2003 Ford Ranger XLT 4X4 4.0 from North America
Good towing ability and 4X4 is fine
Had issues when under warranty with the CD player, and the 4 wheel low coming out of low.
I have had 2 master cylinders on the clutch, and I am about to put on my third, the second only lasted 2 months.
Great truck, I hated the factory tires and put Bridgestone Revo's on it. It is a great riding truck now.
I average 19 MPG city and 22 highway with 59,000 on the ODO.
It handles great in snow even out of 4 wheel drive. I had nothing in the bed last winter and it stuck to the road, and when I realized I was in 4" of snow on the road and slipping, I dropped it into 4 low and it was like a magnet on the road. Stuck right where I drove it.
Cabin could have been better, the '04 is set up a little nicer.
After the first 60K I still love it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
