2000 Ford Ranger XLT 4X4 3.0 V6 from North America
An awesome pick-up!
Nothing has gone wrong with the Ranger since I have owned it.
I am very pleased with my Ranger and it was definitely a good buy. It has ran perfectly since I bought it and it has no signs of having any problems any time soon.
There is more engine noise inside of the cab than I expected, but it is a lot quieter inside compared to the same model year Chevy S-10 that I test drove before buying the Ranger. The Chevy also felt cheap inside compared to the Ranger and my old Toyota pick-up, and it felt sluggish when you stepped on the gas compared to the Ranger.
The 4x4 works great. I use it every winter and regularly travel in deep snow.
The stereo in the truck also surprised me when I discovered how well it worked. It can handle high volumes better than any other stock system I've heard.
The only complaints that I have about the Ranger is that it could have a little more power from the 3.0 V6 when towing, and although the gas mileage is what you would expect from a 4x4 pickup, It would be nice if it got more miles to the gallon.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
