Underpowered, But Reliable
Heater Core needed to be replaced when I bought it.
Bought the truck used for $300, it had been sitting in a field for a few years so I had to go through it and give it a good tune up to get it road worthy. New glow plugs, thermostat, heater core, brakes, lights, and belts had it running. I Like the truck, but it I wish it was faster and had 4 Wheel drive. I think Ford put a way underpowered motor in this truck, It can move a heavy load, but loaded or not this truck is a real dog off the line. On the other hand it gets almost 30 MPG so it is quite cheap to drive. I know the later Diesel Rangers had turbos, I think a bigger engine with a turbo would make this truck fantastic! So far it is reliable and cheap to drive so it is working out for me.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
