2000 Ford Ranger Long Bed 3.6L Flex Fuel
Five words. Don't buy it
Where do I begin?
Wipers go off by themselves, have for 3 years no matter what I do. It's just random.
Speed sensor tanked after 3 years, was told by my mechanic that they're the worst he's seen.
Transmission shifts hard since 50,000.
I've had this truck too long. It's a piece of garbage. I would never recommend a Ranger to anyone.
The one good thing I can say is that it's cheap. If I'd have dropped some serious cash, I'd be pissed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Sounds like you might of gotten a lemon by all means. I do know Fords are notorious for their electrical issues, but we've owned about ten Fords in the past twenty years, and never did any of them have major problems, with the exception of our 1997 Mustang's fuel pump failing @170k.
And yes the speed sensor did fail on my 2000 Ranger too, but not until 150k. Pretty sure these things will happen to any vehicles that old eventually.
