FX4 Ford's worst truck built

2002 Ford Ranger XLT FX4 4dr SuperCab 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Since 2002 I have put in two master cylinders for the clutch. had the engine blow at 38,000 miles and got no help from Ford at 2,000 miles past warranty. Had poor performance and reliability. Replaced clutch pressure plate and slave cylinder at 43,000 miles due to the slave cylinder welding itself to spline. Also, I have had many problems with the electrical system. You are probably thinking that I beat on this truck and the answer is not at all. I drive less than 2 miles to work and 97% of drive time is on highways on trips around 500 miles. Unless you know how to work on cars plan on a lot of money in maintenance.Think about another brand!

Best Features

Not many favorites but the interior is nice, and the extras are also nice, i.e., extra skid plates and upgraded shocks.

Worst Features

Reliability! (Found On Road Dead).
