The life of a 2004 Ford ranger.

The truck was purchased in 2006. It is 15 years old and just recently that I have had to replace parts to this truck. It tells me that Ford makes a good product. The body has held up extremely well. Replacing a tie rod and muffler and windshield wipers. The mileage is not as good but, it still runs well. Upholstery has held up really well and is fairly comfortable. For a factory made radio with CD and cassette deck, it plays as good as any Bose system. My mechanic simple said that it was the age of the truck and he did warn me that you might find some more wear and tear but, for a 15 year old truck it runs really well. Other then replacing the tires, that is about it. I wondered why Ford stopped making the ranger pick up as it was so reliable. I understand they now are going to bring the ranger back. I plan to keep this truck at least one more year. It has really be reliable. If the price is right, I just might purchase the new rangers they are coming out with.

Great four wheel drive for winter.

I bought my 2004 Ford ranger Edge 4x4 used a little over a year ago. The winters here in northeast Ohio can be treacherous so the 4 x 4 is perfect.. Having the ability to shift to four wheel drive while in the vehicle is awesome, and works really well in these crazy winters. I love having the bed and the ability to haul all sorts of things. I have even towed a few vehicles, other trucks, but we will not mention names! Overall the power and reliability is great. The cost of repairs so far is very affordable as well. The only drawback is the extended cab is not quite big enough for my six foot, 250 lb. son. It is a good thing he does not go with me too often where he is stuck in the back!

Neon blue ranger has cool splash decal, that was flames when I bought it.

I fell in love with this truck when I first saw it sitting on the lot as a trade-in. It looked sporty and so unlike anything I would have normally looked at. I asked about it is history and was told that they had not had a chance to give it a good look over. I test drove three other vehicles on the lot that day every trip made a lap around this ranger, my ranger. The more I looked at it, the more I liked it. I drove my truck home that day and have not regretted my decision once. Driving her still.
