"My second 2000 Ford ranger (both bought in excellent used condition), like I said, very reliable motor and trans. First big repair after 10 years and 2 trucks almost identical is now looming large: heater core replacement, @ 8 hours flat rate it's going to cost me over a grand. This truck I have now has a problem with the factory stereo and the heater fan motor makes a card-in-the-bicycle-spokes noise. Thefirst one I had was buit in Ontario and seemed better, but was newer."

Pros: "Beefy Drive Train, Decent on Fuel, Can't kill it"

Cons: "Headroom, touch sluggish, some rust prone spots"

"I bought mine up in Maine for 500 bucks with a blown head gasket and changed it myself for a total cost of no more than 75 bucks. I have since put over 10,000 more miles on it without a single complaint. Even at 217,000 miles, I can easily average 18-20 mpg highway with the 3.0 bolted to a 4 speed auto with the 4.10:1 rear end. Is it a fast car? no, but come winter time I sure have a blast flinging it around. Even in 26 inches of heavy wet snow it trudged right on like it was a dry sunny day in August. Downsides: I am over 6 feet tall, so I personally have some headroom issues. They discontinued the model in 2011 so it'll be harder to get parts in the future. Some issues with the clear coat flaking after 14 New England winters. Still in my humble opinion the best small pickup to have hit the market, perfect for countless light utility and off road applications."

"Have had for 9 yrs. bought@ the end of someone's lease in 2005. I am a senior citizen who does her own yard work, and this truck does the job, hauling. Many out of state trips, as well as moving furniture with it. Good 4X4, pulls people out of a ditch,good traction. its been my partner in travel. Only downfall is the gas mileage. 15 Mi. to a gallon. No major repairs, just things replaced as they fall apart due to the age of this vehicle. No motor or transmission problems, its been good to me, and I've been good to it. People often ask me if I'm selling it anytime soon. Looking for a ford focus(totalled my last one) as its getting harder and harder to get up in the truck, (73 yr. old)."

Pros: "Perfect size, Dependable, 4WD good in snow"

Cons: "4.0L only gets 16mpg, 2WD not good for snow"

"I have owned "6" different Ford Rangers in the last 25 yrs, and I have bought them both new and used. I just purchased #6, which is a 1999 Super-cab 4dr 4WD 3.0 V6, with auto trans, that has ONLY 55K original miles on it!! I have had both manual and auto trans, both regular and xtracab 2- and 4dr, step-side and style-side beds, and both the 3.0L and 4.0L engines. Although I have owned mostly GM and Toyota cars over the years, I am particularly fond of these little trucks. They are dependable, fun to drive, and relatively inexpensive to maintain. The 3.0 V6 is better on gas than the 4.0L and pulls strong and drives well, and the bigger V6 runs smooth and strong and feels like a V8. The 4dr supercab is the way to go, as it gives you the extra space in the cab and room for 2 to sit in the "jump seats". The 4WD is also a must to have, esp. if you live in areas that get alot of snow in winter. The 2WD Rangers are also very smooth and dependable,and a little better on gas, but typically they lack for good traction/handling in snow over 3". All the Rangers I've owned have never given me any significant problems, and I find the size of this truck is perfect for most jobs you will need it for. I like the style, the ride, and overall performance and dependability of these trucks, so that is why i'm currently driving Ranger #6 !!!"

Pros: "A reliable machine, ample cargo ability for DIYers"

Cons: "typical rear-wheel slipage"

"This machine has performed well over the past 16 years. It has given no significant problems that I could not fix myself. One irritant has been the windshield wiper control, which while it has mind of its own - I simply got used to it over time. Other than that it's performed admirably: the extended cab is a significant plus (cargo, tools, and extra passengers etc.) The upgraded upholstered seats make for comfortable long-distant driving"
