1989 Ford Ranger XLT 2.9L from North America
I like Ford Rangers, but this one has been a bad one
The automatic transmission would not shift until 4,000 RPM's, and then started slipping real bad.
Radiator started leaking along the side.
Right front brake line started leaking were rubber meets metal.
Air conditioning sprung a leak and now will not hold any pressure in the system.
Plastic around seat-belts has cracked and made sharp edges.
Interior is very clean and worn well for the age of the truck. Dash is still in one piece with no cracks. No rips in the seats or carpet. Headliner still in place with no rips.
Body still in great condition with no rust.
2.9L provides okay power, but sucks gas as bad as an F150 V-8.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
