Good Little Truck
By MacDisciple on


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


This is a good little truck that does what I ask of it. It is not comfortable, it is underpowered, and there are few amenities, but if you're looking for something inexpensive to do your light dirty work, it is a good choice. I wouldn't purchase it for daily driving or heavy towing.

Best Features

There are no features...maybe the two cup holders by the gear shift.

Worst Features

None; just keep it dependable and inexpensive.

I've got a 1994 Ford Ranger that a "friend" wore out the clutch on but as soon as it's back up and running full time it will be my daily driver when it rains. When dry I use a Goldwing though.) Aside from the cloth roof lining tearing and collapsing and the seat disintegrating, it's been as well maintained as possible and it replaces your cup holders with an ashtray meaning it has even less features. It's the toughest thing I've ever seen. (My 1970 Mustang Mach 1 was more fun to drive, but way less forgiving as regards maintenance.) It convinced me to go for a 2003 F-150 when we needed a family vehicle. Not bad for $10,000 on payments.
