I'll second that. Shoot, I've never seen the truck, but I can tell you this... if it went up for sale tomorrow I'd be scrambling to sell my Ranger and pick it up.

i love and hate my truck.

I love to drive it and at the same time i dont.

I miss my truck as a stock truck, but then I would miss it for what it is now.

i love this truck

ive only had it for about a month so far

and i was so used to my supercharged/low to the ground/ROOMY/good handling grand prix

everytime i drive it, it feels so different, but after having the truck for a while, ive fallen in love with it. you can do so much more, in this last month ive towed a trailer, used the bed for big stuff, gone off the road a bit and got it dirty. it really is fun. and its not too big, but not too small. and the aftermarket is very big compared to the grand prix.

i could never go back to a car as my daily driver. theres something about a truck that makes you feel a bit safer and...maybe a bit more macho. i will always have a second car, for the racetrack and for weekend fun. but i will always have a truck to rely on when that weekend car blows up and wont run. :D

love mine. it's my first new vehicle also. i owned a bronco 8 years ago and always said i'd get another truck when i could afford it. i've also owned a dub and want to get back into one. either a mk2 or a mk4. it hurts alittle when i have fill the tank since i fill it from warning light to full ever time.
i also like the fact, only me and another fit comfortably in my truck. my golf and my dynasty always had 3 or 4 in it. at least my taller friends can fit in the truck with more legroom then a golf. if i do get another golf, i'm removing the rear seats and making it a 2seater.

anyways, i'm glad i bought a truck over a fusion. i wouldn't trade it for anything.

Wouldn't be a Ranger if it wasn't being fixed many many times!

Back when i got my first car when i was 16 (im almost 20 now) i had a 1990 Buick Regal.....i hated it. After that car died on me (thank god) i got a 1992 Dodge dakota pre-runner (lift, tires, glass fenders, bumper blah blah blah) and i got into a wreck with that. Then i got my first ford, a 1997 F150 4.6 V8 and i fell in love with it. I have to sell it now because of high gas prices and i got my ranger that i have now. I personally dont care for the small cab and lack of power from the ranger, im more of a full size guy myself....If i had my choice, id be ridin high in a 2006 F250 Turbo Diesel sittin on 40 swampers!.................I think i just drooled over that haha!

By all means, comment on my truck. Hey, it's about sharing information. If you had a reliable Volkswagen or Audi, my hat's off to you. The numbers don't lie. No matter what statistics you're looking at, the Volkswagen (any model) is a step down from the Ford Ranger in terms of reliability. As a previous owner who spent better than $15,000 repairing his Volkswagen (which was under warranty) I felt obliged to share my experience. If yours is different, all the merrier.

I would not want to go up against Volkswagen in a warranty dispute. I have, numerous times, and it's not worth my time when I can drive a car that's backed better by the factory.

yeah too bad full sized trucks dont get good gas milliage :( As stated above "If i had my choice, id be ridin high in a 2006 F250 Turbo Diesel sittin on 40 swampers!" Me too! Crazy to see how many people on here actually don't "like" there rangers, I love mine :-), just bought it with my own money i earned, no payments etc. and for some reason it gets just as good of gas milliage as my 95 4 banger ranger, and my new ones a v6 which i figured would get like 20 mpg if that, but i was wrong. I love the rangers granted they are somewhat small but theyll go anywhere and are very reliable, at least mine has been. The only thing i would change about mine is i wish i had gotten one with 4x4, but i couldnt pass up the deal i got.. :D all and all i love it and has NEVER given me any problems or left me stranded anywhere. RANGER FTW!

I wouldn't buy a diesel unless I had to tow a toy hauler or big trailer. Then I would only put a mild lift with mild tires. Sorry I don't see a point to trucks on 40" tires and stupid lifts.

You know i have had my truck for just over a year and so far the only issue I have had is that Sh*t slave cylinder otherwise my truck has been great it takes me where I need to go and as long as I keep it maintained which I am very particular about I believe it will last me a really long time.

For the size yea it is a bit small inside but just think you dont have to waste your gas driving people around I like that.

Also Rangers are easy to mod and its fun and for the most part halfway cheap.

Good luck with whatever you choose but for me I am sticking with the ranger love my truck it has done me right
