2004 Ford Ranger SuperCab 4dr SuperCab Tremor Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5A)


Review

Only 7500 miles but so far very reliable. No dealer nightmare stories to relate. Fuel rated at 18 to 23 but 14 to 21 mpg is more like it. 16 in.wheels a big plus, 3.0L plenty of pep. I looked at S-10 and Tacoma but for the cost verses what you get, no contest. Lots of pros but only negative would be fuel mileage. I am sold on it so far.


Best Features

510 watt factory stereo is unreal. 16 inch wheels.


Worst Features

Fuel mileage.

2004 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab Edge Rwd Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I bought my 2003 Ranger in August of
Last year and it has been a superb
truck, I only have had one problem with
it but it was also -30 degrees, and it
started hard and didnt idle, which the
dealer said was unfortunate but normal
and the replaced some parts and has
never happened again. I have 2
snowmobiles, and i use this truck to
pull them and it does very well. I have
gotten 2 speeding tickets in it and
never realized i was speeding. I
couldnt ask for more, it was a great
year end special, and i got the 0%
interest. i love my truck. by the way,
i now have 45,000 miles on it. the only
thing i've had to do to it was oil
changes, and a new set of tires.


Best Features

4.0 litre motor, 5 speed tranny, and the a/c.


Worst Features

modern interior. kinda blah, but functional.

2004 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab Edge Rwd Styleside SB (3.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

Honestly, I was out looking at
a Tacoma but just couldn't get over
that front end and I found the Toyota
dealers were just too proud of their
trucks. Went by the Ford dealer on the
way home and set my eyes on a loaded
Ranger Edge. I got more serious when I
found out my brother-in-law had a 2000
Ranger with 87,000 miles and the only
problem he's encountered has been a
sensor replacement, $34.00. I was
really sold when the dealer came $4000
off the list. Drove it back to St.
Louis that same week end and by the end
of the trip, I noticed the truck really
coming alive with personality, looks,
handling. Matched with the auto and
4.10 ratio gears you c


Best Features

Ride, Ford quality.. Let's face it - if you want a truck there's only one.


Worst Features

2004 Ford Ranger SuperCab 2dr SuperCab XLT Value 4WD Styleside SB (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


Review

I drive a mix of heavy freeway and city
streets, about 70 miles/day, and have
averaged a very consistent 19.5 MPG in
this truck..I'm pleasantly surprised
given the great acceleration with this
truck. It has a 5 speed, and 4.10 rear
end with traction lock. Overall, I'm
very happy. Even the paint job was
flawless from the factory. I've noticed
that for 2005 they got rid of the Value
package. That's too bad, it was a
great deal in '04. You should know
that the engine has a limiter at about
95 miles/hour. In areas where the
speed limit is 75, and many drivers are
going 80 to 85, that limit was scary
the first time I reached it.


Best Features

The 4.0 sounds good, accelerates great. The fit and finish is excellent.


Worst Features

Wish I had gotten the 4 door supercab rather than the two door. Putting large objects in the back is rough or impossible. The sound system is not great...muddy bass. Also, the doors do sound tinny (I read this in another reviewers note...guess I'm not the only one.)
