'92 Ford Ranger — The acceleration on this truck is horrid, as well as the braking to it, although the handling is very nice (given the low speed this retains, it's no surprise). This truck has needed a transmission fix, among several other problems, yet has held up after all this time and all that work. It's definitely a trooper. The interior is basic for a truck, and the exterior is unappealing. The gas mileage is average, and maintenance required is high. It is, on some occasions a nuisance to drive, but I find it fun at times. This vehicle also has intrinsic value to me, in that my father owned and drove it everyday to work for many years. I would recommend this as a starter vehicle, but nothing more at this point in time with better trucks on the market.

Good For A First Vehicle — It wasn't the prettiest truck but it got me when I needed to go and on top of that i could drive for days on $5 worth of gas and not have to worry about running out because i got around 21-27 Mpg

You Can Set My Truck On Fire, Roll It Down A Hill, I Still Wouldn't Trade It For A Coupe Deville — I love this truck and will never sell it, so to all you naysayers out there the truck will live on until it burns in the firery furnace of hades underworld, after morpheus has taken me on my last forever ending sleep, and my loved ones bury me in the truck

Pros

H.O. V6, 5-speed, two-wheel drive. Fun combination.

Cons

It's still only 165hp from the factory...

Needs More Power!! — Holds together nicely when it's not rusting apart. Overall a great truck. I'm a chevy guy, but I can really get along with this Ford product. It's fun, but not dangerously fun. It's good on gas, and you can pull anything you put on the hitch thanks to the 5-speed transmission.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Good Truck — This truck does what I need it to do and gets good gas mileage. What else can I say, it has been a good truck and it is fun to drive. I have only done routine maintenance, nothing really major.

Won't die, heater is poor, no air conditioning - none installed, body rusting out, weak engine.

1992 Ford Ranger That Won't Die — I have owned this truck for ten years now. It has had very few serious problems. About once a year it is in the shop typically due to some overdue maintenance item - last time was brakes + rotors. The body is rusting out, the heater doesn't work well, and it generally has the feel of an old truck just like it should as that is what it is. I don't anticipate putting any more money into it. When it needs something else, I will go get something else. It has served its purpose. Gas mileage is great - 20+ average. At 120,000 miles it began using some oil and developed a small leak in the power steering. Truck now has 152,000 miles with the same problems.
