    Overall Very Pleased. Very Reliable And Fun To Drive — Love my Ranger. Decent on gas. Easy to maintain and clean due to rubber floors. Lots of ground clearence with good stability. Bought it with spyed in box liner (only way to go). Not much room if you need to carry more than 2 people though.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Looks great and not bad on gas

    Cons: Rides a bit rough and seats are not made for long journeys.  Bit of sway and rear door air noise in high crosswinds.  Rear traction not great in snow/ice

    My Ford Ranger — It's a good car. I like it , it' s verry intresting to drive a big pick up. but somme time there is dificult to parcking this huge car. Some times I would like to drive a small car. we have also good handling.

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

    Pros: the big space

    Cons: It 's  a bit slow

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Great little truck

    Cons: not 4x4

    I Will Never Get Rid Of It Willingly — Its a manly vehicle, no dumb little asian car like the civic. It drives great, maybe a little rough. It's actually not bad on gas, I can get 500Km on a tank. And it's fun to drive, exhilarating. In all, it's great, good on gas (not to expensive to own) it goes fast enough for me, looks good inside and out/

    Pros: Manly, cool, and its super sexy

    Cons: People might find it a little rough

    The Passionate Monster — i just love the size and height and usage i hate nothing about it it rocks the body work is robust but also has finesse nice chroming and alloys the 2.5lt turbo has enough poke for normal motorway driving and change to 4 wheel drive to pull a tree out the ground , literaly

    Pros: it does what you want

    Cons: there are no negs for me

    Rating Ford Ranger 4x4 — The only bad thing is that she's really heavy on fuel but yet again it's nice to have some power under you're right foot if you need it!!!!!!!!!! Other than that there's no problem, handles well, performance is great (on- and off-road) for a pick-up and it's verry nice to drive in town and on the long road to HENTIES!!!!!!

    Pros: PERFORMANCE

    Cons: GAS MILEAGE

    Kevin's Ranger — The acceleration is ok, you really have to have a heavy foot to get it going off the line. However, during the acceleration it has great sound, I love driving my Ranger because of it. Only thing I regret about it is the gas mileage, its pretty bad for a 3.0 V6, the best I've ever got was 290km...per tank.

    Pros: Great build, Nice sound, Horrible traction in the winter (some see it as a negative, i see it as a Positive..makes driving fun!)

    Cons: Gas Mileage!

    Great Little Truck — I do not recommend this truck without 4 wheel drive. With 2 wheel drive it can still tow the fishing boat but it has some trouble in bad weather. You can turn off the passanger airbag which is convenient if you have smaller people in the truck with you. The truck gets great gas milage (especially for a truck).

    Pros: gas milage, ability to turn off airbag

    Cons: poor handling in bad weather unless you have 4 wheel drive
