Disappointed in Ranger build quality.
By DJ on


2007 Ford Ranger XLT 2dr SuperCab Styleside SB (2.3L 4cyl 5M)


Purchased 4 cylinder with automatic 07 Ranger based in part on positive reviews. Found truck to have poor build quality with little support from Ford. Makes excessive vibration from exhaust and very loud transmission whine in low gear. Dealer and Ford customer relations say this is normal for this type vehicle. Vehicle in shop 4 times within first month of ownership. Paint on tail gate and bed sides has large metallic runs. Door out of alignment. Ford fix for exhaust vibration is to install clamped on weight on exhaust pipe aft of converter. Fixed door alignment problem. I'm afraid to have paint work fixed as the color won't match. Buyers, better due your due diligence before purchase.

Best Features

If the build quality were like it should be, then the best feature for me is the size and fuel economy.

Worst Features

Have actual build quality equal Fords marketing, "built with pride" quality.
