More than expected
By kayman on


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


For sub $12K for a base XLT w/2.3
manual ride comfort handling, and
performance is better than expected for
an economy small truck. Seat comfort
is poor with no lumbar, engine very
buzzy. Can't imagine paying $20K+ for
the high end models.

Best Features

Interior finish, quiet ride, ,good handling, excellent mileage, good brakes. Excellent A/C in Arizona.

Worst Features

Buzzy engine, 2-3rd gear ratios not spaced properly, seat needs total redesign. Sound quality on upgraded radio needs major improvement and speed sensitive volume control.
