2001 Ford Ranger Edge 4x4 4.0L V6 from North America
Everything you expect and more from a great line of trucks, even greater improved in 01'
Drive shaft replaced because the truck jerked when it stopped and when it started, under warranty and a TSB.
Fixed and drives smooth as glass now.
Rear leaf-springs squeaked bad over bumps, they REPLACED the whole spring along with the bushings, which were the reason for the squeaks. I didn't complain.
Check engine light went on at 22k or so and it was the tube mounted delta pressure feedback sensor.whew.
That's it so far, and all that was wrong when I bought it, so far taking good care of it pays off.
The new 207hp 4.0 SOHC is a swift cookie compared to the old model, more the 40 more horses, how can you complain. They are quick. They have even more torque than HP, some real get-up. The 5sp auto is pretty cool too, learns your driving habits.
The value is super. I bought mine used with 21k miles for $11k less than it would be new. The Dakota freaks can say they have good power too, but you're going to spend 10k more. They look great, and hold value reasonably well compared to Dodge. Chevy's don't even compare anymore with the current line.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
