Getting too old
By R. Jones on


2004 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XL Rwd Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


For the money, for a 4WD, the 2004 Ranger is a good buy for the money. BUT, it is basically the same Ranger I drove in 1993, with two more Mickey Mouse doors. Almost impossible to get in a 5 speed manual transmission. While the 4.O liter engine is good, you'd think after all the years of producing it they could refine in a little better gas mileage. (Consistently getting 17 mpg and I don't hit the gas peddle very hard, very often, and get that mileage.). Truck won't hold a candle to the new Toyota I bought this year.

Best Features

Comfortable, supportive seats. Reliable.

Worst Features

Transmission. Gas mileage. Side and rear visibility. Need a new truck.
