"I bought this vehicle in 1993 and only have slightly over 90,000 miles on it. I have driven it mostly to work (about 1 mile away). I have only taken it out of town on average once or twice a year. Only once had a major problem on the highway but was repaired to normal. This has been a fantastic pickup truck only a little slow going uphill an some major hills."
"My little Ford Ranger never gave me any issues dealing with mechanical or electrical. To be honest, the truck did the job any pickup owner is looking for: Got you from point A to point B, was reliable with starting/running, can haul what you needed when you needed it, and was easy to maintain. If you don't mind it not being "Flashy", I would recommend this truck any day. Especially for a first vehicle for your kid."
