"It's right outside.........this little guy will do everything a full size can do and still drives nicely. The interior is still like a car, not a cockpit and you have room to breath. I've never had a problem in 45k miles and it looks respectable. It's holding it's value and has the desirable insurance rates for safety. I get a respectable 22 MPG for this 6 cylinder."

"I paid $8k last June for this truck. It had 112,000 miles and I now have 128,000 and I've been to NH 3 times and to the western mass a couple times. It has never broken down. I drive it to work 5 days a week which is about 30 miles both ways. All I've done is change the oil every 3,000 and put all new rotors on, pads, front wheel bearings which you have to replace on these trucks if you get new front rotors, one caliper and air filter. The only problem is these 2.3L engines only have 143 hp so getting up to highway speeds takes about 1 mile and hills are hard to climb, but these engines can go up to 300,000 to 400,000 miles and they have a timing chain, not a belt like the older Rangers."

Pros: "Useful, good on gas, perfect for light duty"

Cons: "Bad in snow, lightweight, small"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"I've owned my 06 Ranger XLT for a while now and never had any problems with it. Just new brake pads, and a wire for the horn that maybe disconnected over time, very easy fix, however. This truck is a perfect truck for small duty/daily driving. Interior is a little compact but thats with any single cab pickup. RWD is obviously bad in snow, also as with any RWD truck (provided you don't get the 4WD variant.) I would recommend this truck to anyone looking for a decent small-duty pickup with good gas mileage. Same mileage as my previous car, which was an 02 Sebring."
