Gutless but EXTREMELY reliable
Dash lights have burnt out and are nearly non-existent.
The door ajar switch always thinks the door is open.
The rear ABS doesn't work. Changed the rear brakes myself, and they no longer lock up like they used to.
This is the cheapest vehicle I have ever bought, and it is one of the MOST reliable. I purchased it for $1,000 four and half years ago, and the only thing I've had to do is put a clutch in, which I kind of expected when I bought it.
Other than that, I have taken numerous trips to the mountains, and loaded the thing down so much that the rear mud flaps drag.
GUTLESS but stinkin' RELIABLE!!! I've put almost 40,000 miles on it just around town and with trips to the cabin, and it just won't stop. Runs like the day I bought it.
I have nothing but great things to say about this little pickup. It fits my body well and the seats are more fitting and comfortable than my Mercury Marquis, which is designed to be a plush ride.
I wonder how long it will last. I'm not getting rid of it until it dies! Love my Mazda pickup, I would definitely buy another Ranger and/or Mazda pickup. So handy to move little things due to the low bed.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
