Never again
By Pat on


2006 Ford Ranger XL 2dr SuperCab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Bought my truck used 1 year ago with 12,000 miles on it. Just got back from my 5th visit to the dealer to have it repaired. Once for 4X4 transfer switch breaking, 3 times for transmission leak, and once for blown shock (the truck hauls air and has never pulled a trailer) and a clogged fuel filter. All with less than 24,000 miles. Oh, I have to go back next week to have the shock installed. The dealer had to order it. What's sad is that I really like the style and size of the truck. It's perfect for my needs, but I'm not going to have it spend as much time in my garage as it does as the dealers.

Best Features

Style, size, radio, heater. A nicely put up truck.

Worst Features

Fuel economy, plus problems noted in my review. I may have got a lemon, but I notice that Consumer Reports rates this model as a used vehicle to stay away from. I wish I would have read that article before I bought.
