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


Not to satisfied with my first Ford.
Hood was way out of aligned when I got
it. Got only 400 miles to a tank. I
was hoping for at least 420. Sheet
Metal is a small gauge. I can feel
the hood actually buckle when I wax.
Also the paint is poor quality.
Interior is outstanding. Seats are
comfortable. Lots of cup holders, and
the cup holder can hold a coffee mug
with a handle. Instrument cluster is
laid out in a good way. Do not like
rotary headlight control. Engine very
weak in 4th gear. If want to pass,
cut off your AC, pop it in 3rd, and
hope. Step rear bumper too small.

Best Features

XLT chrome package. Sound system rocks. Anti-theft security system.

Worst Features

Go to a 2.4 liter. My 90 Nissan can blow this truck away. get rid of headlight rotary switch and Put it on the steering colum.
