. — I have a 93 ranger, 4.0 Liter, 5 speed. Its performance is great, makes awsome milage, and has balls. great drag racer. Ownership of this is awsome, everyone likes it. Its awsome to drag race wtih, you slip on the line, but after that, you take right off

Very Nice — it needs a paint job, it runs great. it is a four cylinder. Has a good bit of power for it. It cost me $900 to buy it. It takes $35 to fill it up. Can haul 2,00 pounds. This car is very fun to drive. It is a 5 speed.

Great Little Work Truck That Gets Good Gas Mileage - Don't Try To Race It — This is an exciting 98 bhp 2.3L 4 cylinder truck. It has been in my family since it was bought off the dealer lot. I am the third family owner of it. Only has 107,000 miles on it. I only drive it about 1,200 miles a year and that's been the case since 2002. It had 98,000 miles on it when I bought it from my dad. I have read nothing but negative reviews on the repair history for this truck but for some reason, it has been as good as gold for my family. We do perform regular maintenance on it and replace parts before they break so maybe that's the key. However, it gets great gas mileage (21 mpg around town and close to 31 on the highway). We upgraded the exhaust into a gibson cat back system and it improved gas mileage by 2 mpg. It also bumped up the horsepower another 6 or 7 bhps. We installed a customer airflow intake system and that added another 1 or 2 mpg improvement and probably added 10 bhp. It is probably pumping out about 114 bhp now and has noticeably more kick and punch to it. Just replaced the timing belt and the water pump but that was to be expected. Rides great since replacing the shocks and tires last year. Very reliable. Always starts. Even when it sits for months. Love this truck.

Pros

Great build quality, reliable, comfortable ride is nice after a long day at work, great in the winter or for towing trailers or boats.

Cons

Only 20mpg at best, 3.00L V6 leaves a lot to desire in the performance category, and the handling is soft and unresponsive.

I Will Never Sell This Vehicle — Great overall vehicle, my father bought it new in 1993 and gave it to me when I turned 16, and I have been driving it for 3 years now. It has 180,000 miles on it today. Really love this truck, it is great in even the harshest winters. There is no rust anywhere to be found, even though half the time it is parked outside, even in the winter and it never fails to start. It does not get very good gas mileage, but it is still a great daily driver.

Betsy — I bought it 3 yrs ago for 2300.00 and got my monies worth but I have recently had to put more money into it because I am a courier and I do 150- 250 miles a day driving. I hope I can keep her running for another two yrs.

This Was My Second Car I Got It When It Had 146k On It And It Has 168 On It Now I Love It — my truck is fun and i love it i drive it home from school almost every weekend. i put a cluch in at about 150, the onwer before me got it stuck and fried the cluch, and new tires at the sametime but besides for that it has not ever given me a problem. it is purple and has a topper. i need to replace the shocks soon they are about done in. it is dependable and i am going to drive it till it wont go any more.

Pros

I like the power and reliability of the motors.

Cons

I don't like how the front end is lower than the back.

The Bottom Line Is That If I Were To Buy Another Small Truck I Would Definatly Buy Another Ranger. — Ford Rangers are very reliable trucks. They handle great in snow and on ice. The 2wd's are even great in the mud. The motors are very reliable. Mine has a little over 237k on the 4.0v 6, and its never been rebuilt and it doesnt burn a drop of oil.
