1996 Ford Ranger Supercab V6 4.0L 4WD from North America
Ford = Driver Returns On Foot
Usual stuff: Battery, Windshield Wiper Pump, brake pads.
Transmission blew at 55000 Miles!
I was Irate! The Transmision should last at least a 120,000 Miles. I got this truck from my grandpa, I wouldn't actually have bought it myself. It does well off-road and the suspension is awesome, but it totally and completely unreliable. Driver returns on foot is right. After I went on a GENTLE dirt ROAD (not trail or off road) my transmission lost power slowly, but surely (almost imperceptable at first). The tranny fluid had all drained out of the vehicle, ruining the.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No

It sounds like you both didn't finish the review and hit something to cut a transmission line or the pan. That's probably how all the transmission fluid leaked out, unless a line or seal burst, and I never heard of that ever happening before on a Ranger from people I've know who owned them. Maybe that road wasn't too gentle after all or you were truly in a lemon instead of a GM truck or a Jeep.
