2011 Ford Ranger XLT 3.0 turbo diesel
A pleasure to own, and very practical
The Ranger has a very slight rattle somewhere in the dash. It only seems to do it when it's cold.
Other than that, nothing.
It doesn't ride quite as well as my old Landcruiser, but I just put that down to the different suspension designs. At least it gets vastly better fuel economy than the old Toyota. The LC got 23-25L/100Km. The Ranger gets about 8L/100Km. Overall, I'm very pleased with the car. It has excellent torque and power.
On a recent work trip we had a Ranger as a hire car. It was an older model with over 400,000Km on the clock, and it was very badly abused (ex mining vehicle). The old Ranger performed and handled very well considering its condition. I will be a happy man if my Ranger drives as well as that one with that many Km's on it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
