, having looked around at most other brands. I liked the size and build quality of the Rangers. This truck was very clean with low mileage and quite appealing to look at. However the 3.0 with auto trans is no performer and fuel consumption seems quite high so far. However I didn't buy it for performance and it suits my needs very well. Having read many reports on compact trucks I liked the Rangers score the best.


Best Features

Size, ride, interior comfort.


Worst Features

3.0 performance and fuel economy.

Review

Lots and lots of never ending electrical problems from year 1. Constantly needed tune ups about every other oil change.


Best Features

Comfy


Worst Features

Kill the electrical leprechauns and find some way to tighten up the timing
