"The 2004 Ford Ranger has been very good to me. As a college student it was quite reliable with minimum maintenance required. It had the luxury of the AC and CD player which was all I really needed in the line of luxury. In the past 2 years of driving it, there never were any worrisome quirks (sounds, odd performance) and I enjoyed it's attractive sporty appearance. The only reason I am giving it up is because I moved to Philadelphia to go to Grad School and with my insufficient money flow I can't keep up with it. So public transportation is my ride these days. It is a good vehicle for somebody who's body can handle some bouncing around. Long drives can get a bit uncomfortable but the CD player helps the time go by. All and all a perfect vehicle for work or a person who needs to haul their stuff around often."
"Great truck! rides a little rough and not so much room in supercab but overall its a great truck. 4.0 liter is the only way to go. Good performance and built better than pretty much any other compact pickup. I average around 17 mpg so mileage is decent. The only thing i wish i would have gotten was a four door supercab not the two door."
