2002 Ford Ranger Xlt — Solid truck for a small size. Decent power from 4.0L engine. 4 wheel drive will get you through almost anything. 6' bed fits most materials and provides lots of storage if you have a locking cover. Jump seats in rear are very cramped. 6 disc in dash changer is a nice feature.

Time To Trade — I like the Ranger for it clean looks and it works well for me as a basic construction work vehicle. Not much uphill pulling power when towing in the mountains but I have hauled a lot of things with this vehicle. The supercab is marvelous for getting things quickly out of the weather when my tool box is already full.

Pros

Great vehicle that's gotten me far. Still has a good amount of life left at 130,000 miles.

Cons

Annually there's usually about a five to seven hundred dollar fix that needs to happen now that it's in its older life. But with it payed off, it's worth it.

Durable, Performing, Trustworthy Vehicle. — Visibility in this vehicle is phenomenal, as well as how long it has lasted and still seem to plan to last. It has a little engine trouble here and there but is well worth it. Great vehicle with really reliable long-term stability.

Pros

This truck handled great off-road between the 4.10 gears and the light weight it could go just about anywhere.

Cons

The overall quality of this truck.

Terrible Truck, There Are Better Options Out There. — The performance was decent for a small truck with a 4.0L V6. It handled decently, acceleration was decent as was the gas mileage. The quality is sub-par, water pump seized at 9k miles, brakes were metal to metal at 15k and again at 30k, needed new tires and shocks at 30k. The truck had multiple squeaks and rattles even prior to taking off-roading. The towing capacity was worthless on this truck. Cost of ownership was terrible due to all the issues and wear items that did not last as long as they should have. The ride quality was not the greatest.

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

Good, Reliable, Truck — can't tow a house, can't seat six... but it does start reliably every day, run efficiently, and haul what it needs to when i need it to. meets the needs of 75% of truck owners. if only ford would revive the ranger, perhaps an international model with a small diesel... i might buy another.

Anita Mann — "Anita Mann" has gotten me back and forth across the country with my travels! 'She' has held up well! I get around 19-21 mpg depending on the traffic. I drive a manual transmission truck to help with the miles per gallon. I have had to little work done to her.
