"I purchased this vehicle in leiu of a 6000 dollar more expensive tacoma. The ranger came with all power options and was much less expensive. While the 3.0L engine isn't the same hp as toyota's 6 cylinder, it has got the job done. I mostly use this truck for city transport and house projects and yard work. Very reliable truck. My bed has never been horizontally level, but for what I paid for this truck new, I can deal with imperfection."
"Two plus years of trouble free ownership. It's the perfect small truck... comfortable, versatile, with all the comforts one really needs in a vehicle. Great towing for small to medium loads. Easy to park and decent mileage to boot. My son and daughter both have Ranger trucks too, and they have been great rigs!"
"I purchased this truck new in August of 2001 - I have not had a single problem with it and stand by the quality of this vehicle - with all of the complaints about American auto makers not making a quality products - this truck has proved any critics wrong - I will purchase a Ford again - and love the quality my Ranger has given to me"
"Great truck for anybody. Tows everything i've hooked to it (including things that I shouldn't have) Capable off roader when completely stock and very peppy (does burnouts in second gear with the manual transmission)"
