"Ford seems to have the most durable of the small pickups, and incorporates the convenience features of an automobile. My mechanic likes Fords and I like small trucks because I haul stuff from time to time. He says parts are easier to change, and need less servicing. The engine stays in tune better and MPG stays consistently high without 'tinkering' or changing parts. Particularly nice is the rear doors because I carry an extra passenger sometimes, and I like to lock up my tools without sliding and flipping the seat every time. The guy who loads sand and gravel will give me full measure, but he won't in other small pickups because they FAIL with that much weight. I've pulled a concrete trailer with every kind of pickup, and the Ranger pulls and handles far better with that much weight."

"THIS VEHICLE HAS ENDURED THE ROADS IN MICHIGAN FOR ALMOST 17 YEARS. WE CALL OUR RANGER BIG BLUE, WE GET GOOD GAS MILEAGE, EXCELLENT FOR HAULING CARGO; A LITTLE LITE IN THE REAR ON ICY ROADS, BUT OVERALL AN EXCELLENT VEHICLE TO DRIVE. FAMILY AND FRIENDS LOVE IT, WE GET OFFERS FROM SOMEONE TO PURCHASE BIG BLUE ABOUT 5-6 TIMES A MONTH. IT RIDES SMOOTH, YOU CAN FORGET YOU'RE DRIVING A TRUCK"
