Old Reliable — i dont like the huge dint in the finder or the fact that its its a 4 cylinder but i do like the fact that for a truck and one with a small engine that it can scoot and will get up to a top speed of 115 which is more than enough for the size of the engine and the amount of miles on it

Pros: its got ok acceleration and overall top speed for a 4 cylinder truck thats 12 years old

Cons: its a 4 cylinder

Ranger — I love to drive it, the only thing that i do not like is th fact that i bought it after it was rolled over, so it had some body damage. It has really good pick up for a 6 cylinder. And the 5 speed transmission is a plus. The motor is really solid, it has over 200k on it and it is still going strong. The gas mileage is not to great but, it being fun to drive makes up for it.

Pros: fun to drive

Cons: body damage

It Was Free And It Runs Alright. — Alright on gas but it doesnt have as much pow4er as i would like it to. I also wished it had more cabin space.

Pros: Air Conditioning, CD player, Can Haul stuff

Cons: 4-cylinder, standard cab (no room for sound system)

Gas Sipping 1/2 Ton — Gets me where i wanna go at about 25-26 mpg. Just enough to haul my bike to the races

Pros: fuel saver

Cons: the 2.3 4 banger is so so but when i drive my dads Silverado it feels like a supercar

It Was Ok — For being a regular cab and a 4-cyl, it was a pretty good truck. Ran great, looked good. It handled pretty good too.

Pros: Looks, handling

Cons: Power

Great Truck — Love the truck. Its got a 2.3L 4 cyl engine, 5 speed transmission, and factory CD player. Obviously not a kick ass truck but it makes for a great daily driver. Wish it had a bigger engine and 4wd.

Pros: Great gas mileage and looks sharp

Cons: Small engine, 2wd

Something I feel is that car manufacturers dont want you to be comfortable in a small pick up and they are hoping to direct you to one of their pricey behemoths . The Ranger is an example of this . Th... Read More
