Either way the Ranger is cheap truck with outdated engines and interiors.
Like I have told others if you don't like what I post then don't read it.
When it comes to cheap interiors.... umm.. have you been in a Silverado? yuck. A few friends of mine have them and even one with an 06 SS has an interior that looks like it could have come out of an 88 CK. The new ones arent a ton better in most trims. The high end models are nice, but that can be said of most any truck. The Tacomas are ok. Just too big for me and you talk about bad on gas? See what a Tacoma V6 does. My cousin is a service writer at a Toyota dealer. He says guys ***** about Tacomas milage all the time. You could just get the 4 banger.....
except that is an ancient engine too...
it goes on and on. EVERY brand has its faults. Toyota head gasket problems, LS piston slap, mod motor spark plugs, Dodges lovely suspensions, and yes, Ranger slave cylinders. (my 3.0 shifted fine till it was stuffed) He's asking for simple suggestions on a recent purchase, not a reaffirmation of someone else's buyers remorse.
