By RJ2 on


2003 Ford Ranger 4dr SuperCab Edge Plus 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Can't direct cold air to floor, poor
fit & finish (e.g. uneven gaps,
underspray behind gas door, around rear
door hindges, under hood, engine pings,
sick exhaust note, sliding window
rattles & ticks (makes me crazy), tach
buzzes at specific RPM range, right
rear door rattles, turn signal
cancelation mechanism is defective on
nearly all Fords (prevents operation
when wheel is at 10:00 & 2:00
positions, premature cancelation,
fights driver), hood prop rod tears up
paint on underside of hood when
serviced by dealer (needs protective
cap), dealer tears up wheels when
removing center cab due to poor design.

Best Features

Pricing and rebates, 4.0L performance, models w/rubber floor mats instead of carpet.

Worst Features

Allow AC to be directed to floor, fix turn signal mechanism, fix engine ping, note, fix interior rattles (sliding rear window, tach, rear door), add MP3 support to all CD Players, fix fit & finish problems.
