What a great, reliable, low maintenance, rock solid truck
Replaced water pump, thermostat, and radiator at 145k miles. Did my own repairs. All parts together were not over $180.
Replaced oil sending unit; was dripping oil all over the side of engine. Was a $15 fix.
It's not fast, but is the best truck I've ever owned.
Have not had to touch the 5 speed transmission since I bought the truck.
AC quit 5 months after I bought it. A/C pump failed, but I just roll down both windows and use the sliding rear window; works great :-)
I would recommend a 4 cylinder 5 speed Ford Ranger to any one that wants a cheap, reliable, easy to work on truck.
I will buy a brand new Ranger when this one dies one day. I think it has another 50,000 miles left!!!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
