1988 Ford Ranger STX 2.9 from North America
This thing just won't quit
Overdrive (5th gear) broke - repaired.
Outside drivers mirror loose - replaced.
A/C quit - replaced with R-134 system.
Brakes started grabbing - replaced lines.
Fuel guage broken - use trip meter.
Dark blue paint faded and is peeling from hood and roof.
FM section of radio quit.
This is a tough truck. There are certain weak points (such as above mentioned 5th gear) but considering the rough use I've given this truck over the past 17 years, it has done very well.
Interior is in great shape.
Still on original clutch with no indication of wear.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
