2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

Highlights: Reliability and looks. Disappointments: Lack of power. Center consol breaks if you lean on it. Steering wheel pattern disappears with wear. Believe mileage suffers from 4w drive, but don't check that much.


Best Features

Looks. Very nice styling. It has never let me down, but I don't use 4w drive much.


Worst Features

I hope Ford has fixed the awful center console design problem. I leaned on it once, and it broke. Cantilever design was badly executed. Also irritates me that the steering wheel pattern disappeared with wear, but it was even worse on our Toyota Avalon.

2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

I inherited it from an elderly relative who bought it brand new. When I got it it had only 27K miles on it. It's noisy, it looks and feel cheap both inside and out. The fuel milege is terrible. If I drive it 65 I can squeeze 17mpg out of it. The electric door locks quit at 30K miles and the transmission gave up at 33K miles. Now they want $3K to put in a replacement. when I asked if the new transmission would last longer than the old one, the dealer just shrugged. I can't beleive what a piece of crap this truck is. Ford should be ashamed!


Best Features

AC works well.


Worst Features

Where to start. The entire running gear is junk. This vehicle should get 20 mpg at highway speds, not 15. The transmission is only good for use as a boat anchor.

2000 Ford Ranger XL 2dr Extended Cab 4WD SB


Review

All in all, a pretty good truck. By no means the best in the mid- sized/compact class. The truck is a lot of fun to drive, and gets the job done. The seats are comfortable, the extended-cab is functional. The towing/payload capacities are about as good as anything else in its class. I have used this truck for everything. Its reliability is great, never had a problem. The interior design is very plain, nothing special at all. The exterior is nice, but again, nothing special. The quality is good, everythings sturdy, its a Ford. The performance and drive are great. It handles turns well, breaking is nice, acceleration is suprisingly good. The fuel economy is terrible, 14 MPG!


Best Features

4WD, cab space, sound system, handling, ABS.


Worst Features

Gas mileage! EPA estimated is 15 city, around 20 highway. In reality, it gets 13-14 City and 18-19 Highway (Well maintained). A full-sized gets better gas mileage. And keep in mind, this is only a V6! Would also like to see improvements in the design, it needs an update.

2000 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Extended Cab 4WD Stepside SB


Review

Bought truck at 60000 miles. Looked and ran good but immediately ran into trouble, while on trip left front abs brake failed. Cost 550 bucks at dealer for new rotor pads and wheel bearing because sensor is part of the bearing. 2 years later same scenario on other side. Also front axle stared growling, haven't fixed that yet, as need another 12oo bucks for this. Now at 98000 miles relegated to only driving in winter, as it is now a carportqueen. Also inside box rotting out, although plastic outside looks like new.


Best Features

Interior nice. Looks good externally, handles nice. Good off road.


Worst Features

Why not make the whole box of plastic? And why re-engineer abs system for simpler and cheaper repair
