1999 Ford Ranger XLT Off-Road 3.5 Flex Fuel from North America
I am certain this will be the last Ford I ever buy
Wipers turning on without hitting the wiper switch then wouldn't run for days.
Had wiper switch replaced under the recall twice. Still had problems. The things seemed to be fine for awhile. Then it all went down hill again.
50% of the time I don't have wipers at all.
This happened before and after the second switch recall replacement. When the wipers stop working so does the 4-wheel drive, interior lights, the door chime, and some times the air bags systems doesn't charge up.
It has been in 4 different shops including the Ford Dealer they say nothing is wrong. that the systems check out fine. Even if the systems in question aren't working.
If I lightly touch certain fuses in the fuse panel it kills the engine.
Since Dec 12 2006 I have been without Wipers, 4-wheel drive, and the other systems mentioned have all failed to work.
I like the truck for the size. it is quick to get around town and out on the open road.
The cabin could be roomier.
Over all I wish I had listened to people and never bought a Ford. Had issues with my Ford Tempo. Should of stayed away from the Maker.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
