2001 Ford Ranger Mail Truck 2.2 Inline 4 from North America
1 million miles and going strong
Fuel pump several times.
A bunch of batteries.
Lots and lots of spark plugs and wires.
All maintenance stuff.
Well, Ford must be holding out of us. 1.1 million miles on the original drivetrain.
This truck was made with the same engine as the Mail Carrier's engine for our local post office, and I can't tell you how reliable this thing has been. So much better than the original Ranger.
Of course, it's got no features, so nothing really goes wrong, but the few things it does have, all work. Radio, Speedo, Lights, and Wipers.
Anything that gets over a million miles on the original equipment is one heck of a vehicle.
Of course now it's tired, but it still starts everyday, so we keep using it.
Ford knows how to make a truck, now what I don't get is why they make them for US?
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

1,000,000 miles in 5 years is 200,000 miles a year, which is 3846.00 miles a week. Is this interview for real? I don't see how anyone can drive that much?

Well, just think of how much a postal truck has to cover per day anyway. Large neigbourhoods almost all day every day, except sunday? Plus, the trucks probably go freeway or are used in different areas. I'd say it's plausible.
