1998 Ford Ranger — Minor faults that appear to be common in fords - blend door broke so truck only blows hot air. Besides that, this is a great truck. Mine is 12yrs old with 184k. With regular oil changes and a little tlc, this truck is still going strong!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Sturdy, reliable

Cons: Blend door easily broken

Good Work Truck — Its ok. great offroad, not enough weight in the back, if you give it much gas at all, you can smoke the tires. gets really bad gas mileage even though its a just a v6. dont get one that has been totaled.

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

Pros: Offroad

Cons: gas mileage

Awesome!!! — 5 speed manual, 4 cylinder engine. Low maintenance. Terrible acceleration, has a tough time making it up hills. Seatbelt stopped working. Lights in dash went out. One of the meters are screwed up. Brake lights don't work. Tire went flat, so I had to replace the front ones. I put Rain-X on my windshield, rain practically flies off my windshield now. I frequently buy windshield wipers because I always buy the cheapest ones. I should invest in more expensive windshield wipers next time. The truck takes relatively wide turns. Terrible traction. Needs an oil change. Has driven almost one hundrend and fifty thousand miles. Her end lies just beyond the horizon.

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

Pros: It will get you from point A to point B.

Cons: Read above.

Take It If It's Given To You - Then Sell It. — 3.0 V6 - underpowered and a gas hog Suspension - what suspension... Brakes - use the 2 minute rule Power steering - dubbed 'the howling' Interior - not bad Noise - Say what? Auto parts stores will love ya! They look good sitting still...in the front yard...with weeds around it.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: They can be picked up cheap.

Cons: They can be picked up cheap.

1998 Ford Ranger — I love this little truck. I have only owned for a month now and drive it almost more than I do my Mustang. It is a 2.5cy I4 with a 4 speed with over drive. It has a large amount of torque. The only issue I am having with it is the exhaust rattles because there is a mount broke. Other than that this car is extremely fun to drive, and is well built.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: A lot of torque, fun to drive, does truck things well.

Cons: None at the moment
