2001 Ford Ranger XL 2.5 from North America
You get what you pay for. Not a lot!!!
Transmission problems at 80,000, costing $1750 to fix.
Engine runs rich causing muffler problems every 4-6 months.
Poor acceleration and Power.
Horrible Gas milieage. It is projected to get 25 city (Only getting 18-19) and 20 city (only getting 13-15).
Extremely bumpy ride.
Other than problems listed above the car has been reliable, but expected a lot more from a Ford (Built Ford Tough, doesn't say much for what a Tough means to Ford). although, It is a nice style small truck and I am not ashamed of this ride.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Did you beat the truck? That might explain the tranny problem, or maybe you forgot to change the fluid in the auto tranny.
As for your engine troubles, they could all probably be solved by one stupid sensor or something screwy in the computer.

The auto trannies in these trucks (and Explorers) are trash. They're based on a design from the Aerostar van.
