A $6.000 Dollar Mistake — This car has been a disappointment, overall. It is under powered, has needed front end repairs 2 years in a row, driver's door handle broke, and the gas mileage is way lower than it should be on a 4 cyl engine

I Love This Truck And Look Forward To Driving More Fords In The Future. — Well my truck is a bright red ford ranger with four doors and a step side bed with the fx4 off road package. i enjoy the larger of the two six cylinders that ford offered in this truck. power is plenty with the four liter and the 4.10 locking differential. I think the truck handles very well compared to other trucks i have driven. i bought this truck with only seventy two thousand miles and have only done normal maintenance. I think the out side of the truck is very stylish with the interior simple but nice. The way i drive the truck gets around 17mpg. i think this truck is very fun to drive and i look forward to moving into another ford when i have the money to buy what i want.

Off-roading is a must in this one

Cons

Can't think of anything.

Ranger 4x4 — Had the 4x4 option with a lift kit. It made getting to the cottage a breeze. Definitely a must when travelling on the back roads of rural Ontario cottage country. One vechicle I regret selling. Still see it around ... stayed local.

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

Love Her — I love the power ranger! but the sentra sucks but it gets 34 mpg! the power has seen everything from rocks big enough to break the diff to ripping toms yota out of the ditch in the snow! ! ! chea! chea!

Great Truck! — Great truck, the 3.0 V6 is a strong motor. Not the fastest thing in the world but reliable and will last forever. Built great for a compact truck, solid interior and you can tell its build correctly. Highly recommend for someone that doesn't need a fullsize but still needs a truck

My Ford Ranger Edge — Performs pretty well. Interior isn't all snazzy and what not, but it's all good. Exterior is a nice plain white paint job. Very fun car to drive, you own the road. Gas mileage isn't horrible, I can manage with it.

V8 Please!!! — Ford needs to invest in a v8 for the ranger. I honestly love the looks of the ranger as of late. Gas mileage isn't too bad. I have never had it on a long highway drive yet. The interior looks like any other ford, too much in common.

Door latches & handles

Good Lil Truck Could Have Bigger & Better Interior — Mechanically sound, will pull most anything a half ton will...just watch out for the plastic door handles & latches...musta been outsourced by ford. Love the 4x4 option, cruises great through snow. pretty good milesage for a 4x4 truck, between 24-16 mpg
