Like A Ranger, But Bigger Interior — I picked it as an upgrade from a Ford Ranger. Its built on a similar platform, but with 4 doors, and a smaller bed

I Love My Silver Knight! — I love it cuz its a truck and suv rolled into one but it has no where near the speed i'm used to. I also love it cause it stops on a dime and has really great michelin tires. Its grey on the inside and silver on the outside. All My Friends Love this car cuz of the window in the back!

Overall Its A Great Comprmise And Works Very Well For Me. — From the start I knew this was going to be a good truck for me. It fits my personality well as well as my stuff and my friends. Gas mileage could be better and of course being a guy I'd prefer a larger engine but it does get me from A to B quick and safe and it has save my ass a few times. Good buy.

Pros

Has over 100K in miles now, and have only replaced a battery, plugs, and water pump.

Cons

Only a V6 engine, Arm rest is getting worn. Side liner of bed makes it difficult to put bike rack in place.

Good Vehicle To Get Out Of Town And Off The Beaten Path With. — All in all this vehicle has been a reliable vehicle, that has safely taken me to work, and play. Have had no major mechanical issues, and all though it only has a V6 engine I rarely feel like it struggles up hill with cruise control on. The bed of the truck is small but fits the roll of quick pack it up and get out of town. The sides of the bed made it difficult to put my bed runner bike rack by thule on it. On and off road no complaints.

it should have come with a v8!

Great Truck — Ford really hit the mark with this vehicle. Good looks, great functionality, decent (upgradable) performance, and just an overall solid vehicle. Very Low ownership cost, like basic maintenance and tires. I would so recommend this vehicle to anyone, and the new body with the V8, totally ROCKS.

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

Pros

Great looking truck.  Plenty of room for the family.  Really liked the ride height .  Small truck but rode like it was much larger.  Felt real safe while driving.

Cons

Bed was very small.  Lacked the power and weight I needed to pull my boat and camper.

Great Truck — This truck was by far one of my favorite ones to have owned. No real mechanical issues. Never let me down. would still have it today but it lacked the power and weight to pull my toys safely. But it was no fault of the truck. It performed just as it was designed too.

Would Buy Again — Performance - lots of power, good handling Build Quality - Flex fuel vehicle, don't use E-85 it damages the fuel system, stick with gas Appearance - both interior and exterior styling are great, good layout Cost of Ownership - gas mileage, 25mpg highway. Front brakes about every 30K Fun Factor - it great in 4 wheel drive, I have pulled car dollys and trailers with it. good in the snow, great stereo
