"Bought mine 3 years old. Previous owner leased until warranty ran out and put alot of wear on it but still looks good. Over 135,000 and no major problems. Comfort might be better but it is a truck after all. Will buy again or try the Sportstrac or Edge. Taken care of, these trucks will go over 200,000 easily."
"I've replaced the radiator twice in the past 6 months...only to find out that the engine block had three cracks in it. I've heard that these vehicles had coolant problems that could lead to massive engine wear problems. Well, that certainly came true in my case. At only 90,000 miles, I need to sell the truck b/c it needs a new engine. I won't give Ford a dime ever again."
"I have owned my Ford Ranger for almost 5 years now. It has been a great little truck for me. Hauling wood, dirt, rock, mulch, furniture, boats, trailers and everything in between. I've pushed this truck to it's limits many times before and it always pulled strong. I have even done a little off-roading with this truck. Though it is 2WD, it does pretty well. Gone off road several times and only gotten stuck twice. I plan on having this truck for years to come. I love little my LITTLE RED RANGER!"
