2001 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XL 2WD Styleside SB (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Purchased used with 7500 mi in 2003 for
$7000. Ride is harsh and some bumps
will cause the rear end to jump.
However, I am extremely please with the
gas mileage that has increased from mid-
20's at purchase to 31 mpg at last
fillup. Have owned the truck for 14
months with absolutely no maintenance
problems. Very dependable -- this
summer did a trip from VA to WI and
back with no mechanical problems. The
ranger is the best looking little truck
out there. Will consider another one
in the future.


Best Features

Great gas milease with the 2.3L four 5spd.


Worst Features

Get rid of the vinyl bench seat and replace it with a cloth model that has a center armrest. Do something about the axle jumping around on bumps. It can be scarey, even when expected and is unwarranted in an otherwise appealing vehicle.

2001 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab Edge Plus 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Its been an overall solid truck.
Problems have been: sensor replacments,
wildly inaccurate fuel gauge (these
things have been around for 100 years,
think they could get it right?), slight
pinging when a/c is on and the power
windows jump like hell when putting them
down.


Best Features

cd player, ground clearance, low end torque


Worst Features

better seating arrangement in rear, higher quality plastic bed rails, fix the window and fuel gauge problems

2001 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XLT 2WD Flareside SB (2.5L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Have had the truck for three years now
and no problems have come. I get 27
mpg with a mix of city and highway.
The only thing that was ever serviced
on the truck have been a set of warped
rotors from me driving too fast. I
installed a Tv/nav system in the dash
along with full audio and sound
insulation. The stock tires were just
replaced at 58,000 miles but still had
tread left on them. In my opinion this
is the best handling, most fuel
efficient and most practical small pick
up currently on the market.


Best Features

The interior is so simple and useful. Everything works so well on it. The gas mileage is a major bonus when the price is hovering over $2 a gallon and i get 375 miles from about 14 gallons.


Worst Features

I hated the black gauges so i replaced them with some glow gauges. The hooks in the bed were not good at all for hauling motorcycles so I had to replace those in favor of some beefy steel hooks.
