2003 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Review

Started out wanting a toyota P/u and
bought a ford.I test drove all small
trucks and the ford for price,fuel
economy,style and quality was my
choice.Previously owned a nissan and
toyota small truck.The ford truck has
caught up and surpassed the imports in
my mind. Insurance rates and dealer
service rates were cheaper too.I like
my ford pickup and would recommend it
highly.


Best Features

Drives well and very economical.


Worst Features

Better interior erognomics.

My 1995 ranger was a great truck, never
had a problem with it and drove it for
8 years. Bought a new 2003 and have had
nothing but problems, its been in the
shop over 7 times this year and two of
the times it needed to be towed in, i
drive for my job and cant afford to
have this many problems with this
truck, iam in the process of trading it
in on a new Toyota pick-up this
weekend, thanks John/seamars1@aol.com

2003 Ford Ranger 2dr SuperCab Edge Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

The Edge is a very precise handling
truck, due in large measure to its
suspension I suppose. Don't move the
steering wheel unless you want the
truck to change direction. In trade
for that precision handling, you
sacrifice ride comfort. It is a rough
ride, and the seat quality leaves a lot
to be desired, but then again, this is
a sport truck.
At 20000 the idler pulley went, and the
windshield is typical Ranger in that
anything harder than treesap will chip,
crack or break the glass. The fog
lights are not simply a coolness
thing. They work well. Easy in and
out, except the jumpseats, and easy to
clean interior.


Best Features

plastic floor throughout. ergonomic controls. abundant power. stable feel on/off road. excellent legroom. I am 6'4". three coffee cup holders.. all within reach. good MPG for V6, if you keep your foot out of it. Lots of plastic body.. limits loss to corrosion.


Worst Features

lower seat for tall drivers. telescoping steering wheel for tall drivers that have to have the seat all the way back. better MPG., but not at the expense of the power.

2003 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab XLT FX4 Off-Road 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

My Ranger is comfortable and fun to
drive. I get 20 miles to the gal. of
gas on the hiway and around 16 to 17 in
town.


Best Features

the performance is better than I expected. The interior layout is good. I especially like the doors to the bak space as both sides open and far enough that access is easy.
