Great truck- 1994 Ford Ranger XLT, 4.0L V6, 4X4, supercab

"I've had this truck for 12 years. It's been in every type of weather here in the NorthWest. Reliability: 9 because I had to put a new motor in after 238000, a new clutch a few thousand before that & now at 270000 I need a new transmission. Oh I guess everything doesn't last forever but with those miles I guess that's close. Very dependable."

"My Ranger got good mileage, and had very few mechanical problems, no matter how hard I drove it. No doubt the Ranger is the best vehicle I have ever owned. It's a shame Ford no longer makes them."

"This truck has a new airconditioner, a fairly young battery, a new brake master cylinder. the complete brake system was reworked about one year ago. The engine uses less than one quart in 30 days. It is an old friend."

"I always wanted a Ranger, Splash edition with the bigger engine and side-step bed. So, while stationed in the USA for a year, I bought one. I love it so much. Off to Guam in September and I really don't want to sell it. But storage being such a hassle, I guess I must. I hope I find her a good home."
