A well rounded economical truck
Thus far, I haven't had any major problems with my Ranger. I did purchase the vehicle wrecked, so any complications I had stemmed from that.
The ABS light was on, I simply reconnected sliced wires and the problem was solved.
I am 21, and have owned 8 different Rangers since I was able to drive at 16. Everything from a 1985 4x4, with no radio, no power steering, or even a vinyl floor mat, from the factory; to a 1996 Ranger STX extended cab that was practically a Cadillac in terms of comfort and interior features. The 2000 Ranger I have now is by far the best performing, being a standard cab with a step-side (fiberglass) bed. I enjoy blasting through the gears every day on my way to work, and still get an honest 20 miles to the gallon. I don't know how some of you can claim 12-15 mpg.,but I suggest you change your driving style or have the tuning of the engine checked!
The only flaws I see in this truck are the seats. The 60-40 split bench seat makes for a sore bottom on extended trips.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
