2002 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr Regular Cab LB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


This truck has the WORST manual transmission I've ever driven. Shifting from 1st to 2nd is impossible to do without forcing/grinding the stick into position. Shifting down from 3rd to 2nd IS impossible unless you are travelling at less than 5 mph.
I took the truck into the dealer to have them check the transmission. They said it is normal.

I've had several manual transmission vehicles in my life, and this is the absolute worst.

Best Features

The inside of the truck is rather comfortable and nicely laid out.

Worst Features

Ford must improve the manual transmission and the 4-cylindar is a waste.
