Terrible Ride
By Andrew Sievert on


2005 Ford Ranger 2dr Regular Cab XL Fleet Rwd Styleside LB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


This Truck is good in many ways,
however it has the most irritating
vibration in the seat(rear end problem)
between 20-50 mph the rear just shakes
and vibrates. I tried to have the
dealer fix it but they could not and
then on my 4th visit they had a Ford
engineer inspect it
The conclusion was that this is how the
truck is supposed to perform and there
is no fix available. I just got it july
29,2004 and will be syuck with it for a
long time to come. I would recommend
you look elswhere if comfort and a
smooth ride are important.

Best Features

Very nice style for a basic compact pickup,also good handling and power (6cyl)

Worst Features

Try to achieve a smooth low speed ride like all the Japanese and most all other comparable trucks
