The Ford Ranger is an excellent truck. I have put over 230,000 miles on it and it's still running strong. There are no rattles and it is as solid as it was back when it was new. I have had no issues with anything on the truck. As long as you complete the scheduled maintenance and checkups the Ford Ranger will last you a long time. The interior is definitely dated as this truck is almost 20 years old. I have upgraded the stereo so I can play music off of my phone and I had to replace the speakers in the door of the truck as they blew out a few years back. Other than that, this has been the most reliable vehicle I have ever owned and I would highly recommend it to anyone. The fuel economy is not up to par with newer vehicles and you will receive lower performance if you are not keeping... (more)
Story
When I bought my motorcycle out of state, I hauled it home with this truck!
Pros
The pros to this vehicle are hauling capacity, the bed of the truck, the reliability of the truck (230,000+ miles and still going), and the resale value.
Cons
The cons to this truck are its poor fuel economy and it is getting pretty old. You'd be better off with a newer vehicle!

My vehicle runs great. It is a smaller truck that can seat three people tightly in the cab. The transmission is a manual, and has not had an issue yet. The car was rusty when I purchased it, but after some hard work most of the rust has been removed. My fuel pump and fuel filter broke at the same time, which left me stranded. Luckily the part was an easy find, but unfortunately it was a hard fix. Replacing the two parts took me almost 8 hours. There is plenty of hauling space in this truck. The bed is about six by eight feet, and it has a topper so weather is never an issue when hauling. The door hinges seem to be lower quality, they are extremely loose and they do not always open the door on the first try. Maintenance on this vehicle is extremely easy. I was able to replace my transmi... (more)
Story
My girlfriend and I made a sleeping mat in the bed of the truck while camping and stayed very warm.
Pros
The fact that this vehicle is so popular is awesome, because it makes it so parts are very easy to find, and the local auto shop never has to special order. Also having a manual is great because it focuses me to pay attention more while driving.
Cons
The age of the vehicle makes it scary to use at times and also the door hinges really annoy me.
