We've updated our reliability stats for the Ranger to include owner experiences through September 30, 2014.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2004 Ranger: 46, low, very small sample size
2003 Ranger: 26, low, very small sample size
2002 Ranger: 71, low, very small sample size
2001 Ranger: 75, low, very small sample size
2000 Ranger: 54, low, very small sample size

Additional participants would be very helpful. (I'd love to be able to drop the disclaimers and cover all model years from 2000 on.)

To view the repairs behind these numbers, check the stats for other cars, and sign up to help improve this information (next update in February):

We've updated our reliability stats for the Ranger to include owner experiences through the end of 2014. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year:

2004 Ranger: 50, low, very small sample size
2003 Ranger: 28, low, very small sample size
2002 Ranger: 74, low, very small sample size
2001 Ranger: 61, low, very small sample size
2000 Ranger: 37, low, very small sample size

We'll have further updates in May and in August. As suggested by those sample size notes, additional participants would be very helpful.

So, how have these cars been doing lately?

Our reliability stats for the Ranger now include owner experiences through March 31, 2015. (Others are nearly a year behind.)

In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year ("low" is best):

2004 Ranger: 57, low, very small sample size
2003 Ranger: 39, low, small sample size
2002 Ranger: 92, moderate, very small sample size
2001 Ranger: 32, low, very small sample size
2000 Ranger: 69, low, very small sample size

No stat for a model year? Then we very much need more participants for it. Same for those with small sample size notes. Next updates in August and November.

Our reliability stats for the Ranger now cover the year ending June 30, 2015. (Others are over a year behind, and so report how these cars were doing when a year younger.)

Repair trips per 100 cars:

2004 Ranger: 60, low, very small sample size
2003 Ranger: 15, low, small sample size
2002 Ranger: 100, moderate, very small sample size
2001 Ranger: 44, low, small sample size
2000 Ranger: 74, low, very small sample size

The small sample sizes could explain much of the differences among years. Additional participants would fix this :)

We've updated our reliability stats for the Ranger to include owner experiences through the end of 2015, about eight months ahead of other sources. In terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year--lower is better:

2004 Ranger: 8, low, small sample size
2003 Ranger: 60, low, small sample size
2002 Ranger: 118, high, small sample size
2001 Ranger: 37, low, small sample size

We've updated our reliability stats for the Ranger to include owner experiences through June 30, 2016. Reliability information elsewhere is based on a survey conducted in April 2015--well over a year ago.

Repair frequencies, in terms of repair trips per 100 cars per year (lower is better):

2004 Ranger: 0, low, small sample size
2003 Ranger: 73, low, very small sample size
2002 Ranger: 110, moderate, small sample size
2001 Ranger: 32, low, very small sample size

These are all over the map, likely due to the small sample sizes. I'd love to provide more precise stats, but we need more participants for this to happen.
